Christmas Elf

It is the first of April! Time for another new challenge at Crafts Galore Encore and this month our sponsor is Star Stampz. The theme is Anything Goes and the winner will receive 3 digis of their choice from the store. I was given Christmas Elf to work with and here is my card.

I printed her out onto Daler-Rowney Drawing paper and colored her with my Prismacolor colored pencils. Once completed, I cut her out with a nested oval die and also cut a red cardstock matte with the oval just one size bigger.

I added a piece of striped patterned paper to the left side of a green cardbase and then added the matted image to the right side of the card. The sentiment was printed out on my computer and popped onto the card with foam tape.

I look forward to seeing your creations over at Crafts Galore Encore. You have the whole month of April to enter your projects.

General supplies:
Daler-Rowney Drawing paper
Paper Studio Cardbase and coordinating envelope
Red cardstock
Patterned paper from my stash
Star Stampz Christmas Elf digi
Prismacolor colored pencils
Printed sentiment
Hero Arts Infinity Oval dies
