Here's my stockings project.  I know this is a little different than you may have expected.  I was searching Harry Potter cards for ideas to use my new dies and this Dumbledore quote came up, perfect for my Dobby die.  I drew the quote with my Cricut and colored the first font with a metallic pen.  

I stamped the stocking and added the fiber.  I colored Dobby with alcohol markers.

I made two versions.  I added Hedwig to this card.

Cricut used to print the sentiment
Character World Harry Potter Icon dies
Alcohol markers:  Copic, Hobby Colour, and Spectrum Noir
Creative Memories metallic  gold and green pens
Recollections stocking stamp
Colorbox Black pigment ink
Judikins black detail embossing powder
