My card uses the Enchanted Elves stamp set. I modified both the elf girl and reindeer by cutting away some of the polymer around them so that I could bend them. They are stamped adjoined, then water-coloured and fussy cut. The patterned papers are from Glitz's Finnley paper pad and the bow is tied with May Arts black burlap string.


Also, Cath over at Moxie Fab World is featuring Paper Smooches stamps today. She's given them the Moxie Fab "Stamp" of Approval! Please be sure to stop by to say hello. Your comment could win you five stamp sets!

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Remember to check the Paper Smooches Blog on Monday to see if you are the lucky winner of the Enchanted Elves stamp set

I am freaking out over this background. My most fave color in the entire world is that bright green. Is that patterned paper? It almost looks like a wash of paint.

Lindsey said...

I love this card, Em! The way that cute reindeer is giving a little nose *smooch* to the sweet elf girl? Perfection. As is your colouring and the way you coordinated that perfect background.
