Hang in There!

Happy Friday!  It's Jeanne today and I have a card of encouragement for those feeling overwhelmed by the holidays (and aren't we all feeling that way?)  This cute Santa is hanging on and I want to tell him and others "don't let go - hang in there!"

I used Copic markers and Distress Oxide inks to color the pieces of the image.  I assembled much but not all of the image.

I cut a green A2 card base, a panel 4 x 5 1/4 inches from a pine tree patterned paper, a white oval using the largest of the Nested Stitched Scalloped Oval dies, and an oval using the second largest of the Stitched Oval dies.

Using a stencil and DO ink I stenciled clouds on the Stitched Oval and stamped my sentiment close to the bottom.

Then I adhered my Santa to the oval just above the sentiment.  I knew I would need to adjust the branch so that is why I had not completely assembled the Santa before putting it on the card.

I trimmed the branch from the oval and glued it to the scalloped oval to form the medallion.

I tied a ribbon around the pine panel and added a small pine cone to the bow.  The love how this pattern is like  the tree Santa fell through!  The panel is glued to the card front.

I used foam tape and popped the medallion up off the front of the card.

The holidays can be stressful and I love how this little guy is hanging in there!
