Hi, everyone! I’ve got another square Christmas card to share. This time it’s Ellie the Elf from Stamping Bella that I finally put to use. I colored this image for day 18 of Kathy Racoosin’s 30 day coloring challenge back in July, and thankfully, I’ve gotten better at turning those colored images into cards instead of having them just lay there in an ever growing pile.
I used a square die from Lifestyle Crafts to die cut my elf down to the size I wanted, in this case 4″.
I then stamped a sentiment from the Scripty Xmas stamp set from Mama Elephant using Enchanted Evening ink from Papertrey Ink, before gluing my panel to a 4 1/4″ square card base made from Dark Indigo cardstock, also from Papertrey Ink. I finished off my card by gluing on some stars from a sequin mix from Hero Arts. They’re iridescent, which I’m normally not a big fan of, but it worked on this card.
I love the ease of clear stamps, but rubber stamps like this one have much finer lines, and they stamp beautifully every single time, I love that. I also love blue for Christmas, but that’s hardly a secret 😉
