These die cut stocking cards would be so cute for Christmas. They are easier to make than you might think! Keep reading to learn how to make them.
All week long I am sharing fun projects using the Trim Your Stocking die set and the coordinating Tags & Trimmings stamp set. This is such a fun bundle to use for all types of projects. I have already shared a scrapbook page I made with it and this Friday I will be showing you how to use it to make a cute gift box.
Today’s idea is a cute Christmas card shaped like a stocking. Most cards I share are the standard rectangle shape so this die cut Christmas stocking card is a fun one. It’s easy to do – you just have to line up the die a certain way on your card base.

Die Cut Stocking Cards Instructions
Paper Cutting and Scoring
- Cut a piece of Real Red cardstock to 8″ x 6-1/2″. Place the long edge at the top of a score board and score at 4″. Fold along the score line.
- Cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 3-1/2″ x 2″.
Die Cutting (using the Trim Your Stocking die set) and Embossing
- Take the piece of folded red cardstock, place on your die cut machine, and line up the fold just inside the left edge of the stocking die. Run through the die cut machine. You might want to pass it through your die cut machine a second time to ensure it cuts through both layers. When you remove the stocking shape, the fold will be intact.
- Cut the stocking cuff from Whisper White cardstock.
- Cut the toe and heel from Quilted Christmas Designer Series Paper. I used the gingham pattern.
- Cut the leaf trim from Garden Green cardstock.
- Insert only the front of the die cut stocking card into the Oh My Stars embossing folder. The back side should be behind the embossing folder and the fold should line up with the edge of the folder. Open your multipurpose platform to tab number 1, form the standard cutting plate sandwich with the embossing folder in the middle, and run the embossing folder through your die cut machine. This will emboss the front of the card, but not the back.
- Stamp Celebrate the Season (from the Tags & Trimmings stamp set) in black ink on the stocking cuff.
- Stamp Merry Christmas (from the Better Together stamp set) in black ink at the top of the 3-1/2″ x 2″ Whisper White rectangle.
- Take a pair of scissors and cut along the score lines for the top flap on the stocking card base. This flap is used when you make the stocking into a pillow box and is not needed for this card, so you want to remove it.
- Adhere the Merry Christmas insert on the inside of your card.
- Adhere the toe and heel die cuts to the stocking using Fast Fuse adhesive.
- Adhere the cuff to the top of the stocking using Fast Fuse adhesive.
- Adhere the leaf trim to the bottom edge of the cuff using a Fine Tip Glue Pen.
