Hats for Christmas

This mini slimline card is for two challenges: Freshly Made Sketches #509, and this months HLS October 2021 Anything Goes With Dies.

FMS#509 Sketch calls for a slim line card, however I didn't go that direction.  I wanted more color on this card so I trimmed down an A6 to accommodate the height of the die, but kept the width so I could add the red and black edges. 

The hats are felt with a bit of Christmas stenciling behind them. The hats were a bear to pull together; the elf hat kept breaking off on the narrow tip each time it was pulled from the die.  Then, even using Multi Medium Matte glue, the felt and add-on bits required multiple applications to hold the pieces together.  

Regardless, this one did turn out just like I planned and will go to a very good friend for Christmas.  

A lot of supplies went into this one; they are listed at the bottom.
