Cathy's WTUI challenge today is to use a gift or package. This due had been on my desk since December, time to use it. Sadly I only had 3 sheets of the DP so I couldn't make my usual batch of four cards. I loved the lucky chance that left an extra gift with bow right at the top of the stack the elf is carrying. And what a great way of using very busy paper that is normally way out of my comfort zone.
Tim Holtz Santa‚e(TM)s Helper, Helz Cuppleditch papers. Stitched square matted onto red, then a white base. Torn white Bazzill for the snow.

What an awesome take on the gift challenge, Sabrina! I love how you used a silhouette of an elf, making the eye focus on the presents and the background instead - very clever! I also like how it just happened that the third present is on top of the elf's pile....grounding with a torn piece of white cs as snow is simple but very effective!

What a fun Christmas card! That cute little elf with his pointy shoes carrying the beautifully bedecked gifts, and with the end of his hat gracing the snowy ground- a perfectly charming Christmas scene.

Your dp doesn't look busy here...it looks perfect. Loving the torn white paper for the snow. That elf is adorable and the black was a perfect choice. It's such a cute card, I can see why you are you wished you could make more. Adorable.
