"Naughty & Nice" Top Note Elf Shoes Card With Matching Envelope

    Hi Stampers
    I have a really cute little card for you this week that is just perfect for your Christmas Card making this year. This "Naughty & Nice" Top Note Elf Shoes Card is pretty easy and quick to make, which is helpful if you have to sit there and make 50-100 cards to send out.  I know there are many different versions of the Top Note Elf Shoes Card out there,  but...I really wanted to make my version of this adorable Elf Shoe Card for you.

    I decided to use both my Season of Style Paperstack and my Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder for this card. I personally LOVE cards that have matching lined envelopes, so I made a matching envelope liner for this card too using a contrasting paper once again from the Season of Style Paperstack  and using the Stampin' Up Envelope Framelits Dies.

    Oh, and by the way....I have also made a YouTube Video for you on the complete making of this cute little card and envelope combo too.  I really hope you like it, and will find it useful for your Christmas Card planning.  Love if you could take a second and leave me a comment as to what you think...
