Hello, and welcome to the Christmas In July blog hop with the Ellen Hutson team! I'm really not sure how it can be halfway to Christmas already (maybe this will be the year I finally complete a December Daily?!?) but before all the new Christmas sets are released, we thought it would be fun to share a Christmas card using one of the existing Essentials by Ellen sets.
You may have come from Adelina Starace, but if not feel free to start at the beginning withTherese Calvird.
The card I made is a very specific card, intended for a very special person ... the person with the very important job of "facilitating" Santa's visit every year! What a guy he is, right?!
From Bear Ware 2 I was able to use the Santa hat (a tad snug on his head, but still fits). The fake beard and mustache were already part of the Leading Gentleman's accessories, so that ended up working out just perfectly! I often like to include little details on a card, and this time I personalized his pocket (although now I'm thinking I need to add a "C" for Claus).
I tried emphasizing the belly (which has possibly been enhanced by a pillow) by using a much darker shade of red for a shadow on his pants. No boots for this guy, but I colored his shoes all black. And finally I added the tiny "merry christmas" from Bear Ware 2.
So there you have it; first Christmas card of the year ... done!
