Hi, everyone! Another Wednesday, another Mo Manning creation. This time, it’s a simple Christmas card, featuring the adorable Little Elf Tippi. He’s so cute tangled up in those lights, I couldn’t resist coloring him!
I went for a no lines version, which is my preferred Copic technique, it makes the image come to life much more than a black lined version ever could.
I die cut my colored piece with a faux stitch rectangle die from My Favorite Things. I added a red piece of Maja Design patterned paper to my card front and glued my elf panel on top, effectively creating a 1/16″ red frame around my image.
I wanted to keep the focus on the cute little elf. The best way to do that is to keep it super simple and subtle. I added a piece of a Doodlebug Design mini doily before gluing on a Papirdesign button that says Merry Christmas in Norwegian. That’s it.
This is a pretty mail friendly card, the only thing that adds a little bulk is that button, everything else is glued on without any dimension.
I try being good at showing the Copics I used, but sometimes I forget. This time I didn’t.
