Santa Baby...hurry down the chimney tonight!

I made this card for the Cooking With Cricut weekly challenge -
Sounds of the Season.
One of my favorite Christmas songs is "Santa Baby"
by Marilyn Monroe, and was my inspiration for this project.

The white card base was embossed with the CB borders folder
on each side.
Small blue snowflakses from a Fiskars punch accent the background
along with a blue oval and embossed scalloped circle.

I started with a baby from SYI cut @ 4" and used the icon feature.
The sweet happy face is a Peachy Keen stamp.
The cute Santa hat came from Pooh and Friends and resized in DS to fit.
I added batting for fur, small gems for bling, and a sash  belt to finish.
The trees are from WW, are embossed with the CB snowflake folder,
and popped for dimension. 
Glittered lime green ribbon added to each corner and fitted with a snowflake sequin.

Now........the inside!  While the front looks a bit quirky, the inside is more adult!
It's been a long time since I've made a pop-up card, but this type fits this particular project.

The background paper does double-duty by looking a bit like wallpaper
while being festive at the same time.
The swirl tree and present are from Christmas Solutions,
the car is from Mickey and Friends, and the boa is from PDDU.
The wall is finished off with 2 leftover snowflakes and a
wreath made from the MS branch punch.
The wall is patterned after the lyrics I chose from the song.

The computer generated sentiment is a selection of lyrics from "Santa Baby:"
Santa Baby, slip a sable under the tree, for me
I've been an awful good girl
Santa Baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight.
Santa Baby, an out-of-space convertible too....light blue
I'll wait up for you dear
Santa Baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight.

So to all of you girls out there.........
Think of all the fun we've missed
Think of all the fellas  that we haven't kissed
Next year we could be just as good
If you check off our Christmas list........
Merry Christmas!

  12. Marilyn Monroe never recorded "Santa Baby". The artist and actress creating this memory in your head is Cynthia Basinet.
