Happy Tuesday! I hope you are having good week! I had a bit of a crazy week last week and so I am a little later in getting this posted than I wanted. I am so excited to share this card with you because I really LOVE how it turned out and I am automatically filled with festive excitement whenever I look at it! this is the fifth in my Christmas Series videos for 2018!
I am a sucker for Lawn Fawn stamp sets and when I saw the new Holiday Helpers stamp set, I immediately thought how perfectly it would pair with the previously released Christmas Dreams set! So, with that thought, I began to dream of the perfect holiday scene! A sweet little elf couple busy wrapping Santa’s presents for everyone on his nice list. Here they are: cozy and comfortable in front of a roaring fire, with some sweet cocoa and a faithful hound snoozing in the corner.
I first diecut the Mama Elephant Madison Avenue frame from some Neenah cardstock and then started laying out all the various stamps. This way I can visualize the scene and make sure that I am adding enough elements to create a nice balanced look! I then created a textured wall and floor using some older supplies that have been much neglected. I could not find the exact embossing folder and embossing plate but I found very similar ones that would create the same look. They are linked below in the supply list.
There are a lot of images on this card and a whole lot of coloring went into it. I was very mindful to use the same marker combinations to color all the reds and greens, etc. I think this makes the card look more cohesive. I also added interest by having some of the elements extend past the confines of the border. I love how that looks! To add some glitter and shine, I added Nuvo Glitter drops to various elements. I am really suprised how much better I like these Glitter drops compared to my beloved Stickles.
