Hey Procraftinators! I am back with my third and final Dancin' character card. This is the Dancin' Santa using from the dancin' characters that Spellbinders offers.
I batch made these with my Dancin' Snowman & Dancin' Deer cards, so I made these in the same manner. I pulled out all my nesting dies and chose 2 dies, one larger and one slighting smaller. I chose the smaller one and cut it from a Christmas patterned paper and took the smaller one and cut it from a solid colored cardstock that coordinated with the patterned paper. Then, I took all my Santa pieces out to my recliner and assembled them while watching tv. That's where I like to do all my tedious assembling tasks. I just find that it is more comfortable to sit in my recliner and watch tv while I assemble. Well, watching tv doesn't make it more comfortable, it just helps pass the time while doing a more tedious task, but the recliner is definitely more comfortable than my office chair. Haha!
I adhered all my Santa with foam tape so that the legs would dance. I do believe there is an assembly video on the Spellbinders YouTube channel, but if not, there are plenty of other YouTubers that have shown how to assemble these little characters. It's pretty easy to figure it out. Then, I stamped out sentiments from the Dancin' Holiday Sentiments stamp set and die cut with an MFT Essential Slanted Sentiment Strip Die for the front and stamped a sentiment on the inside. I also embellished the front with some snowflake die cuts from two older Spellbinder sets, Deck the Halls and Holiday Decorations using Tim Holtz Metallic Kraft-Stock OR some poinsettia die cuts from a Sizzix die set called Poinsettia Fold-a-Long using some red cardstock.
