DC – A Santa Jacket with a Belt Full of Decorations!!!

Good morning everybody! 

It’s Choosday which means it’s time for a new ‘Anything Goes’ challenge over at POLKADOODLES DIGI CHOOSDAY and as always we have a wonderful prize on offer for our lucky winner so check out the BLOG for details.   

Don’t forget it is also DISCOUNT DAY so you need to grab the code on THE BLOG to get a MASSIVE reduction in the POLKADOODLES SHOP! It’s for a limited time only so be quick!

The team’s challenge this week was to make a Christmas card with a pocket containing something, so I created Santa’s jacket with a belt stuffed with decorations...you know...as you do.

I used felt for what would be the furry parts of the suit and Polkadoodles dies cut through it perfectly.

I also wanted to use my printable shrink plastic again and that is what enabled me to make my little decorations. I actually made this card for a friend who is constantly complaining that her cat keeps playing with and breaking the baubles on her tree!
So go ahead cat, this is shrink plastic; give it your best shot!!

I'm pretty sure that Santa always carries this type of thing around in his belt !  You know for emergency tree decorating and stuff!! 😊
