Here's the card I created for today's blog hop. Sometimes I feel that Santa gets all the credit and the "little guys" are often overlooked. So, I decided to make his important helpers front & center of this holiday card!

I Am Roses Supplies Used

Other Supplies Used
Big Shot (Sizzix)
Maltese Lace Frame Set (Sharon Callis Craft Designs)
Honey Silk Frame Set (Sharon Callis Craft Designs)
VersaFine Onyx Black Ink (Tsukineko/ Imagine Crafts)
Hello Deerie Stamp Set (Darcie's)
140 lb Mixed Media Paper
Watercolor Pencils (Derwent Academy)
Procolor Pencils (Derwent)
Kraft Cardstock (Recollections)
Green Cardstock (DCWV)
Foam Adhesive
Patterned Paper (Echo Park)
Sprinkletz- Very Cherry (Buttons Galore)

I started with a 5.5" square card base then I layered it with a 5 5/8" x 5 5/8" piece of green cardstock.

I used the outer frame die of the Maltese Lace Die set to cut my poinsettia paper and adhered all the layers together with my Xyron Mega Runner.

Then, I used the larger of the Maltese Frames to die-cut kraft cardstock.

I also die-cut mixed media paper using the inner ornate oval frame from Honey Silk Lace set.

At first, I stamped my reindeer image (from the Darcies Hello Deerie set) into the white oval frame die-cut but then I realized I also wanted to fit the little elf on there and there simply wasn't enough room. So, after I finished coloring him, I fussy cut him out with scissors.

Then I stamped my elf onto more mixed media paper.

I used an assortment of Derwent Academy watercolor and Derwent Procolor markers to color in both images and the little banner.

And hand cut all the images.

I die-cut another oval frame out of white cardstock and attached both the Kraft cardstock frame and the white oval frame onto my card base.

I glued 2 Olive Green May Roses to anchor my corners. These roses are bold in color and size.
Then I surrounded the large May Rose with White Cherry Blossoms & Red Arabian Jasmine Roses.

Then, I added adhesive foam behind my reindeer and elf and attached them to the center of my card.

I added tiny little peppermint accents around the corners opposite to my flowers for a bit of balance.

And here is my finished card...

I thought these two were absolutely adorable... look they're even holding hands! How cute is that?!

I hope you enjoyed my card for today's blog hop and that it inspires you to create some wonderful cards this holiday season!
