Radiating Elf christmas cards

Hello everyone,

I´m Maria from  My Craftway to Happiness and I´m one of the lucky ladies that made it into Lesley´s amazing Design Team. I´m beyond honored that I´m in it with all the super talented ladies.

Today I´m sharing another one of my german christmas cards using the boy elf from the Elfish Antics stampset.

I started with a diecut piece of whisperwhite panel and then used my new Radiating rays stencil to color in the background. I used crushed olive distress ink and my blending tool to apply the color to the paper.

For the main image I stanped the little elf from Elfish Antics in memento black ink on whisper white paper and colored him in with my alcohol markers. I colored him in old olive and cherry cobbler and added white details with a gel pen. For the buckles on his shoes and belt i added some shimmer using the clear stardust pen from Sakura. After I finsihed coloring the elf I diecut him with the coordinating dies.

I then popped him onto a stitched circle using foam dots. I added an old olive glimmer ring that i punched from some leftover scraps. Under the circle I popped a foiled snowflake doilie that was originally silver. To make it coordinating to the rest of the card I colored it green using my coordinating alcohol maker and popped the entire piece into the middle of the rays.

From another scrap of white paper ( I know we all have them) I cut a small banner and stamped a german sentiment on it which means Merry Christmas. I popped it up using foam dots again.

For the last finishing touch I diecut some stars in 3 different sizes from another scrap of old olive glimmer paper and added them to the sides of the card. The base of the card was made from  whisper white thick cardstock.

As this card was so much fun to make I made 3 more in different colors:

I´m wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and happy holidays!!!

Maria 🙂
