The Christmas Elf Shoes
I am sure by now everyone has seen the Christmas Elf Shoes card. If you haven’t seen or made this card, it’s a fun and easy card to do. Actually this card was done at the Christmas card class that was held a couple of weeks ago.
Just a bit of housekeeping before I go on. “Happy Thanksgiving” to my US family and friends. I really hope you enjoy the day celebrating with your families and friends and of course that so well prepared turkey dinner.

A few details
The elf shoes are created from the Top Note die and cut in half length wise. The toes of his shoes are made using the 1-3/4″ Circle Punch and punching on an angle about 1/2 way down the front. To cut the other side so that you have a left and right shoe, turn the strip over and punch. Then cut the punched card stop in half to get two shoes. Take the 1/2 ” Circle punch and scoop out the top of the shoe and attach the leg.
To make the decoration at the top of his shoes, punch a flower from the 5 Petal Flower punch and trim away two petals ( do this twice) and attach to top of shoes.
All shoes, shoe trim and Old Olive panel is sponged with Crumb Cake to give interest and dimension.
The mat for the sentiment was punched from Cherry Cobbler card stock and cut in half lengthwise and attached to the sentiment so a bit of the mat peaked out from behind the top and bottom
