This year we have welcomed Jingles to our family.
He’s our new elf on the Shelf and joined our family on Monday 26 after I had completed a workshop for a good friend.

It felt a little magical because one of the cards we made happened to be an elf card.

I didn’t do a step by step tutorial but hopefully you can follow with my brief explanation!

I was inspired by Inking Idaho who made these sweet elf shoes and just changed it so it matched product I already had!

The shoes are created using the Top Note Die (pg 193) which I keep saying is one of the most versatile Dies you can own!

Cut your die into 4 and cut a 1/2 circle in the cnr where the two straight sides meet. Each Top Note die will make 2 pairs of shoes. A 3/4″ circle is the best size but we only had a 1″ and it worked!

The second part of the shoes is created using the ornament punch to create the Winkle Picker boot. I so wanted to own a pair of winkle pickers in Highschool……never had them 😦
Then use a  Dauber (pg179) to sponge a darker colour around the edges to give your shoes some depth.

Use two strips of DS christmas paper to create the stockings and ribbon for the laces.
The sentiment is the one we were given as a Christmas gift by Aaron at Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt event in Sydney this year. I love the message “It’s Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air” Its in the Holiday catalogue.
This stamp can be cut out using the Apothecary framelits or the Labels collection framelits (both on page 191)

The background is embossed in Square lattice on Gumball Green cardstock and the red is Cherry Cobbler.  Such gorgeous Christmas colours.

Hope you feel inspired to try this card – it was really easy and looks so sweet!

Hope you’re all on the nice list….
