BBTB 2Challenge-Winter Frolic "Santa"
BBTB2 brings you a great challenge, to use the Santa from "Winter Frolic", I do not have that cart so I used the Santa from "Joys of the Season". It started out as a red blank canvas and I went to look for my favorite Holly paper for the background and could not find it, I know there is another piece somewhere. So I started playing with the Holly Sizzix die and just scattered them about the red card stock blank. I was going to use a real bell on Santa's cap but it just was too bulky (will explain more about that in a minute) so I cut the bells also from "Joys of the Season" one for Santa's cap and one for the card with "Merry Christmas" on it. The photo corners are QKs enbossed with Cuttlebug. All coloring was done with Copic markers. As I was getting ready to place Santa on the card I remembered Linda K from "The Paper Boutique" had done a tutorial on an item called the "Action Wobble Spring" and thought it would be fun to have Santa wobble and jiggle on the card. So I did one, (if I had a web cam I would show you how jolly he is but I don't so you will have to take my word for it). I challenge everyone to make at least one, this card is a riot, I cannot walk past it without making Santa wobble, you can almost hear him calling out "HoHoHo". I will be making more of these. Have a great week as we head smack dab into the seasons. Hugs
