Festive Friday #39


It's a clash of the Design Teams today!  I'm filling in for a fellow Design Team member at Festive Friday today.  If you're looking for my Just Add Ink card, scroll down to the next post.

This week Nicole has given us an inspiration photo to create with.  It's a funny one!
lol, I actually googled "Stampin' Up Santa bum punch art" for ideas.  I didn't find any Santa bum punch art creations, but I did find a few Easter Bunny bum ideas which I adapted for Santa.  Here's my card.

Does it look like Santa is trying to climb through the card?  I hope so!  Here's a closer look at Santa's bum.

Pretty easy punch art so far, just a 1 3/4" Circle punchie and two of the now retired Small Oval punchies.  Oh, and a teased out cotton ball as the trim on his jacket.  I adhered the cotton using some of our Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets. The hole he's crawling through was punched one layer at a time using the 2 1/2" Circle Punch.

Well, I just had to put Santa's head on the inside - it'd look a bit funny if I just had his bum!  To create his head I've used the Ornament punch (beard), Bird Builder (mustache), Owl Builder (eyes, nose and mouth), retired Small Oval (face), Extra Large Oval (hat and trim on hat), 1/2" Circle (hat pom pom).  For his hands I used the retired small oval and the retired Slot punch.  I used my white gel pen to add the twinkle in his eyes.  Santa always needs that twinkle!  Here's a closer look at Santa.

I had a lot of fun making this card.  I hope you have time to play along with us at Festive Friday Challenges using this fun inspiration image.
