Toy Shopping Elf

I decided to make another Christmas card to add to my stash for the holidays. Peachy Keen Stamps had a great sketch for their current challenge and I couldn't resist giving it my own spin.

The stamp is Snickerdoodle Gift Elf from Peachy Keen Stamps. I added some white flower soft to his clothes for some fun trim and I sewed a jingle bell on to his hat.

The toy shop is actually the candy store cut from the My Community Cricut cartridge. I added a few toys from the B is for Boys and the Everyday Paper Dolls Cricut cartridges to display in the store windows. I finished the whole thing off by adding snow tex on the ground.

Card Details:

Elf: Snickerdoodle Gift Elf from Peachy Keen Stamps

Boat: B is for Boy Cricut cart cut at 1 inch

Ring Stack Toy: B is for Boy Cricut cart cut at 1 inch

Guitar: Everyday Paper Dolls Cricut cart cut at 2 inches on real dial size

Word Toys: Base Camp Cricut cart cut at .75 inches

Copics: E00, E21, E43, E35, E37, B21, B34, B37, R24, R20, R27, R29, YG03, YG11, G05, G07
