Hello there, I’ve been playing with things I have had for absolutely ages, ready for the new challenge which has begun at The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge.
There isn’t a particular theme – anything Christmas related is absolutely fine by us, including boxes, tags, cards, scrapbook pages -= as long as it’s Christmas – you’re good to go,
Here is my DT card:
It looks fairly straight-forward doesn’t it? Well – there are hidden gems for this guys……….
I started by die-cutting the elements from MFT ‘Christmas Crew Santa‘ out of shiny red, white glitter, silver glitter, black glitter, and gold card stock, then adhering them to a blush card which I had cut to size – as per MFT web-site.
Once I had stuck most of my elements down – I had a sudden thought about his eyes………..so I went and searched for my google eye stuff, decided which size to go for – and there we are.
Wait – I haven’t finished yet……………I then decided I wanted him to move on the card to make the eyes go all jiggy………..so I added an action wobbler to the back of him:
So I can’t show a video of the movement – I’m sure you all know what the action wobbler does – but I did take a picture with the card rotated 90 degrees – to show some movement:
The hardest part of this wobbler was to decide where to put it on the Santa – so I more towards the top, behind his hat.
I hope you can come and join us for this challenge, and continue to build your Christmas card stash………….there’s some fabulous inspiration from the rest of the Design Team. I also see there were quite a few entries to apply for joining our DT – good luck to everyone, and I hope to get to know you better.
