Neat & Tangled October Release {Elves at Work}

Welcome to another day of release goodies from Neat & TangledYou are going to be so inspired by today's set......I can hardly stand it!  The holidays around my house are always so special as my kids still BELIEVE.  I don't know when this will change or if they already suspect but I'm hoping it lasts a few more years.  So one of their favorite holiday movies to watch is Elf.  Yes, it's totally funny and I love it!  So can you guess what today's set is all about??

When I first saw this set, I immediately had some ideas but the one I kept going back to perfect was some postcards.  If you follow my blog, then you know that I make mini cards to put in my kids' mailboxes (that I decorated years ago) and place them at their seat at the table on the morning of the holiday.  They LOVE this and look forward to the holidays (not just Christmas).

So here I've used the new Elves at Work stamp set.  O. M. G.  How stinkin' cute are these elves???  Danielle included a girl AND a boy elf!  Perfect for my postcards.  I started by making a frame with the Stitched Mats: Rectangles dies.  Stamping a couple of sneak peak images here, I paired them with the girl elf and the boy elf.

I've colored my Elves with various Copics and fussy cut them out.  Yep.....I did that.  :)  I applied some white Enamel Accents to the tops of the hat and shoes.  Gives it just a bit of dimension.  Here is a photo of both postcards together.

Now, I couldn't let the inside go undone so I stamped another sneak peek image that coordinated with my postcard perfectly!!
