It's time for another fun challenge at One Stitch at a Time (OSAAT). Our theme is "Use a Digi", how easy is that‽
My teamie Crafting Vicky chose my image this time (I chose the image for us for OSAAT #138), and it's the funtastic Busted from Stitchy Stamps (image by Graphics Factory):
The card base was cut with Sizzix's Circle Flip-its Movers & Shapers die, but I traced it to make the layers. The pretty DP is from my stash, and I added some plastic holiday lights from Darice.
My favorite part of this card is the least obvious... If you look carefully at the scallops around Santa, you'll see that I backed it so that the holes are filled in black. That is actually black "sparkly fluff" from Our Craft Lounge, to represent coal!
Santa is actually fussy-cut and glued onto the scalloped circle; I did this so that I could print his bag onto fabric. The two presents are stamped onto the same fabric and colored with Copics (as is Santa and his friend!)
For the flipped side, I used two border stamps to make a simple pattern. I cut a hole in a sheet of paper with a coordinating die so that I could mask the scalloped background and stamp the design directly on it. The words read, "Oh Deer" which I thought worked well with the funny theme.
