Crafty Elves Countdown to Christmas - May 2023 Edition

Merry Christmas!  JK!  It's not Christmas, but it is the 25th of the the month and time for the Crafty Elves to share the Christmas cards we made this month!  I've got one card here and then you can head on over to my fellow Crafty Elves places, Debra, Michael, Misty and we have a special guest joining us this month, AJ!

I'm away this week so I only had time to make one card this month!  I made a quick design using some products from Uniko and papers from my latest Your Paper Insider box!

I used the Uniko Christmas Folk Snowflake Stencil for my background with some Transfer Gel Duo and I applied some gold foil while it was still tacky, but I didn't want a solid foil so I let the gel sit a little bit longer and added the foil lightly with just pressure from my hand.  Then that awesome Sparkling Snowflake from that gorgeous gold paper popped up on the top and a sentiment from Uniko's Season of Beauty stamp set embossed in gold on more of the beautiful Shimmery blue cardstock.

That's me for today!  AND I have a picked a winner from last month's post.  I'm giving away a pack of new and gently used stamps and dies from my stash and I picked one winner from my posts here and on Instagram!  Maria Patrick is the winner!  I'll announce it over on Instagram too.

Thanks so much to everyone for all of the love!  

Now don't forget to visit my fellow elves to see what they have for you today!
