"E" is for Elf (and a few other things!)

      OK, another completely out-of-alphabetical-order card done for the 30 Days of Holidays at Beccy's Place.  I did this one for the letter "E" and it includes:  Elf, Eisa (name of this elf), Twisted Easel card, Embossing, & Embellishments.

      The Eisa image was reversed before printing and then colored with ProMarkers and gel pens.  I cut the image with an oval die from QuicKutz.  I used a 'star' embossing folder on another oval, larger than the image but cut with another QuicKutz die.  I inked the edges of each oval before putting them together.

     I chose to make the easel part of this card on the 'wrong' side but it was done deliberately.  I'm sending this card to my DIL and I tease her because she's left-handed so this card opens from the left instead of the traditional right side.  :-D    

     After scoring the easel fold, I added scraps of ribbon, then layered on the matted image piece.  I cut the sentiment, added two more layers to it, and used it and one snowflake embellishment as the 'stop' for the easel.  The bow was tied by hand and I added the other two snowflake embellies to the card front.


     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

I love that you've created this card for your daughter-in-law NanaConnie, what a fabulous relationship the two of you have. The card looks wonderful, the snowflake embellishments and pretty ribbon bow are lovely.
