Fancy Friday - Christmas-y Challenge

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  Happy Fancy Friday (or Thursday if you're reading this the night it goes live ;-)!  That's right, it's time for a Fancy Friday Blog Hop!

If you came from Jennifer's blog, didn't you just love her project?  Don't worry if you're just hopping on now though, just keep clicking through the links to see everyone!  And if you're new, we are group of current and past Artisan Design Team members who love to bring you fancy creations every now and then!

The theme this time was something with a Christmas theme which is right up my alley.  I remembered that I had picked up a few fun items last year (edited to add: I found these at Michael's but it was last year.  I'm sure you can find similar items there this year and other craft stores.  I do not know what size they are, there was not one listed.  They appear to be around 4".)  but never got around to making anything with them so I went to hunt them down, which was no easy task, lol!  I finally found them and decided to do a kind of snow globe!

The Signs of Santa Bundle was more than perfect for this task and I was excited to finally put it to use!  I simple colored and cut out the jolly old guy and made my little North Pole sign.  I also remembered I had these trees for photos so I simply stuck one on with a little Tombow Glue!

I made my items stand up by not QUITE cutting them out all the way.  I simply ran them through my big shot and backed them out before I had cut quite all the way through.  That takes a bit of trial and error but it's not too hard.  Hopefully you get the idea from this photo:

I did a little bit of hand trimming and then scored where I wanted the fold and there you have a standing Santa!

For good measure, I added a little bit of snow that I had lying around but I made sure I had a good layer of glue do it didn't shake around and stick to the inside of the globe.  A little bit of Real Red ribbon was all I needed to finish it off.  I'm excited to add this to my Christmas decor this year!  I hope it inspires you to try a bit of decor as well, especially with this bundle!

Now it's time to hop over to my friend Sue and see her amazing project!

Happy hopping!
