"12 Cards of Christmas - Card 11"
Tim's tag featured photos of real people, but I thought it would be great to have a strip of vintage Santa images from the Graphics Fairy.
I've had this film strip stamp for a while and never used it. The filmstrip was stamped 3 times onto white card and again on acetate, joining the ends to make a longer strip. The centre rectangle of each cell was cut out from the card, and five Santa images printed onto white card, cut out, and stuck behind the holes. The card strip was then covered with the acetate strip (carefully lining up the stamps), using a strip of holographic glitter glue down each side to stick the acetate to the card (if, like me, you're old enough to remember film like this, you too may have marvelled at the way light shines through the holes, or was that just me?).
One of the "photographs" on the filmstrip was blown up to make this image (printed onto card and distressed around the edges with scissors and ink). The large "photo" was then pinned to the card with a large plastic clip, coloured to match the card by dabbing with blue & silver Adirondack inks, and fixed in place with a blue jewel brad.
A small rectangle of embossed, silver card was stuck to empty cat food box and die cut with an alphabet strip die to obtain the numbers "25". The numbers & filmstrip were stuck to the topper with PVA, then the topper glued to a blank blue pearlised card.
