Christmas Lights

Hi everyone!  Today's 52 Christmas Card Throwdown blog challenge is a theme challenge and the theme is Christmas lights.  I had a few different ideas in mind for this challenge, but then I remembered an old Stampin' Up! stamp set that I have with the little elf and his lights.  This set is almost 20 years old!

I stamped the images and colored them with my Stampin' Up! markers.  Two of the elves were stamped, colored, and cut out.  My real red and gumball green card stock layers are dry embossed using my square lattice embossing folder.  Then I used the finishing edgelits for the real red border and my main image was cut using the apothecary accents framelits.

There are dimensionals under the main image layer as well as the two cut out elves.

Thanks everyone for stopping by.   As some of you may know I am in the process of starting my own challenge blog, ABC Challenges and my very first challenge will be this Monday so I hope you'll stop by and play along!
