This little Santa card is so cute!! It was a perfect use for the red 3.5" circles I cut from the front of one of my previous cards! I completely cased this one from a Papercrafts magazine from 2005. The designer is Caroline Lau! It uses a white slide mount (cut from Bristol board with my Sizzix die) as the main element for the face. The mustache is two heart shapes glued to the back of the nose (1/2" circle). I used a black marker to create the eyes and red ink stippled through a hole (1/4") punched in a mask to create the blushed cheeks!! Caroline had used black stitched ribbon for the hat and the belt - I substituted black cardstock. The greeting on the bottom is embossed with white embossing powder!!
I am starting to have a little pile of Christmas cards here to send out. Though as the pile grows I am thinking of more and more people who I would like to send cards to. So in the I imagine it will all work out!!
These gift tags are for an exchange I am having with a group of friends! You will notice that these little snowmen are very similar to the ones I used on one of my cards!! They are from the same piece of fiber basket wrap I bought at Liquidation World. These are the smaller ones. I used the green 3.5" circles that cut out of the cards as the backers for the tags!! Very happy with how these worked out!! I still have quite a few snowmen so they may show up yet in another project!!
