Cheeky Little Elf!

Handmade Cards, Seven Hills Crafts DT
Cheeky Little Elf (Avery Elle)

I’m on the Seven Hills Crafts blog again for my final DT post of the year. We’ve definitely seen the wintry weather here this week so I have one more Christmas card to share with you this year. My card today features this cheeky little elf from the Avery Elle Elf-Tacular set (which just so happens to be on sale now if you want to grab yourself a bargin)! If any of you still are in that last minute panic, this might be a good design to reproduce multiples of. It’s also a good design to give to a male relation, friend or colleague.

I started out with an A6 white card base and stamped the MFT Bold Diagonal Stripes Background using some Lawn Fawn Jalapeno ink. This is a wonderfully festive bright green and I love the texture when I stamp on my slightly rougher card stock.

Setting aside to dry, I stamped out the cheeky little elf hiding in his present from the Elf-Tacular set in some MFT Black Licorice Hybrid Ink so I could colour him in with my alcohol markers. I stuck to festive shades of green and red, with some light browns for the box. I then cut him out with the coordinating dies.

I chose one of the MFT Inside & Out Stitched Circles that centered the elf perfectly. and cut it out of some Chilli Pepper cardstock. I also trimmed down a thin strip of Black Licorice cardstock so I would have something to mount the circle to the background. A little bit of foam tape helped the little elf pop in the centre of the card.

Don’t you just wish you could find a cute little helper elf in one of your presents on Christmas Day?
