Hi there! It's Elena, back again for a closer look at the new Cozy Christmas dies and what you can do using them.
I think this Santa is so cute, and it's extra nice not having to cut out those arms! I stamped, colored and die-cut Santa and his extra arms, and wanted to have him perch over the sentiment banner (from the new Tags a Lot die set.)
but he was too short.
Here's what I did: I cut him in half. Complicated, right? ha.
Having sliced Santa above his belt, I was able to take my scissors and cut around his beard a bit, so that when I put the card together, his beard could overhand onto the sentiment banner.
Once I had everything stamped out (including the sentiment from Believe in Magic,) I adhered the focal rectangle to a starry clear card base. I think this is my first-ever acetate card base. Pretty nifty.
A length of candy-cane twine and some pretty sequins finished it off. That was that! I hope you like what I made for you today,
