Card For Mom, Little Elf Finn, Kit, and Mim from Mo Manning

  The card I have to share with you today is this years Christmas card I made for my folks.  My mom is a crafty lady so I try to do something that would impress even her.  She introduced me to crafting and showed me my first alcohol markers too.  I am blessed with the wisest, most loving, and generous parents a girl could wish for!

  The Colouring Crazy Challenge theme for Graph'it this time is Festive Wishes and I thought this card is perfectly festive.  Come over and join our challenge HERE, you could win some of these fabulous markers to play with!!

These are three different stamps from Mo's Digital Pencil, Little Elf Finn, Little Elf Kit, and Little Elf Mim.  You can find them HERE.

I printed these in the order I wanted them and then printed each one again so I could paper piece them to hang off the edges of the background.  I used a masking liquid before coloring them with my Graph'it markers. I embossed the snowflakes onto the background first and then sponge inked in grey and used some Tattered Angels shimmer sprays, Boardwalk and Snow Queen.

For the star and ornaments, I shaded them first with my markers and then gave them a coat of Stickles and two coats of Glossy Accents.  The pic really doesn't do them justice.  Here is a pic of the inside just for fun...

These papers are some my mom got me last year, they are Recollections.  I know she loves them because she bought herself the same stack so I thought they would be great for her card.

Here is a list of the Graph'it Color Combos used: 
skin: 4125, 4115, 4170, 3120/ 4145, 4135
Hair: 1210, 1230, 1270
red: 5110, 5120, 5140, 5170
green: 8110, 8120, 8280, 8290
grey: 9401, 9402, 9403, 9405
"white" stippling: 9400, 9401
ornaments: 9500, 9501, 9502
