It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

Hello MoonFlower fans!  I have a sparkly project for you today using Gina Christmas Elf.

I colored Gina Christmas Elf with Copics and cut her out using my Silhouette Cameo.  I can't tell you how happy I am to have that machine!  I use it all the time and it has made cutting out my digital stamps so much easier.  From fussy cutting to the out of the box technique...I am in heaven!

As I was digging through my scrap stash, I saw this paper and knew it was perfect for this card.  I am not a fan of the traditional red and green for Christmas, but I do love red and aqua!  The gingerbread man brads I bought on clearance were the perfect embellishment to go with this paper.

The curlicue was made from a piece of craft wire that I had left over from another project.  It is a pretty heavy gauge and was a little tough to twist, but I got there in the end!  The die was cut from a piece of red glitter card stock.  Unfortunately, I am still finding red glitter in places I shouldn't have glitter!  Ah well...guess I am looking super festive. =)

You can find Gina Christmas Elf in the shop.  While you are there, have a look at all of the other amazing digi stamps Andreia has created.  So beautifully detailed!  You can get one stamp for free each month just by signing up for the newsletter.  Pop over to the website and enter your email address in the form at the bottom of the page.  Watch for an email confirming your subscription.  If you don't click that link, you won't be subscribed and won't receive MoonFlower goodies each month.  You can still get Gigi Poinsettia for free if you subscribe before December 15th.
