A Touch of Christmas - Week 1

After working non-stop down to the day before Christmas to get cards done for the holiday, I knew that I wanted to do things differently for 2010. I was so happy to find that Danni was thinking the same way!

For the upcoming year we will be making a Christmas card, gift tags, or other Christmas project to share with you each Thursday for 'A Touch of Christmas'. Please be sure to visit Danni to see what lovely Christmas creation she has shared on her blog today. You can visit her blog: HERE

For this week's project I decided on making a gift tag, and since I was making one I decided it would be a great idea to make two! This little elf is from a Nikki Sivils set that I hadn't gotten a chance to use.



What I used:
Stamps: Elf from Nikki Sivils, words/sentiments are AmyR from C. C. Designs
Paper: DP by S. E. I.
Ink: stamped with Momento, colored with Copic Sketch, edged with Distressed Ink by Tim Holtz/Ranger
Accents: Polar White Flower Soft, dies cuts with Nestabilites by Spellbinder, red ribbon by Offray

Thanks so much for stopping by!

very cute! Great idea to start working now! Any you're right when you make one you might as well make as many as you can while you have the supplies out.
