Christmas Elf

Good morning.  I hope you all had a good weekend.

I had a very productive Saturday afternoon crafting.  Feeling well chuffed with what I produced including my sample for our new challenge at Crafting from the Heart.

Our theme is as always

'Anything Goes'

Our sponsor is

I have chosen to use a digi image from our sponsor called 'Christmas Elf Ornament;

One thing I love about Christmas (actually there are loads of things) but one of them is the excuse to use sparkle and glitter.  Christmas cards to me always means getting my sakura out for some sparkle.

I have coloured my little Christmas Elf in sakura pens and copic markers.  I then die cut her out using a spellbinders layering die.  I also cut a faux mat in red for matting.

I then started with a kraft 7x7 card blank followed by some red card and then some white card both of which have been die cut using my double pierced square dies.  I have also embossed my white card using Twinkle Twinkle embossing folder from Creative Expressions.

My other topper is another piece red card and white card.  The white card has been embossed using a freebie embossing folder from a craft magazine from which I also got my layout design from.

The sentiment is one of Phil Martins which has been die cut using double pierced tag dies from creative expressions.

I have finished my card off with my usual flower!  I love my flowers and this little one is die cut using a marianne poinsettia die and the holly branch is also a marianne die - one of the first lot of dies I ever bought.  Just goes to show, if you look after them they will last you a lifetime.
