A Jolly Elf Tent Topper

I love finding alternative ways to use images and this tent topper card was the perfect design to get creative! I used a greeting, "Have a Jolly Holiday" (D480) to make a unique background on the bashful blue layer with bashful blue ink. I then added a white strip of card stock with the same greeting in red. This was taped onto a red card base that measures 4.25 square. Then I stamped "Cutie Pie Merry Elf" (K1150) and punched out a portion of the image with a 1 3/4" circle punch. I used a cutting system to make the red mat. I then stamped "Mega Snowflake Circle" (H259) and punched it with Marvy's Mega scallop circle punch. I matted all the layers onto bashful blue card stock punched with Marvy's Giga scallop circle punch. I added dots to the Giga scallop with a bashful blue marker. Finally, I added the final touch with a red gingham bow. The elf was colored with Copic markers: Crimson (RV29), Pure Pink (RV23), Light Pink (RV21), Sepia (E37), Milky White (E51), Buttercup Yellow (Y21), Acid Yellow (Y08), Nile Green (G07), Ice Blue (B12), and for highlighting, Pale Blue Gray (B60).

Tent Topper cards fit into a standard A2 envelope. When attaching the topper, it is easiest to get the size correct by placing the card onto your envelope before adhering the topper.
