Well...it took lots of tweaking, and I still think if I did this card again that there are a few things that I would change - but I couldn't get this idea out of my head once it popped in there!!! I was trying to think of ways to use my new action wobbles, when this jack in the box from Nate's ABC's popped into my head. (Of course, the fact that I was driving back from taking a friend to the airport and 3 AM and trying to stay awake probably had NOTHING to do with it!) I am also entering this in the weekly challenge on the Cricut Circle Blog - to make a "Just Because" project.
The jack in the box, of course, came from Nate's ABC's. I cut his head again separately to attach with a wobble (you can see the motion of it in the last two pictures, at least a little bit). I inked the edges of everything, added some faux stitching, and put glossy accents on the eyes, nose, and mouth. At my husband's suggestion I also cut a long narrow rectange to make a "table" for him to sit on - and that added SO much to the finished card...it just didn't look right before that! Finished off with a little Baker's Twine, and a sentiment from Pink by Design.
