Santa’s Helper

Well, it’s that time of the year where Elf on the shelf becomes very popular. Yes, that is right my friends December is upon us and another year is almost over. Since I don’t have young children at home or an elf, I have decided to bring you an elf on a card for The Corrosive Challenge Blog.  

Today’s digital image Santa’s Helper is illustrated by LeAnnsWorld101 and can be purchase by clicking here or the link below. 

After printing 2 of these images on a light weight cardstock I colored one completely with Copic markers in non-traditional colors and just the hat on the other so I could use it to give some dimension. Once she was colored, I hand cut her out.

To create the background for my A2 size card I used some textured hot pink card stock I had on hand and embossed it with a Tim Holtz 3D embossing folder. I then took a small Gathered Twigs distressed ink cube and lightly ran it over the top to help bring out the embossing. 

To give my card dimension I cut a black frame out and popped it up on the base with faom tape.  I also used a small piece of foam tape under the bag on my image to pop it up. If you look closely, I used two different dimensions of foam tap on the elf’s hat to give it a 3D effect. To hide the white foam tape I carefully colored it with Copic and sharpie markers.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. Product used to create this fun card can be found below.
