Elf Crossing Ahead

Since it's Easy Christmas Week over at SP&Co, I have another card to share with you that demonstrates a new technique using artist's chalk. I've had this small Sizzix embossing folder in my stash for a while. I embossed the elf onto a small piece of Cryogen White cardstock and then applied chalk to it with a Q-tip. It's secured to the front with dimensionals.



For the background, I alternated various lengths of green and red washi tape and added white gel pen stitch lines along the red perimeter. The "North Pole" sentiment is from the SP&Co Penguin Skating stamp set - Tina Wenke Collection which also coordinates with the Stitched Journaling Shape and Arrows Die Tools. The sentiment is stamped in SU Real Red to coordinate with the cardstock layers.

Here's another close-up:
