Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Oh Snap

It's time for a new challenge at the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Dear Santa.

blesserhouse.com
I knew instantly that I wanted to use my favorite sarcastic Christmas set!  It's 'Tis the Season by Essentials by Ellen.  LOVE the sunglasses!

CC Oh Snap

The "Oh, snap!" actually goes with a cute little gingerbread man who has been nibbled a little, but I really needed two lines of sentiment to balance out the card - and I think it works!  His sunglasses have a drop of glossy accents. The tag is from MFT's Tag Builder Blueprints 2, but I did have to lengthen the tag. I cut the bottom half by only covering that half of the tag with the top cutting plate. Then I moved the tag die up, being sure to line up the edges from the previously cut part, and cut the top half.

I have two teenagers in the house, it's a bit of toss-up who will get this card because I'm sure there is plenty that only Santa knows!

I hope you visit each of the designers' blogs for more inspiration! We have a wonderful addition to the team - Silke Ledlow at My Life - at the same time we say thank you and farewell to the fabulous Amy Sheffer.

With all kids grown up now, whenever they want to tell me some of the things they did as kids I usually just stick my fingers in my ears and go "la la la, I can't hear you!!!" Not sure if I want to know, lol! I love this Santa!! Had to get this set after my get-together at the Lake House. I think it's the best/sassiest image out there!! Great card, and I'm sure which ever of your boys get it, they'll chuckle! Love this!! Bev
