Inspired by Pinterest

I was scrolling through Pinterest, as you do, the other day, when I spotted this pin. Now, every Christmas I'm on the lookout for elf themed card ideas to make for four special friends - so Karen, Sharon, Pam and Kevin, if you are reading this, look away now because I'm about to share your Christmas cards!

I made lime green card into A6 card blanks, then covered the bottom 5cm with red card. The belt is a 1cm strip of black with a 1.5 cm square of gold topped with a 1cm square of black for the buckle, and the collar is part of a die cut large scalloped circle. I added sparkly gem "buttons" and there is a panel of white card inside to write on.

And here are all four elves:

It was a perfect card to mass produce, as it didn't take much longer to make all four than one would have done.

I am sharing this with 52 Christmas Card Throwdown  where this week's challenge is a colour challenge, Lime Green and Real Red

and Christmas Cards All Year Round - Santa or Elf
