Jolly Elf
by Leigh

I'm back today to share the Christmas card I made for my nephew who was my inspiration for this Oddleigh character, Oddleigh Lizard Boy Elf and Snowflake set.  I just adore this fun lil guy, he's so cute and loves to catch snowflakes on his tongue.  He's now on FLASH SALE for 25% off until midnight tonight pacific time🎅🏻

I printed him out on Crafter's Companion Spectrum Noir premium smooth white cardstock and fussy cut him out without leaving a white border.  Then layered onto black cardstock and fussy cut out again this time leaving a narrow black border.

 I coloured him with Copics...colour list to come!
Skin -
Hat and eyes -
Bell - Y13, 15 and 17
Jersey and shoes -
Fur - N0 and N2
Pants -
Hair, scarf, tongue -
Highlights - White Dylusions paint pen

The snowflake background was made with the 3 snowflakes that come in this Oddleigh set and printed out onto cardstock I coloured with Nuance powders.  Clear/ultraviolet glitter glue was applied to to all the snowflakes.  I fussy cut out 3 more snowflakes, painted them white and applied the same glitter glue.  The lower half of the card is a sheet of decorative paper by DCWV.

I added DecoArt Snow all around the edges of the panel and gave the Elf a pile of snow to stand on.  The panel was then layered onto black cardstock then on a folded card made from white cardstock.  The Elf was adhered in place with pop dots and I added lots of Diamond Stickles Glitter glue sparkle throughout the image and dots to the background.  I completed the card with snowflake buttons and of course he had to have one sitting on his tongue.  How cute is he!
