Hello everyone! Hope all is well with you and yours!
Thursday’s here so we have a new challenge over at the Delightful Challenge Blog and our theme this week is It’s A Kid’s World!, so make something with a child in mind! Or for me if you like; same thing! J
We are sponsored by
who are offering a fabulous prize!
So I wanted to make a kinetic card as I thought a child would enjoy something with a bit of movement and I thought Flying Santa would be perfect! I made a sliding mechanism (sounds technical and clever but was sooooo not!) to enable Santa to ‘fly’ across the sky and back again. OK so the poor guy only goes a few centimetres; not a long & interesting flight!!! I also made a ‘sleigh’ to hold some pressies, all of which I cut from various dies.
|Spot the diffrence??!!|
I originally intended to make a penny slider but the thought of Santa spinning out of control across the night sky might have looked a bit nightmarish, especially for kids! I know it would scare me!! J
