I masked off the card to create the vertical panel. I blended on soft green and soft blue and then sprinkled water droplets on the ink. I used my MISTI to position the sentiment and stamped it twice to give a crisp image. I stamped the little elf directly on the card and also on a scrap of white card. I coloured the image on the white card with Copics, carefully cut it out, edged it with a black marker and then adhered it on to the card base. I added some sparkle to the bell and mistletoe with a clear Wink of Stella brush. I added glitter to the cuffs of her mittens and finished by added a touch of glossy accents to the mistletoe and hair tie. On the inside I cut a mat layer of pale grey card and on the white panel stamped a greeting and some little wrapped chocolates. They're called Kisses - they look great, but I don't like the taste!!!
I used the sketch from this week's CAS(E) this Sketch! - CTS#193 for the layout and I got the idea of an elf from Merry Monday - MM#216 where they want to see elves.

We're having a reasonably quiet weekend. Although Kat is going to a BBQ with her school choir at a local cider farm and Jonathan is going to be out at a photo shoot. So I'll have time to play in my craft room. Perfect. Have a fun weekend!
