This is my first attempt using a Wobble element on a card project. It was SO fun - and easy! I was inspired by the tutorial here on SCS by Frenchie (France Martin). She made a delightful card, with 3 chubby little birds, one stacked on top of the other. The top birdie had an Action Wobble attached to the back of it. Frenchie has a wonderful wit and her fun card inspired me to try my hand at making one.
As chance would have it, I happened to have a healthy supply of Action Wobbles in my stash. Purchased in 2014 and until now, NEVER used!!!! I wonder what project I purchased them for and never got around to doing?...a question for another day...
I decided to go the lazy route and checked out my stash of available ready-to-use images that were big enough to accommodate the size of Action Wobbles I had. The Santa face diecut from Hobby Lobby fit the bill, and I got started designing a card around that image.
I fully intended to make a regular A2 card, but opted to make a tag instead when I found a piece of Wooden Fence patterned paper that was a tad too small for a card front. I found a tag die by Kat Scrappiness that was the right size, and cut the tag after gluing the dp to a some kraft cardstock to make it a heavier weight.
The pine sprigs were tucked in back of the Santa face after the Action Wobble was attached to the tag. I used the new SU Snowfall Accents Puff Paint to add some texture to sprigs. It puffed up really BIG! Note to self: less is more! Ha...
I finished off the tag with a simple sentiment tag using my favorites punch, SU Washi Label, and some sparkly yarn.
Thanks for checking out my Action Wobble Santa. Festive wishes to you!

Wonderful retro looking tag, Susy! Love your snow on those boughs! (Thanks for the deets on the moose punch, very interesting!) I am now wishing I had the washi label punch-it looks perfect on your tag.
