Today was a rather uneventful day at the Guild Hall. The direwolves were quiet and not a hellhound was stirring. I decided to take the time to clean the crafting chambers. That is the one room I do not allow the house gnomes to clean as I tend to keep everything and wouldn't want them throwing any of my precious bits in the rubbish. As the afternoon wore on, I came to realize that I had accumulated quite the hoard of paper scraps. Instead of throwing them away, I decided to take a respite from the tiresome chores and make a card.
I started by stamping the postcard from Lawn Fawn's "You've Got Mail" set. Then I used my Prismacolors to color up that cute digi from Meljen's Designs. I used "Twig & Berry - Postmarks" by Kaisercraft to stamp the postmarks on the postcard. The sentiment was stamped with the "Christmas Wishes" set by My Pink Stamper. I randomly layered some scraps of Christmas paper and adhered them down. Slapped some buttons on the side and called 'er a day.
I used some more of those postmark stamps on the inside and finished off the sentiment started on the front using the "Christmas Words" Dylusions stamp set.
Made a little matching envelope for this postal elf. This is actually a pretty small card - closed it measures 3.5" x 6.25".
I will be entering this into the following challenges:
Meljen's Design Team Challenge #127: Scrap It
Tammy's Scrapin Corner Challenge #28: Anything Goes
Try it on Tuesday: Anything Goes September Challenge
Paper Playtime Challenge #84: Punches & A Sentiment
It feels good to use some of those scraps on an actual card rather than watching the pile swell with no end in site. I didn't get much actual cleaning done...but did manage to lose -92 hoarder exp points - trust me...that's a good thing. That is one attribute I need to go down a level!
