52 Christmas Card Throwdown. Their challenge this week is Christmas Elves.
It took a bit of rummaging but I knew I had an elf in a stamp set that had been a freebie with a craft magazine. Finally found it it was a nit wit freebie and it included the Christmas trees. The sentiment came from another freebie stamp set (I obviously buy too many magazines!)
I stamped the elf and the trees on white stamping card and then coloured them in with copics and fussy cut them out. I trimmed a layer off one of the trees and added the trunk back on to make it smaller than the rest. I matted the card up on green coredinations card stock and freehand cut a white hill, which I stuck on top of the square of blue sky card. I stuck the trees in place with a mixture of flat glue and foam pads to add some dimension and added the elf on foam pads. I added glossy accents to the elf's boot and the candy cane and glossy accents and glamour dust to the stars on the trees. I stamped the sentiment in the bottom corner and job done!
