Shakin' with the Elves for Merry Monday

Good Merry Monday morning!

Linda chose our fun challenge this week

I found this cute elf at Art Impressions and thought he would be perfect for a shaker card.

and he even has a backside!


so you can see him coming and going.

I used some of my shaving cream marbled paper cardstock and colored the
little guy with Copic Markers.

I used my Fuse Tool to make the shaker bag.

I had lots of fun making this card!

Now I hope you'll have some fun finding an elf to put on your Christmas card.

The Design Team has some fantastic inspiration pieces
so go check it out at Merry Monday.

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

That is one adorable elf including its back side! What a fun card. I also like the tree -- I have the SU Evergreen set which is similar. Love how you put it with the marble background so think I am going to have to steal -- I mean CASE -- that idea (smiles).

What an adorable elf. The ears on him! I like that you can see him coming and going. This is a very clever design. I truly was thinking of digging around for an elf today, mainly because I'm curious if I have one.
