The Christmas Spirit

Thanks to Barb and her annual Big Guy in the Red Suit swap, I'm well into the Christmas Spirit.  I've had fun putting this guy together.  I am so addicted to this new Sizzix card die.  The circle is so big that it's so easy to find stamps that fit in.
I added my little detail on the side for the ho, ho, ho.  It was completely by accident.  I cut out the sleigh paper and I had it going the wrong direction.  I didn't want to waste the paper I had all cut up so I glued it on.  My first intention was to put a straight strip there to cover up my mistake, but then I looked in the stamp set and found that the "ho, ho, ho" fit in there perfectly. 

 Here's what it looks like when it's opened.  The snowflakes are from a cool find at Joann's this weekend.  It's a jumbo bag of Favorite Findings.  There are 5 or 6 different sizes, must be about 200 in the bag for $5.99.  And, with a 40% off coupon it was really a bargain.

I love this card! Such a special treat to arrive in my mailbox!! I admit, I spent hours trying to figure how you cut it, now I know ;)
