Naughty or nice?


Challenge #31 at Tiddly Inks is to create a card inspired by a Christmas song. This image reminded me of "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" where Santa is "making a list, checking it twice; gonna find out who's naughty or nice".  



After coloring the image, I cut it out using the oval Nestabilities and tried to do the "out of the frame" method, to make her list appear as if it's coming out of the Nestie shape.





Alice made it look so simple here, and Rach's tutorial is so clear and concise. I just need a LOT more practice! I ended up printing out another list and pasting one over the other. The background was in my scraps bag--something that I stamped up last year!

  6. Hi Donna. This is just so adorable! I love how you have colored her. I enlarged your picture and I am sorry, but I still can not tell that you did make just one cut to get that list out of the frame. Very, very cute! I wish I had this digi. I will have to wait until after Christmas, but there is always next year... Anyway I just wanted to tell you that your card is just wonderful. Hugs, Lisa G
