Christmas Candy Elf Card (KBD Aloha Friday Challenge #112)

Happy Friday! :o)

My second post today. If you missed the first one just scroll down or follow a direct link here.

Today a new Aloha Friday Challenge starts at Kitty Bee Designs.

The challenge for this fortnight is #122 - Christmas in July. 

We have two sponsors for this challenge: A Day For Daisies and  The Paper Nest Dolls, so there will be double prizes! :o)


And here's my take on the challenge: Christmas Candy Elf Card. :o)

For my card I used a GORGEOUS A Day For Daisies 'Candy Elf C' digital image.

I went with a same layout as on my card I shared in December 2016 (find it here).

How I made my card...

I printed the elf on a watercolor paper and left it aside for a day. I colored the elf in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After drying, I fussy cut the elf, traced edges with black marker and softened the elf with stylus ball.

I printed another elf directly on a card base. After printing, I folded card base and colored the elf with black marker. Then I glued the colored elf over the "black one". This is kind of paper piecing and adds some dimension to the image. :o)

Next up was a sentiment. I used a font I downloaded from dafontImpact Label Font. Love it!! :o)
Important: Read licences before downloading.

I printed the sentiment on a white cardstock paper, cut it out, colored edges with black marker and got lovely label, as if I had label maker. I glued 3-D foam on the label and placed it on the card.

As a finishing touch I embellished the card with sequins. :o)

Dimensions: 95 mm x 127 mm (3 3/4" x 5")
