This elf was one I colored up last year following along with a video made by Sandy Allnock, so this card didn't take too long to put together. Forgive the deep shading on the elf's face - this was me practicing with BV shadows.
I die-cut from the card base a stitched circle and on the cut-out part I stamped with the Candy Stripes Background in Maliblue and Hollyhock inks by SSS. I then adhered the cut-out back into the card base. The elf is standing on a strip of Maliblue on which I embossed the sentiment from Winter Wonderland (surgically altered). As there is no Hollyhock paper, I smeared Hollyhock ink onto a piece of white and when it was dry, I adhered that under the blue.
Thanks for visiting!
