Under Where?

As the weather starts to cool, the leaves falling from the trees, it’s hard not to think about the great Winter Festival that will be here in three moons time. As the rightful present distributing chap was now reinstated, talk around the Guild Hall turned to how this Winter Festival would differentiate from the previous year’s debacle. As I walked into the kitchens where numerous house elves were busy canning the latest harvest, I smiled whilst listening to them exchanging tales about the gift giving man they’d never seen.
“I heard that if you don’t believe in him and fail to leave out milk and cookies, you just get underwear,” Olga whispered to another house elf.
“I heard it was coal,” countered Mildred.
“No no...I know someone who failed to leave the required baked goods. It is definitely underwear,” Olga stated firmly, tightening the jar of peaches she was holding.

This was created for the Creative Card Crew’s “Christmas” challenge that is happening now! Create a Christmas project and you could win a $15 gift voucher to Scrapping Center! Merry early Christmas to you!
 
I started this card by stamping the Stampotique “Underwhere” and the “Oh..Tree” images and colouring them with my trusty ‘ol Prismacolor pencils. I then added some of the Stampotique ornaments, colouring them and cutting them out to glue to the tree.
After that I decided they looked a little plain so added some Glossy Accents to the heart on top the tree and the ornaments, earning me +392 glossy texturization exp points. The undies from the Unity “Change is a Good Thing” itty bitty, I stamped on patterned paper and cut out, tying some thread through to make a little bow. The sentiment is from the Unity “Naughty is the New Nice” set. The snowflakes are also Unity stamps, but I don’t know the name of the set, as it was a special that came without packaging.

On the inside I stamped more snowflakes, light enough that you can still write a message over top. The sentiments came from the Dylusions “Christmas Words” set and the My Pink Stamper “Christmas Wishes” set. 

Some more snowflakes adorned the front of the envelope to make everything all matchy match.

This Christmas card will hope for more than undies in the following challenges:
CHNC Challenge #142: Cut It Out (underwear was cut out as were the little ornaments)

As conspiracy theories drifted throughout the hall, one thing was certain - this year we wouldn’t have to plan a heist to save any slaves and could enjoy a nice relaxing Winter Festival in the realm...or could we….?
