Interactive Santa with Avery Elle

Hi everyone!  I've got a fun new Avery Elle project for you today using the new stamp and die set, Joy to the World!  I'm still in Christmas mode and this time, I did an interactive card.  


I used the same technique that I used here and the Joy to the World dies made it so easy!  This technique is a twist on the spinner card and allows Santa to fly around the world:)  


I die cut Santa and his reindeer and applied them to a ring.  The ring floats over the card using foam dots and flat buttons.  The buttons are wider than the ring so it doesn't fall off the card.  Here's a closeup of Santa as he approaches the Southern Hemisphere;)  


For the starry background I blended ink and misted it with some white spray (I'm sure you can imagine what my fingers look like:).  Fun stuff!

Thanks so much for stopping in!  Until next time!  

Mahalo and Aloha,
jj
