Paper Piecings By Nikki. I had so much fun making this little guy. He is attached to the background paper by the twine bow you see in his hat. When you lift him up, you can put a gift card, folded money or a lottery ticket under him. Simply write the persons name on the fur of his little hat and you have a perfect gift/card.
To create the background paper, I used the Close To My Heart stamp set, from the Pear and Partridge Cardmaking Kit. I used the "Merry Christmas" sentiment and stamped across the paper, inking every third image, to create this look.
To make the little bulb he's holding shiny, I placed a piece of plastic that I had saved from some packaging over it...but to get a really amazing contour look - you can use the Close to My Heart Liquid Glass. It is AMAZING and one of my favorite things to use!!!!
