Now if you arrived from the awesome Elaine then your on the right track, if not you need to start at the beginning HERE. Here's the full list in case you get lost.
Tracy - you are here
I have chosen to use the Crackered Elf and they are available today from Make It Crafty and don't forget you'll also get 15% off through to Sunday......
Aren't they just so mischievious...... And here's my overall card...........
Just look at these two mischievious Elfs. I have coloured them with copics and also added a Make It Crafty lasercut chipboard swirly corner, which I inked up using a distress ink and clear embossing powder. Just love these embellishments. The papers are Websters, just love them. I have also used a stempleglede swirly grunge stamp inked onto acetate and added the sentiment in the centre. The Poinsetta is Marianne Design Creatables Poinsettia Serrated LR0121 and I have also used the Branch from Marianne D Starry Garland LR0126
Now it wouldn't be a birthday without a birthday card, right. So here's the card that's on the way to Zoe, but will be a tad late, sorry hun.
I've also used some more lasercut chipboard on this card and inked them up using Vintage Photo distress ink, but I'll list the full ingredients of this card tomorrow in my Crafts and Me post as I don't want to keep you longer than necessary.
Now onto the Candy and be sure to visit all of the DT's blogs and Candy is everywhere. Be sure to add a link to your blog in Mr Linky, but you do not need a blog to participate, just email me and I will add you in. Please also leave a comment, just in case Mr Linky isn't reliable.
