Hi, crafty friends. I have a super simple card to share today. Sometimes, it takes forever to create a card (or at least, it feels that way), other times it goes so fast. Today’s card falls into the latter category. I guess there’s something about a time crunch that makes be efficient – I definitely work better under pressure.
I love Mo’s elves, and this is Little Elf Kippa. The original image faces the other direction, but I flipped it in Photoshop so that he or she is facing right instead of left – one of the many advantages of using digital stamps. I also printed it at about 12% opacity for a no line look, only keeping the eye and eyebrow dark before printing.
Once the image was colored, I used the largest die in the A2 Stitched Rectangles STAX 1 set from My Favorite Things to create a faux stitch border. I then white heat embossed a sentiment from the Mini Messages stamp set from Mama Elephant in the center of the darkest bauble, before adhering the panel onto a top fold card base I created from Enchanted Evening cardstock from Papertrey Ink. I added a few diamonds from the Urban Chic mix from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards to finish off the card.
Simple color palette for this one. It was super fast to color too, which isn’t usually the case with no line coloring.
