Sending Holiday Cheer

Hello!  This is Sukie and I'm sharing another project for my guest designer post today.  For my card, I used the Elf's Clothesline die set. When I saw the adorable clothes, I couldn't wait to create a project!
When I work with tiny die cut pieces I use a paint tray to keep everything in one place.  All of the pieces were inked on the edges for added dimension.  A glitter water brush was used to accent all of the red pieces for a sparkly finish.
I went with a neutral color palette for my card base and added a pop of red.  A hand cut border was lined along the top edge with some Diamond Stickles.
I inked up the white card stock with with 3 different inks to create the night sky.  To add additional details, I splattered the background with some white paint.  The tree pieces were were glued together to form the trees.
The next step was to adhere the snowy border to the bottom edge and stamp a simple sentiment on my card base. The sentiment is from the Scrappy Moms (retired) Merry Kissmas stamp set.
The clothesline was secured at an angle between the two trees.  The whimsy elf's clothes were arranged along the clothesline with the tiny clothespins.  
Here is the the sweet Elf's Clothesline die set available in the shop:
