Paper Crafting World's Elf on a Shelf

My elf came off the shelf and is just popping in to say, Merry Christmas! I used the Paper Crafting World's Elf on the Shelf Boy Cut File, for this easy Christmas card. I know it is almost Christmas but this is easy enough to make in a rush.

I cut him out, inked the edges with Dew Drops ink pads and assembled him. I cut a circle with a sizzix scallop circle die and layered that over red dot scrapbook paper. I added that over a plaid piece of scrapbook paper and adhered it to a red A2 card.

To finish the card off, add embellishments you have in your stash. I had some red faux enamel dots I used as berries (I also used a yellow dot for a button) and hand cut some green paper for some holly leaves. I added them in the corners and a baby bow under the banner. The baby bow is from Paper Smooches. If you don't have a bow die, use ribbon to tie a bow and glue on with glue dots, add a banner stamped with your favorite holiday greeting and you are done! (You can use a die to cut the banner, a cut file of a banner or free hand one.)

I hope you enjoyed this easy Christmas card. I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas and hope you check back in the new year for more fun and easy projects!
