I always get my Christmas cards done early so that I can enjoy the wonderful Christmas season.
So I'm also always looking for the monthly Christmas blog challenges for inspiration!
Here are two cards I made using the same Elf stamp but with different hats and using different colors and die cuts.
The stamps are from Jolly Old Elf from Waltzingmouse which unfortunately closed several years ago.
I used the Pierced Feature Frames:Ovals from PTI for this one and added clear Tiny Twinkles as the berries for the mistletoe on the end of the elf's hat as well as on the sentiment strip.
I actually made the purple card below first - but wasn't completely happy with it - not really sure why - so I then made the green one! Then I thought, "I guess I do like the purple one too!" So here they both are!
The elf body and the hats are separate stamps (there's one more hat in the set, more like a Santa hat) so for the purple elf, I stamped and cut out the hat and adhered it over the Bold Borders Diagonal die from PTI. I added Cherry Ice Stickles to the boot cuffs, belt and hat for a little sparkle!
