Make It Move Challenge

Over at Make It Crafty this week our technique challenge is to Make It Move.  This card did not turn out to be what I wanted but I am happy with the end result.  I started with this adorable Cheery Santa digi image from Make It Crafty - if you like rubber, you can get this guy as a stamp too.  Isn't he just the jolliest Santa you have ever seen?
I sized and printed the Santa onto Cryogen paper with my inkjet printer.  Copics used:
Santa - E000, E00
Suit - R46, R59
Beard - C1, blender pen
Hat and Suit Trim - B000, blender pen
Belt - YR23, C2
Boots - C2, C4, C6
I airbrushed B02 around the image before removing it from the die.  The image spins in the opening.  I added part of The Night before Christmas to the back of this oval panel as well as to the panel on the inside of the card.  Finished size is 5 x 7 inches.

I was trying to reverse engineer a card a friend of mine received that actually spun the image in the opening by adding a cord hidden behind the baffles inside the card.  But I ran out of time and was not having much luck.  So instead I just suspended a snowflake punched from McGill and Martha Stewart punches.  I added some Stickles for added bling.

This was a fun challenge, and stop by the Learning Center for a great tutorial that Zoe has put together for you.  She makes her images slide as you open the card, too cool.    And won't you play along with us for a chance to win prizes from Make It Crafty?  Be sure to stop by and see what the rest of the Design Team has come up with.
