Dancing Santa

Greetings of the Season.

This morning I am playing along with the challenge at Splitcoast where the theme it 'dance'.
Every time I see this little Santa it makes me smile and think about the song 'Rockin Around the Christmas Tree'.  Here is what I did to create my simple card.

I began by embossing a square in the center of my card using a die from Spellbinder.  I then masked the edges and stamped the sentiment from Paper Smooches a number of times in the masked area.  
Next, I printed off Santa, coloured him with Copic markers and fussy cut him out.
*Santa is a Birdie Brown digi that is no longer available in that format but is available in a stamp set from MFT. 
I pop dot mounted him so he looks like he is dancing and jumping up to point at the sentiment.

I am adding my card to these challenges:

  6. Very cute card! Like how you multi-stamped your sentiment on the inside and I love Torico's Santa. After following her, I was glad that MFT "scooped her up!" She's is a great CAS designer. :)

  11. I love the way you did the sentiment behind Santa, Karen. The only thing you needed was an action wobble. Then Santa would really dance.
