Little Elf Mim

Hello, my friends! Here is a card that I made using an adorable image from Mo's Digital Pencil.


Yes, another holiday elf! You know I adore them and this one is too cute! I also decided that you don't have to use the dies up right or horizontal to make it fun. =)


The image is called Little Elf Mim and she is printed on Papertrey Ink's Stamper's Select White cardstock, cut and embossed using a Petite Ovals Small die then colored with Copic markers. The piece is matted with a piece of patterned paper cut using a Petite Ovals Large die before I stitched the layers together. I then inked the image with Antique Linen and Tea Dye distress inks.  The sentiment piece is made the same way except that it is not stitched. I also added some Sugar Sparkly Fluff to the trims of her outfit.


The patterned paper is from Wonder 6x6 Bundle by Authentique. I used WOJ's Nested Flowers II die to make the flower and all paper edges are inked with Tea Dye distress ink. The sentiment is from Very Vintage Christmas set by Waltzingmouse Stamps.

That's it for now. For more inspirations using images from Mo's Digital Pencil, please visit Mo's Dream Team Blog.





Have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by!
