This punch art elf is based on some of the images that have been floating around the internet, however, I thought he'd be cute holding onto a Christmas Letter to Santa!
I started with a base card of Bermuda Bay card stock and stamped the snowflake from Stampin' Up!'s Winter Post stamp set randomly across the top half. Along the bottom, I placed some Merry Moments Designer Paper in the red stripe pattern. I hid the seam with a strip of Basic Black card stock. The letter is made with the Scallop Envelope die, I folded it up and adhered the front side to the base card and stamped the snowflake around the edges. I used the Santa Postmark from Winter Post in Basic Black Classic Ink in the upper right corner. Merry Christmas is from the set, Christmas Greetings and stamped in Basic Black ink, too.
I made the Elf head with the Ornament Punch, the hat is also done with the Ornament Punch and then cut with the Wide Oval Punch. The pom pom on his hat is the scallop flower from BoHo Blossoms. His pointed ears are the star flower from BoHo Blossoms punch, too. His hands holding the Christmas letter are made with the Word Window Punch. The eyes are Bermuda Bay 1/4 circles with 1/8 Basic Black and highlighted with a White Gel Pen. I colored his cheeks with Blush Blossom marker and his mouth with a Basic Black marker. His nose is also a 1/4 circle from Blush Blossom.
I hope you enjoy my version of the Elf punch art! My classes enjoyed making him!
