Little Elf Pipa's Christmas Wishes

I have used the fab MOJO sketch this week to create this Christmas card featuring Mo Manning's adorable little elf swinging on a bauble (Little Elf Pipa) & I coloured her with Promarkers hoping to give the impression that she is wearing a festive velvet & fur outfit whilst playing on a glittery bauble (again trying to achieve the look with Promarkers alone so no actual glitter on it).

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the designs, creating a bauble with loop to act as mats for the image & also for the accompanying bauble behind it. The design I added to this one in yellow is from 'Miss Vickie'). I then created a tag with the same looped top so the petersham/grosgrain ribbon would easily go through them both & popped onto the tag a sentiment I created on the PC.

The rectangular layer with the cut-out design is in pearlescent white card which I thought looked great against the 'woven texture' used for the black card base as well as the red card elements & the relatively plain, matt (though undeniably bright), yellow card.

I kept the inside of the tent-fold card pretty simple, creating a second sentiment in the same font as on the front & replicating, the cut-work border as on the front.

Thanks for visiting my blog & I hope you like my card!
