Today I just had to share with you my little Santa made with a 2" circle punch cut flat on the bottom (my 2-1/2" circle punch is on its way to me from Stampin' Up! and would be a better body--a little bigger!).
The hat is cut using the 1-1/4" circle and so is the face.
Here is another close up of this Santa's face. I show two because for this one's mustache, I used the SIDE, rather than the BOTTOM of the Curly Label punch to cut the mustache and I think I like the more narrow mustache better. I sponged Crumb Cake around the white beard, mustache and hat trim to make it show up. On this Santa, I popped up his head with dimensionals. I like that better.
The sentiment on this card (MERRY CHRISTMAS) is from the Christmas Greetings stamp set. I just cut around it and then sponged on some red around it. Oh and I should add that the card itself is Real Red cardstock, matted with black, and the card front is Pear Pizzazz from the Patterns DSP Pack.
I believe this is one of my favorite cards I've made this Christmas. Funny how you make a card and it's your favorite; you make another and like it best, and on and on. I truly LOVE designing Christmas cards. I have a few more gift card holders I need to make and then will start focusing on Valentines! Love these holidays!!
Have a great day! Thanks for visiting my blog!! Smiles, Laura
