Santa Pants Card

Ok, the minute I saw this at Joanne's blog "Sleepy in Seattle" I knew I had to make one!!! (the clip on the bottom is one of those card holder stand things. I put it on the card to take the photo)

Isn't it just the cutest? I laughed when I saw the inside of the card!!! And what is SO cool about it is you don't affix the pants at the top so you can slip in a gift card or money. Though I'm not sure I would do the money part. It just seems wrong!!! LOL

And it this card also answers the question some of you may have had on your mind. Boxers or Briefs? Now we know!!! LOL

There were LOTS of parts to this card. Some I wasn't to fond of making. I really don't like to do the paper piercing. I never have. I do like the effect but I think it takes too long. I am always anxious to get the end of it and be done with it! I NEVER do them in a swap or on our Christmas cards. Once in a GREAT while I will do it on a card but not very often at all. But this card had to have it on it and I am glad I did it. But I did only make one of these!

I didn't have any red buttons so I punched out black circles. The red circles I punched out didn't look good on the front. But I don't think the black ones look so good either! But I still like the card so I'm leaving it the way it is.

If I were to ever make another one I think I would print out the words on card stock from my printer and then cut it to fit the card. I don't have very nice writing and I was a bit disappointed in that. But again, I still like the card!

I also should have made the belt a bit longer so it hangs over the other side of the card more.

It's a fun card and I have someone special in mind to give it to! I'll let you know their reaction!!! LOL

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
