Interactive Christmas card - Santa's in the chimney

For my interactive card, I got the idea from Torico who made a wonderful and playful card where Santa could go up and down in the chimney. So I decided to make a card with Santa who can also jump up and down in the chimney but I made some changes and I used a different technique and a different stamp set, actually a Birdie Brown's (Torico) stamp set :-)

Voilà, my card:

The background was a mixture of different shades of blues using Distress inks and Distress Oxide inks (Broken China, Chipped Saphire, Faded Jeans, Stormy Sky). Oh, I applied a little Black Soot as well. 

The snow was made with the Snowfall Stencil by MFT using Ranger Opaque Matte Texture Paste. 

The chimney was made with the Small Brick Wall stencil using the following Distress inks (Brushed Corduroy, Fired Brick).

The reindeers and Santa were stamped with Chocolate Hybrid ink and coloured with Copic Sketch markers.

And here you can see in pictures how Santa is coming up.

What I used:

MFT Birdie Brown, Jingle All The Way stamp set

MFT, Die-Namics A2 Rectangle Stax die - for the card, the roof and the chimney

MFT, Die-Namics Negative Dot Alphabet die

MFT, Die-Namics Surf&Turf die

MFT, Die-Namics Interactive Pull Tabs die

MFT Small Brick Wall stencil

MFT Snowfall stencil

MFT Pin&Slide disks

Ranger Distress inks

Ranger Distress Oxide inks

Copic Sketch markers

Ranger Opaque Matte Texture Paste

And in the end, here is my video:

With my card, I would like to join the MFT 2019 Card Design Superstar Challenge in the Innovation Master category.
