Jingle and Jiggle All the Way

There's nothing like bright and fun when I feel like a little pick me up, and since I like to have a variety of cards to send to my diverse group of friends and family, I'll gladly sprinkle in a little fun along the way.
 
This card was quicker than it may appear:  A starry background with a landscape background over that, a frame from the scrap drawer, and some easy Copic coloring.
 
 
The reindeer's bottom is on a wobble spring and jiggles for giggles when given a little tap.  The spring compresses nicely for easy mailing.
 
My only embellishment is a fallen star, which is really just there because I stamped the sentiment too far to the left and needed a filler.  The star was cut in mustard card stock, then coated with Stickles Stardust glitter glue and micro-fine glitter sprinkled over that.  I touched it with my finger to lift some of the glitter and allow more color to show through -- as though it's a bit tarnished.  After all, it's a fallen star.
 
 
When viewed straight on, as when holding the card in your hand, the reindeer's jiggly bottom is not offset as it appears in the photo.
 
Well, that's enough fun for one day.  More explanation can be found in the recipe below.  Have a wonderful weekend!

Every time I visit your blog I am either awed by your beautiful coloring of your images or I have a big smile on my face and that is what is there today, this is just the cutest and to know his bum wiggles just makes me laugh, how fun this will be for whomever receives it.
