Body parts

Today I've got a Christmas card to share, one that came to from the inspiration of using "body parts" stamps (no digis). Having no such stamp and having used the legs of my Prima doll stamp in the previous challenge I felt I had to come up with something other than that.
So I used two Santa children stamps from Panduro, just using the heads, hiding the rest behind some Christmas gifts made with a Magnolia stamp.
I paper pieced their hats using paper scraps from Maja papers, the gifts were stamped onto kraft an I colored in some of the details using Promarkers and silver and white gel pens. The sentiment, also from Panduro, was stamped onto a die cut banner made with a Lawn Fan die.
 The lace was bought on a trip abroad, sequins and pearls from my stash.

This card is also for:
Twofers - #18 Body parts
Use Your Stuff - Use Scraps
Rudolph Days Challenge - April
Christmas Card Challenges - #21 Anything Goes

Such a clever, fun design, Pia, with beautiful paper piecing! I always forget to use papers like that! And it never fails to wow my eyes when other crafters utilize it! Note to Self - do some paper piecing in May.

Your Christmas card is not only sweet and fun, but those little "elves" are darling and look quite mischievous. Wonderful card design! hugs, de
