Christmas!? Oh the Humanatee!!

Tonight as I was nestled deep within a pile of soft furs reading a novel, I overheard some of the house gnomes talking about the upcoming Winter Festival. Apparently there is a remote clan of house gnomes living across the Pearlescent Sea who believe that it is not a rotund human who distributes gifts, rather a large manatee goes home to home bringing presents. I questioned the logic in this, as manatees are aquatic creatures and would have trouble moving around on land.

This card was created for the Creative Card Crew “Stripes” challenge that is happening now. Make a project and include some stripes for a chance to win a prize from our sponsors!

I started this card by colouring the QKR Stampede “Santa Manatee” image using Prismacolour pencils. I then added some sparkles to his hat using Ice Stickles.
I stamped the sentiment using the Lawn Fawn “Smitty’s ABC’s” set, earning me +267 wordsmith XP points, which will level up my charisma skill. A scattering of buttons and brads finished off the front of the card.

On the inside I stamped the two sentiments and the manatee image using some Unity stamps to create the punny sentiment. I realized after that I had used "Christmas" on both the front and the inside of the card, and generally try to not do that, but it was too late to change it. *insert sad face*

The envelope was stamped with a bunch of CTMH stamps to make it all puuurty.

This card will swim into the following challenges:

Olga, one of the house gnomes, said that the believers of the Christmas Manatee explained the logical flaws away with just “Christmas magic”. I suppose it’s really not all that different than flying reindeer.
