I hope you've enjoyed a great Christmas.
We had another great day yesterday with all our family over. It was a very relaxing fun day, which, like Christmas Day, all went far too quickly!
After we'd eaten we played Charades and UNO.
Because the age range went from grandchildren to grandparents, there were songs and films from the younger ones that the older ones didn't recognise and visa versa.
But that added to the fun!
This morning I uploaded a video to show how I made this great card!
This is the link: Elf Pop Up Slider Card.
I made this video on Christmas Eve when I was feeling very Christmassy.
The elf images I had were leftovers from the Magic Elf Card video I made, that gave me so much grief!
Rather than waste them I decided to use them for this card.
So that's my first two Christmas cards made for next year!
Although I made this as a Christmas card, it'll be really easy to change the image to make it a birthday card, or anniversary card, any occasion at all really.
I showed the card to my two grandchildren (aged 13 and 11 years) and they were both totally bowled over by it.
I think this style of card will be really appreciated by children of all ages............. ...........and adults, too!
The two main colours I've used here are Real Red and Pear Pizzazz.
The Elf is from the Christmas Cuties Stamp Set and the bells are from the Cozy Christmas Stamp set.
The two sentiments are from the Reason For The Season Stamp Set.
There aren't many retired products I use in my projects - the two exceptions are ribbons and Paper Piercing Packs.
I find that each roll of ribbon has so much ribbon on the reel, I can't ever use it all before it retires, especially when I try to have some ribbon for each of the colours available.
I keep the Paper Piercing Packs because I love the effect you can achieve with these and it's relatively easy to do it freehand in the absence of the templates.
Today I'll be preparing the new Spring catalogues and the Sale-a-bration catalogues to be posted to all my customers.
If you're in the EU, don't have a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and would like copies of the new catalogues, please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
