Willy Wonka Christmas Mint Circle Card
This card was created for the latest challenge at the Burtonesque Dolls (see link below). I have to say this was a fun one! For research I re-watched both Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (i.e. the one with Gene Wilder) and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (i.e. the one with Johnny Depp). I used Mad About You from Tiddly Inks. You can find him here. He is actually the Mad Hatter but I thought he looked a little like the Gene Wilder version of Willy Wonka!
I plan to enter this card in the following challenge:

I colored my digital image with Prismacolor pencils and gamasol. I cut two circles out of white Bazzill cardstock using my Cricket. For the front piece I took my liquid glue and starting at roughly the center made a spiral out from the middle of the card. I then added the fuzzy red ribbon very carefully to the glue! While that dried I created the title using my computer and a font called Ravie. I printed it out on purple cardstock and matted it on green. I used a little studio g letter set to stamp new at the front of the title and then using foam adhesive to the card. I attached the two pieces of my card together with a brad. This was my daughter's brilliant idea-so when you open it it just rolls up and doesn't fold or hurt the card! I cut out Willy Wonka and used more foam adhesive to add him to the card, cover the brad. The I took green tissue paper and made the sides of the candy wrapper! I figure this will work for a Christmas Card for a nearby relative or friend. This baby's not going through the mail!!!
