Alpine Carolers with Elena!

Hi there! Elena here, and I have one last Alpine Carolers project to share for this release. I just want to thank the Mama Elephant girls, and all of the Ele-fans for making this an exciting past month for me!

Let's dive right in!

I created a couple's Christmas card, and borrowed elements from Arctic Penguins to do it: the hat on the mister and the cup of steaming cocoa for the missus.

Once I had everything stamped the way I wanted, I masked them both (and their accessories, and a snowy ground for them to stand on) and sponged on a light brown sky. I love how it makes the carolers stand out.

Before removing the masks, I grabbed another new set - Basic Borders - and used the polka dot strip to mimic a snowfall. It's very subtle, and shows unevenly on the card, so perfect for a snowy sky.

The wavy border from Tags a lot was perfect for stamping a nonchalant "fa la la" greeting. I accented it on either edge with a swipe of a green marker. It looks so much more festive that way!

To finish things off, I cut my panel with the Femme Frames rectangle die, and then cut into it again with the new Borderlines Trio edge die. I slipped in some candy cane patterned paper to make up the difference. I love the stitched border all the way around!

I hope you like what I've created! Thanks for stopping by!
