here is the cutest little elf card. I used cb folder (a2 - snow dots), sanded it to get the white core to come through and dot glued it to a slightly patterned blue paper. I found the cutest little elf stamp @ Michaels - $1
I used the wet emboss technique with black ink and clear emb. powder. for shine, just gave him a little color with some markers with a dab of stickles on his hat, buttons and shoes (purple & red), I cut him out and popped him onto a white cardstock circle and did some edge distressing in light blue. The inside says " Have youself an "elfie" little Christmas, which i had attempted to hand write but x'd that idea fast and instead pc printed the saying on the same blue patterned paper that is under snow dots - He is just too cute!
