A Holiday Hello from Elfie

A Holiday Hello from Elfie

Here’s a cute Holiday Hello from Elfie card using a unique card design – I’m not sure of the name but I really like the results!  No extra cardstock needed, just cut off 2-3/4″ turn it 90 degrees and attach!  Elfie is so cute – I just love how he makes this card shine!  All that’s needed is a swipe from the Wink of Stella pen on the hat brim and the bottom of the coat.

 

These are the products used for this card:

Now for the sizes and instructions:

  1. Cut Coastal Cabana Cardstock at 4-1/2″ x 11” – Fold in 1/2 to create standard card size of 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″.  Cut off 2-3/4″ from the front of the card base – turn sideways – attach over the DSP – make sure Snail Adhesive is applied to the left side ONLY.
  2. Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 5-1/4″ x 4″ for the inside layer.  Stamp with a verse, if desired.  Attach with Snail Adhesive.
  3. Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 2-1/2″ x 4″.  Use Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to stamp the Elfie greetings.  Use Snail Adhesive to attach to the Coastal Cabana layer.
  4. Cut Let It Snow Specialty DSP at 2-1/2″ x 4″.  Attach to the front layer with Snail Adhesive.
  5. Use Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to stamp Elfie on Whisper White Cardstock.  Use the 2″ Circle Punch to cut out Elfie.  Punch out a background layer of Shaded Spruce with the Starburst Punch.
  6. Colour Elfie with Stampin’ Blends.  Use Wink of Stella to add some sparkle to the hat brim and coat trim.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach to the Shaded Spruce Starburst Circle.  Use Snail Adhesive to attach the Elfie to the card front.

Thank you to Jo-Anne Rogers, my friend & fellow demonstrator, for sharing her talents in her video showing how this card is made!  I have tried to itemize the steps so you can create one for yourself.  If that doesn’t make sense or you need more help, please watch Jo-Anne’s video – she explains it so well!

Even though this card requires the use of 1 full sheet of cardstock, the resulting creation is well worth it and I’m sure anyone receiving it will feel extra special.  Just imagine using any of the many Designer Series Papers that Stampin’ Up! has – the possibilities are endless!

Now for the measurements and instructions:

  1. Score a sheet of Mossy Meadow Cardstock at 5-1/2″ – Cut sheet at 4-1/4″.
  2. On each piece of cardstock, cut a triangle off from the line that was scored to the opposite corner.  Fold on the score line.  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to glue the 2 pieces of cardstock together making sure there is a triangle pointing out to either side.
  3. Cut Brightly Gleaming DSP at 5-1/4″ x 4″.  Cut diagonally so you can use a different side on each triangle piece of cardstock.
  4. Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to glue DSP to the cardstock.  Decide which design you want to be on top of the cross over.  Being careful to only apply glue along the edge, use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to glue each cardstock triangle to the card base.
  5. Cut Mossy Meadow Cardstock at 5-1/4″ x 3-3/4″.  Cut Very Vanilla Copper Classic Ribbon to have a piece showing “Merry Christmas”. Place a length of Tear & Tape along the upper right-hand edge of the Mossy Meadow Cardstock.  Fold the length of ribbon in half – lay over the Tear & Tape – add another piece of Tear & Tape.  This will make it easier to pull out this layer with your greeting on it!
  6. Cut Very Vanilla Cardstock at 5-1/8″ x 3-5/8″.  Use Snail Adhesive to attach over the ribbon on the Mossy Meadow cardstock.  The border is thinner than usual.
  7. Stamp the greeting from the Winter Woods stamp set using Versamark Ink. Sprinkle with Copper Embossing Powder.  Melt the powder with the Heat Tool.  Cut out with the Big Shot and a Stitched Nested Label Die.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach to a Mossy Meadow Stitched Nested Label Die shape that was cut out with the Big Shot.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach to the front of the card making sure that they don’t stick to the inside layer.
