Hello crafty friends!
I hope you are having a wonderful Sunday :)
Today marks the beginning of another challenge at
The challenge is:
When I saw this photo I was inspired by the gifts wrapped so neat and pretty.
Here is the card that I created with that in mind:
I love this little Elf! I stamped him up and then did a little masking so that the gifts could be situated slightly behind him. I colored in everything with my copics and paper pieced the silver presents with the glitter paper. I sat it aside and then started building my card. One of my goals this year is to actually use/do some of the items that I pin on pinterest so I went to my card sketches folder and picked a sketch to use. The sketch I picked is an older one from My Favorite Things:
I built all my layers according to the sketch and then added my colored image panel to the front of the card. For the three silver dots, I simply used a standard hole punch (for school notebook paper) and punched them out of the same glitter paper. I thought that was a neat way to add a little more shimmer. Can't have too much shimmer when it comes to Christmas cards right? lol!
Be sure to head over to the Christmas Card Challenges blog to see the amazing cards my design team sisters created. I hope you are inspired and decide to join us and play along with the challenge. I would love to see what you create :)
Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and take a look at my latest creation!
I really appreciate it :)
I hope you have a great crafty day!
