Holiday Characters (new EBE release!)

Hi there!



There's a new Essentials by Ellen release and we're celebrating with a fun blog hop! There is a lot of eye-candy along every stop of the hop, and there are prizes to be won too!

Holiday Characters (EBE new release!)


I used the new (and super adorable) Holiday Characters stamp set to create this card. It was designed by Julie Ebersole and so perfect for fun holiday cards and tags.

Holiday Characters (EBE new release!)

I started out by stamping and die-cutting all of the images. I then colored them in using copic markers. It was hard to tell in that first photo, but after I arranged all of the images, I created a shaker in front of them all. I didn't add too much of the chunky glitter but just enough so that when you shake it, it adds a sparkly dust to the background. Christmas magic!

I hid all of the foam tape around the edges with a white rectangle frame die (from Lawn Fawn) and then heat-embossed a sentiment (from the Mondo Holly stamp set) on a strip of black cardstock. I love a super-simple/unfussy sentiment when the rest of the card already has so much going already.

I hope you like it! Now, onto the fun stuff - PRIZES.
