"X" is for XXX Christmas And Introducing "Holly Jolly" the Grumpy the Christmas Elf

Whooo Hoo! Today is the day! It's "X" is for XXX Christmas over at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers.

I think the entire design team WAITS for what is now our annual "Naughty Christmas" challenge, and I am no exception.  This year I am introducing "Holly Jolly" the Grumpy Christmas Elf, a new digital stamp "card character" to pair up with Dudley the Sock Monkey!

He is a wonderful digital stamp created by Christine Grove and down-loadable from Buddly Crafts where it just so happens they are having a 2 for 1 sale on all their Christmas digis.  Of course I couldn't just make one card with this grumpy elf face, so I made six cards!

And I wanted to share how quickly and easily you can create some pretty awesome cards by printing out six or more digital images, coloring or painting them all at once and then mounting them on some pretty simple backgrounds.

Using Pre-printed Christmas papers that match the image or the quote...

Using Embossing folders on plain white cardstock so your image and the quote are the focal points...


Keeping the embellishing simple with ink and Rangers Stickles and a few gems...

You can have a lot of lovely, original, hand-made cards finished up quite quickly to send to those really special people in your life.

So I hope you enjoyed my new addition to my Card Character family... I can see many, many more interesting words of grumpy wisdom in his future... And don't forget to pop on over to the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers to see what Naughty-ness my design teammates have created for this years NAUGHTY CHRISTMAS!
