MFT Santa's Elves and Bright Rosa Christmas card

Hello everyone, and welcome to another Christmas Challenge at Happy Little Stampers. How did we get to September so fast!!! Although you can make any Christmas project for our challenge, we do have a fun twist to get your creative juices flowing and this time our theme is 'elf'.

I came up with this card

I used the new elongated hexagon dies from Bright Rosa to create the card shape and just trimmed off the ends to give this shape. The die set includes the inset snowflake die and I really like how it looks with blue paper behind it.

The other elements are from the My Favorite Things Santas Elves set and I coloured the elf with Copic markers.

You will find lots of Christmas inspiration over on the blog and I hope my Teamies and I can tempt you to get on with some Christmas makes now that the year is whooshing by so fast.

I'd like to play along at

What a cool shape that is! The geometric pattern and the colors you used are fabulous, Carol! I've used pops of red with aqua before, but now I see I love red with baby blue, too!! Hugs, Darnell

WOW! This card has so much lightness. Openwork die background and blue make the card has a winter character, and the silhouette of the elf completes the card beautifully. Very effective design
