Hey Everyone! Ken here with Ken's Kreations.
Well I am starting to feel back to normal after my gallbladder surgery, so now I can get back to my passion....CRAFTING!! Well my favorite time of the year is Christmas and one of my yearly traditions is to watch the movie "Elf". This movie was the inspiration behind this Christmas Card:
For this card I used the Cricut Explore. I started with the card base which I found on the Christmas Card Cartridge. I brought the card with the tree on it into deign space and ungrouped it. I deleted the tree so I just had the card base and sentiment rectangle left. I inked the edge of the top layer of the card with Bamboo Pigment Ink. In the center of the card I used the Angry Elf SVG file from PPBN Designs. I used the Print Then Cut feature in Design Space with my Cricut Explore and my Epson Artisan 1430. I raised the elf in the center of the card using Foam Tape. On each side of the elf I wanted to hang some ornaments and found the perfect border on the Holiday Cakes Cartridge. To add a little bling to the border I used my I-Rock Heat Setter and green/red gems. I could now turn my focus to the sentiment, which is one of my favorite quotes form the elf movie...." He's An Angry Elf"
I used the font off the Holiday Frames & Tags Cartridge. I used the writing feature on the Cricut Explore. I used the American Crafts Chalk Markers on the dark red sentiment backing. Now these pens fit snugly in the circuit explore or you can use the Chomas Pen Holder for a better fit. Here is a video on the Chomas Pen Holder. On each end of the sentiment I wrapped Red Baker's Twine and finished it off with a basic red button.
