Stampin’ Up! Don’t Stop Believin’ Adorable Elf Christmas Card

I am in love with the adorable Elf in the Don’t Stop Believin’ stamp set. I had some retired All is Bright Designer Series Paper that I wanted to use with my Stampin’ Up! Don’t Stop Believing Elf. The card I came up with fit just right for the Paper Players Sketch Challenge PP514

Paper Players Sketch PP514

Here is how I made this card:

  • Card Base: 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ Scored at 4 1/4″ Real Red
  • Next Layer: 3 pieces of the green side of DSP cut4″ x1 1/2″
  • Next Layer: 3 pieces of DSP bulb side cut 3 3/4″ x 1 1/4″
  • Whisper White scrap 3 1/4″ x 2 1/2″
  • Rectangle: Green scrap 3 1/2″x1″
  • Whisper Wight 2 1/2″ x 1/2 “for sentiment
  • Inside: 4″ x 5 1/4″


  1. Stamp the Elf from Don’t Stop Believin’. I then colored the image using Stampin’ Up! water color pencils (Garden Green, Real Red, Flirty Flamingo, Basic Gray) and then fussy cut out.
  2. Stamp sentiment on Whisper Wight in Garden Green. I sponged the edges in Garden Green ink.


  • Adhere your 3 3 1/4″ x 2 1/2″ DSP to the green 4″x1/2″ DSP
  • Adhere your 3 strips to your Real Red card base
  • Adhere your stamped sentiment to your Garden Green 3 1/2″ x 1″
  • Adhere to bottom center of card
  • Adhere your Elf with Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Adhere you inside panel
