I Hope Santa Spoils You Rotten

I’ve started making Christmas cards to post in the shop and to send out for the holidays. I fell in love with the Santa’s Elves stamp set  that My Favorite Things released last winter, but it was so popular that I couldn’t get it last year. So this year, I made sure that I had in my stamp collection.

The elves are simple to shade and color. I colored these in shades of red to keep it simple and quick. I had the Crimsom 6×6 paper pad from Recollections in my stash so I selected three different patterns. Colored up the image, added a few sequins, and voila! Three new Christmas cards! For the inside, I used a simple sentiment from Paper Smooches Christmas Sampler stamp set.
