Here Comes Santa

Hello Again!!
Trudi with you today sharing a fun project created with the  New Traditions Christmas Collection.  We are approaching the 'down hill slide' of the year and dare I say it - Christmas will be here before we know it.  Every year I seem to say 'Already?' - It just seems to comes around quicker and quicker. 
 During one of our recent trips to Kmart, I spied these super cute upside down Santa legs and boots which were perfect for the project that I had in mind.
So.... Here comes Santa!  (down the chimney):
 
Ruby Rock-It Products:
12 x 12 New Traditions Paper Pad, 6 x 6 New Traditions Paper Pad, Bolt Chipboard Buttons BOE55, Happy Days Chipboard Alphabets HYE25, Bella Florals JA0498 (white flower)
Other:
Paper Straws, Tulle, Festive Berries, Flower Vine, Pear Baubles, Metal Frame Die, Chipboard, Aleene's True Snow, Stencil, Wire, Santa's Legs (from Kmart), Decorative Border Punch, White Cardstock (for creating snow borders around edge)
  
I created chimney base from chipboard.  I wanted a larger chimney so worked with a 12 x 12 sheet which I cut in half ( ie: 2 x pieces measuring 15 cm x 30 cm).  The sides were covered with paper from the 12 x 12 New Traditions Pad. The corners embellished with strips trimmed from the coordinating red glitter cardstock also included with the pad.
Some brick detail was added - Texture medium was applied to bare chipboard with a stencil and then trimmed.
The chimney top was constructed again with chipboard, painted black and the sides embellished with New Traditions paper.  Match Boxes (empty) were wrapped with paper from the 6 x 6 New Traditions Pad to create presents.  Some were wrapped with twine and embellished with a star chipboard button from Bolt #BOE55.  These were scattered amongst the festive flowers and berries. 
A Christmas Sentiment was added to the front chimney panel.  A few more chipboard buttons were added for decoration purposes along with the fussy cut 'Flying Santa'.
 
Thanks so much for dropping by,
Happy Creating!
