Mooning Elf

Hi everyone! My husband REALLY wanted me to make a card to send his parents for Christmas using this image after I showed him the "An Elf-ing Christmas Card" my friend Lynn made. I heard him on the phone the other night telling his mom the card we are sending them will remind her of Uncle Ronnie's emails. I won't go there but let's just say she won't be surprised either (hee hee)! The image featured on today's card is the Mooning Elf digital stamp by Bonibleaux Designs. The fun verse on the inside of the card though is a CASE from my friend Lynn's card.

My card base is Bravo Burgundy layered with White Cardstock then Noel Patterned Paper. The shadow layer is the back side of the Noel Patterned Paper layered on Bravo Burgundy. The image was printed on White Cardstock and colored in using copic markers. To embellish the card I added two pewter spiral clips and a small pewter brad in each corner of the shadow layer.

Here is the verse on the inside of the card.

I thought while I was sharing I'd show you the labels I made using my watermark for the back of my cards. To create the labels I copied and pasted the black watermark into a word document label template that fits 30 labels per page. Isn't this just fabulous!!!

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!

What can I say here - except maybe you already know how much I LOVE it! Really like the colors you used on this too.
Glad you liked my card enough to use the image and sentiment too! Thanks for the "shout out".
There's just something about that image that sums up a lot of things, you know! LOL! Know your in-laws are going to love it.
