ELF Christmas Tree


I'm so excited to share that I made it to Round 2 of the CAS Winter Design Team Search.

This time our challenge was to take inspiration from one of these movies
  • A Christmas Story
  • Elf 
  • The Nightmare Before Christmas
We were to choose a sketch and a movie. I choose to go with the movie ELF. I took my inspiration from both the sketch and the original movie poster.

This is the movie poster.
And this is the sketch. Below is my interpretation.

Paper: : Me & My Big Ideas AKLM-Holiday, Inky Antics Green Honeycomb Paper Pad  
Accessories: CM Small Square Shapemaker, HoneyBee Party Stencil Set, Offray Stylish Accents 2 Loop Bow w/ Pearl

Wish me good luck! I need it.

Oh and for my fellow Brown Coats.  I know I used an Angel on top of my tree but I'm gonna go with the Michonne, from the Walking Dead's, theory of removing the arms and mouth of the walkers. If they don't have them then they can't hurt you, even though it is their nature to. OK maybe that's a little more complex then how she might explain it. But you know what I mean.

So in this case the Angel may or may not being a Weeping Angel but since it has no arms or face that I can see I feel safe. Trust me those Weeping Angels terrify me. Them and The Silence are probably the most terrifying Doctor Who creatures. IMO

Happy Crafting,


  1. The weeping angels are the scariest! Man they creep me out!

  2. Weeping angels are scary! lol Great card and take on your ELF inspiration. I love that movie! :)

  3. This came out gorgeous! I love how you used the inspiration. I need to start watching the Walking Dead. I have seen a few minutes of a few episodes but I want to start from the beginning.
