Christmas Card Three! Mama Elephant Cozy Christmas

Here is my third card for my Christmas Card Stash!   This was a very involved card and after taking a few days to look at the results, I don't thing that I am quite done with them.    I am not sure that I will attempt to do another card like this for mass production.  I made 10 of them for my stash but they were very involved with the different steps that I may use these for close family and friends.    

I think my tree needs some presents around it!   Check back in a few days to see what I add to this card! 

I am not done yet! 

Stamps:  Mama Elephant Cozy Christmas
Ink: Distress Chipped Sapphire, Broken China and Tumbled Glass, MFT Hybrid Black Licorice
Paper:  MFT Smooth White, Copic Xpress

My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch 200!!!!

My Favorite Things had the 200th Sketch this past week!   For my card this week, I created a Christmas card scene using my MFT PI Happy Christmas.    I colored her with Copic markers and then fussy cut the image out.   To create the scene, I used the MFT Horizontal Pierced Strips and cut three stripes from Sno Cone card stock.   Next I stamped with MFT Sweet Tooth Pigment ink using the Confetti Background Stamp and covered with Hero Arts White Embossing Powder and heat set it.   Next I used my Tree Line Dienamics and cut from Jelly Bean Green and Sweet Tooth Card stock.  I sniped the Trees off the Sweet Tooth Border and then ran them thru my die cutting machine with the Horizontal Pierced Stripes to match up with the Sno Cone card stock.  I laid my scene out on a 4 x 5 1/4 inch Grout Grey card stock stamped with the Linen Background stamp using Simon Says Stamp Fog ink.  

Stamps:   MFT PI Happy Christmas, MFT Confetti Background Stamp, MFT Linen Background Stamp
Ink: MFT Hybrid Black Licorice, MFT Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink, Simon Says Stamp Fog Ink
