Telescoping card

This is a swap I'm doing at SSSD, its called "A different kind of card". I have signed up to do one each month for the full year. I had done this particular format at an SU Club meeting and liked it. I can't find the one we did at club but here is the card I made for the swap.

I enjoyed making this card, but it took me hours of thinking and trying different things to make him come out right. The hat I grabbed off the internet, the eyes are wiggly eyes, the nose is just a piece of postit and the mouth is a piece of fiber. The arms are hemp that I braided and colored, the buttons are plastic gems. Winter fun was cut on my Cricut and small white brads hold the three circles together. That's January, don't know what February will bring, but, you may see it here next month.
Thanks for stopping by. Take care

This is adorable, Joyce! I love the border around his bottom layer, and his little "twig" arms are just too cute.
