Hello Everyone!!

Welcome to Day Eighteen of The Twenty Five Days of Christmas!!

I will be sharing a different Christmas card every day from December 1st through December 25th.  On today's card, I stamped a cute elf and paper pieced her.  She is layered onto pretty papers.

Card Stock: Certainly Celery and Cherry Cobbler - Stampin’ Up; Solar White -Neenah.

  • Make the card base from Cherry Cobbler CS; layer with Certainly Celery CS and the Decorative Paper.  
  • On the Solar White CS stamp the Elf Girl with Tuxedo Black ink; color the face, hair, legs, and hands with Copic Markers. 
  • Paper Piece the Elf Girl:  Stamp the Elf Girl on two different Decorative papers.  Cut out hat, hat band, shoes, and coat; glue to the first stamped Elf Girl.  
  • Stamp Sentiment on Solar White CS; cut with die.
