I'll be there with bells on

I did a card like this last year and loved it so much I revamped a little this year to send to some friends.  This little Paper Pretties "Emalina Elf" image always makes me smile.  I can't remember where I got these brass bell brads (that really jingle), but I sure wish I could find some more.  I also used a Stampin' Up window punch and a Memory Box Christmas ornament die.

A2, string, stitching, copics, stickles, ribbon and used Silhouette machine to cut all the layers


  1. Soooo cute! It made me smile too!

  2. Darling, so cute. I don't have that image. I love the ornaments and the shelf. Great work as always. Great coloring and stitching. I don't do that enough, I love the look.

  3. Cely, this is so cute! Just love the elf image. Great job with the ornament embellishments. So cute!

  4. You found bell brads, wow! Love your colouring and stitching!

  5. Excellent sentiment and perfect touch adding bells to his shoes. I also really like how he's framed/cut out along with the mats. Super cute!

  6. How fun and fabulous, Cely. Image is really precious. Love your wonderful coloring and all the fabulous details you added. You are so right about the smiles!

  7. ooooh love that elf, isn't he adorable and those brads are just too wonderful. Lovely fun card!

  8. Emalina has to be one of my favorite elf images ever. You've colored her so marvelously, Cely, and I do love hte bells on her shoes. LOL Too much fun.

  9. Love it, love it, love it, love it, love it! Hey.....do you think I might just love it?! lol!

    How did you get your layers using the Stampin' Up Word Window Punch? I'd like to layer mine like that.

  11. For Jennifer,
    I made an svg and/or studio file and cut with my silhouette machine. Before that, I used my Cricut Expression machine. I cut a whole bunch out in different colors so they are ready whenever I need them. Black and dark green are the shadows that I use the most.
