Elephant Christmas

Hi! Today I show you a card made with new Sparkle N Sprinkel Elephant Christmas Tree Digital Stamp Set 802.

Best part about digital stamps is that you can make them as big or small you need. I sized my elephant to fit behind the window. Image is colored with markers. I added a layer of glue with Sakura Glue Pen to his hat trim and covered it with Crystal Ice glitter. Same glue was added to the ornaments on the tree. Stars was covered with Aztec Gold glitter and some parts of the bigger baubles with Crystal Ice glitter. All Tree Ornaments was covered after glittering with Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops to give them a glass effect.

To make the window frame I used a piece of white textured cardstock and cut a square holes with one of the dies from Nellie Snellen Photo Frames set. Top part of the window is partially cut with largest die from Spellbinders Labels Thirty-Six set. I covered window frame with Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint. Apparently some speckles of Gray Nuance water-soluble powder was picked up in that process... I like it! Happy accident. Speckles of gray in crackled frame looks very nice. Behind the frame I adhered a piece of Acetate. To make it look like it has been snowed, I added Dimensional Glue to different places on the window and sprinkled Bridal glitter on top.

I found this glittered poinsettia flower and holly branch from my leftover basket. To make them I covered piece of paper with 2 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape. Branch is cut with Creative Expressions Holly Sprays die and flower with same company die - Classic Poinsettia. Branches are covered with Lator Gator and flower with Gypsy Red glitters. Same red glitter was adhered with Dimensional Glue to the branches. Flower center was made with Dimensional Glue and Aztec Gold glitter.

Background was so much fun to make. I took a piece of watercolor cardstock, placed Want2Scrap Bricks Stencil on top and used White Dreamweaver Embossing Paste to make the brick pattern. After removing the stencil I covered embossing paste with Bronze Rose Embossing Powder. I let the paste dry and used the heat tool to melt the embossing powder. Apparently the paste wasn't completely dry, it started to bubble up in some places. I'm ok with it. Actually it gives more texture to the bricks. Space between the bricks was colored with Gray Nuance water-soluble powder. The wall was made before the window. Next time I try to remember to clean up the craft mat a bit better after using Nuance powders :)

Edges of the matting layer are covered with 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and Aztec Gold glitter.
