Interactive Santa

 I love interactive cards, ones that "do" something and I had been looking for this book by Annie's Attic unsuccessfully for a while.

 When I was in Estes Park at my favorite Scrapbooking retreat this summer we took a field trip to a local scrapbooking store. Imagine my surprise when I found the book I had been looking for there. 

When I got back to the retreat i looked through the pages trying to decide which card I was going to attempt first. As always seems to happen at retreats it ended all too soon and I never got a chance to try one out. 

Fast forward a couple of months to October when I was working on my SOTM swap using the Share The Magic Set. I decided to try a card with a hidden pop up. 

Here is the card.

I went all out on this one.
I think this card has more techniques
on one card than I have ever done before.

Santa's suit is colored with copics. 
His beard is Liquid Applique. 
The fur on his suit is fun flocked.
His boots are and belt are covered in Liquid Glass for that shiny touch. 
His Belt buckle is embossed in silver
and his toy sack is paper pieced...
whew...and all of that is before I even get to my favorite part...the hidden surprise!

When you pull on the little tab with the snowflake 
at the bottom of the card Rudolph pops up
and wishes you Happy Holidays. 

This is by far my favorite Christmas card I have created this year. Thanks for looking!
