A Gift For You

I've been playing with punches again. ;)

I made another elf (you can see the card I made on a previous blog post - here).

This two-page 5 X 5" layout is for a punch art instructional swap I'm in on SCS. Rachel is the hostess. I love this idea, and hope to someday put together a nice little Punch Art Instructional Notebook for easy reference.

Okay, here it is:

It doesn't show up in the instructional page very well, but I actually punched a very small circle/hole in black cardstock before punching it with the 1/4" circle punch. That's how I got the white spot in his eye. The white circle behind the black one shows through that little hole.

This elf is a lot of work to make, but oh-so-worth-it! I think he's ADORABLE!!!

Cardstock: Paper Company Black, Stampin' UP! Blush Blossom, Blushing Bride, Cherry Cobbler, and Handsome Hunter, and Staples White
Designer Paper: Paper Studio Cozy Little Christmas Stack and I Believe in Santa Stack, and Target Glitter White
Embellishments: Stampin' UP! Silver Cord and Ribbon

Jeanette, this is just as sweet as pie! What a darling creation - and a great tutorial! I wouldn't have even had a clue how to make that w'out the paper you added - fun and festive indeed! And I know how much you love creating with Christmas :)
