I apologize for not posting this yesterday, Sunday, July 22. I spent the entire day with my youngest daughter shopping. How fun was that? Right!!! She has been traveling back and forth over the weekends from here to Great Falls. Most of the time, she will spend her weekends catching up with all her friends. So when she said, "she was planning on spending the entire day with her mom". I dropped everything to spend it with her. Love you, baby!!!
So today's post is short and sweet. I made another shape card. This one is of Santa Claus. I hope you enjoy it.....
I used my gypsy with the cricut cartridge "Doodlecharms". You will find him on page 127 of the manual. I started off with the shadow feature and welded two at 4.25 x 4.05 in white cardstock. I cut another one in black cardstock and attached it to the front of my card. I then cut <santa> out at 4" in skin color cardstock. And <santa-s> was cut in both red and white at 4". Everything was adhered to the santa with a ATG except for the mustache. I used foam tape to add dimension.
For santa's hat, I used some Tulip "Puffy" white and my heat gun. After puffing up, I added some glitter glue. Sorry this doesn't show up well, but trust me it looks better in person.
For his eyes, I used black brads. I also used the bottom of a #2 pencil and dabbed the eraser in pink chalk by Studio G for his cheeks. After everything was done. I used more foam tape to attached to the base card and outlined the black with my white gel pen.
Here are the challenges I am entering santa into:
BBTB2 - Christmas in July
Just A Scrappin' - pink, black, white and one other color of your choice
My Craft Spot - Christmas in July
Little Scrap Pieces - Christmas in July
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful week.... Shawn
