Dancing Skeleton!

Hi – Two posts in one day….yikes! newly imported 857 I love this little skeleton guy and wanted to find a way to make him wiggle!  I know there is a way to do it with pennies like on a slider card but it seemed beyond my tired brain to figure it out so I did what I do best – make stuff up!!  First the card details:  The skeleton is embossed with white powder on black cardstock and I cut him out.  The DSP is the new Cast-a-Spell pack. To make the 3-d scallop circle behind him, I cut a piece 1½”x12” and used the scallop punch along the long edge.  Then I folded it back and forth in an accordion fold and stuck the end together with sticky strip so it made a circle.  Using large glue dots, I stretched it into a bigger circle that would stick out the sides of the orange circle. There’s a little black piece that’s also scalloped behind the Pumpkin Pie ribbon.  newly imported 858 The two buttons are actually Certainly Celery and Apricot Appeal but they are close enough when the black gingham ribbon is added!  The stamp set is Scary Skeleton from pg 24 of the Idea Book & Catalog.  To make the skeleton swing back and forth, I put a paperclip on the back with a glue dot.  Then I put a big brad through the loop of the paperclip and stuck it through the orange circle.  Now he swings back and forth like he’s dancing. I’m not sure if that’s harder than the penny trick, but it worked for me!  Click on the pictures to make them bigger if that helps.  Holler if you have any questions!  Thanks for stopping by -
