MFT Santa's Elves Christmas card and Sue Wilson Poinsettia Garland Christmas card

 


Hello everyone and welcome back to the ABC Christmas March challenge. I'm hosting this one and have a little prize to offer the winner.





Our themes this month are 

E for Elves,

F for Fir tree

and/or G for Garland.


My first card is E for Elves using my all-time favourite elf stamp set from My Favorite Things.




I stamped and coloured 2 of the elves and used the Penny Black Wood Floor die and some patterned paper to create a little indoor scene.



The happy banner was cut with a die from Crafter's Companion and I stamped and embossed the little Christmas strip to finish it off.


My G for Garland card used the Sue Wilson Poinsettia Garland die.


I cut the foliage from some textured card and added Nuvo Drops to make berries. The poinsettia was cut from 2 different cardstocks, one of them is Mirri card which adds a bit of shine behind the top flower although I haven't been able to capture this in the photo. The background is paper from a Tonic pad


The sentiment is probably my most used Christmas one from the gorgeous Clearly Besotted Most Wonderful stamp set, and I embossed it with clear powder.


The DT has some great cards to show you over on the ABC Christmas Challenges blog and I hope you will feel inspired to join us this time.

I'd like to play along at
