Today's adorable little elf Christmas card was created for the latest Merry Monday and Send A Smile 4 Kids challenges. I created my card by layering on some adorable printed papers from the American Crafts Wish List 6x6 paper pad onto my white card base. I then added a small strip of glitter paper from the Paper Studio Glittered Cardstock paper pad in a coordinating green. I cut some fishtail banners using some more of the same green glitter paper, some cherry cobbler red cardstock from Stampin' UP, and some white cardstock from Staples using some Jillian Vance dies and adhered them directly onto the card. I then die cut a scalloped circle using a Spellbinders die and a white circle using a My Favorite Things pierced circle die. I stamped the tree onto the white circle panel using the larger tree stamp from the Simon Says Stamp Be Joyful stamp set and the stump from the WPlus9 Pretty Patches stamp set. I then stamped the adorable little elf onto some Copic-friendly cardstock using the Stampendous Snowy Short Stacks stamp set and colored him in using Copic markers. I fussy cut him out and went all around the edges with my dual tip Memento black marker for a nice clean look. I popped him up off of the focal panel using some Stampin' UP foam dimensionals. Using my We R Memory Keepers corner chomper I rounded the corners and added some black dashed lines all around the outer edge of the card and the focal circle panel. I also added some pretty shimmer to the elf and the tree using my Sakura clear star gelly roll pen. I love how adorably this turned out and plan on mass duplicating it to donate to the Send A Smile 4 Kids card drive. I hope you like it and don't forget to leave a comment and subscribe. Thanks!
