Christmas in July

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge #187
is Christmas in July.
I got this cute Balancing Elf stamp last year...
it was fun to ink it up again.
I knew that I wanted to make him on a long narrow shape with a fancy top...
however everything I wanted to use was either too big or too small... so
I ended up making a template out of punched circles and tracing it and hand
cutting it out.
Here's what I used:
Thanks for stopping by...
Please leave a comment before you go!
till next time,


  1. That is a great idea to cut him out like that and the circles for the top is brilliant! Love your card and thanks for playing along with us at Kraftin Kimmies!

  2. This is a lovely card, so creatively done. I love how his ear and the end of his hat extend beyond the paper!! Great card, thank so much for playing along with us at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.

  3. Great card!! It's is one of my favourite KKS Christmas stamps. And what a great idea of creating your own template, very smart! Thanks for playing along with this weeks KKS challenge. Good luck!
