Elf Christmas


It’s Wednesday, and this week I’m sharing a Christmas card featuring Munchin Melvin Elf – M023 from (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) who just isn’t able to resist the delicious Gingerbread cookie, paired with the sentiment Have Your Elf – H094 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps).

I remember my mom baking little Gingerbread men every year when we were little and she even let us decorate some on our own. It was always so much fun! Then it was even more fun when we were aloud to eat them. Yum! Yum!

To create the card this week, I stamped the main image and then coloured it in with Copic Markers. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image leaving a small white border. For the sentiment, I stamped it out using Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink and then embossed it using Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. This was heat set using Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. Next, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Cracked Pistachio ink was used to colour the white paper to match the edging around the base of the card.

For the base card I started out with white cardstock folded in half to create a 6″ x 6″ card. The elf background from Doodlebug – Christmas Magic was cut to the same size as the base and adhered to it using double-sided tape. For the inside paper, Doodlebug – Christmas Magic paper was used again. Using my Cuttlebug and Creative Expressions Festive Collection – Gingerbread Man die I cut the centre piece out. I used the same die to cut out the red border as well. Then I die cut one more piece using just the large border for the white glitter background. Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper was chosen to do this with.

To assemble the remainder of the card. I first taped the centre piece to the main red piece at the back. This was then glued to the white glitter background. The frame, main image and sentiment were added using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. To complete the card, I used some embellishments from Dress It Up – Holiday Collection and Carta Bella – Santa’s Workshop.
