This card from designer Corri Garza really shows the value of thinking outside the box with your dies and digital cutting files!
Corri’s design has a really offbeat take on a love theme, which is unique in itself, but if you look hard at her supply list you see another twist. The socks that make up the central themed element for the card come from a Silhouette digital cutting file called “Christmas Stockings” by Sophie Gallo. It looks like this:
Take the sock on the left, leave off the top cuff and the snowflake, and use some non-seasonal colors…and you’ve got a pair of socks good for any occasion! What occasion could you use a good pair of socks for?

Corri began paper crafting in 2009 when she purchased a Cricut at a Black Friday sale. She started following some blogs and immediately fell in love with card making. Recently, she added a Silhouette Cameo to her craft room and she loves working with die cuts to create cards, gift boxes and altered items. Corri lives just outside San Antonio, Texas with her husband and three kids. When she’s not in her craft room, she is watching her twins playing sports. They are involved in volleyball, baseball and softball, so there is always a game to watch! Corri also enjoys photography, especially taking nature photos. To learn more about Corri, visit her blog.
