Leslie's Punchy Santa



Aren't these the cutest Santas? I followed Leslie's wonderful tutorial here to make this card. I pretty much made my Santa the same, except I used red brads for Santa's arms, so that I can re-position them how I want. The curly beard and mustache is all Leslie's idea. The designer paper is from the Winter Bright Scrappin' kit, and the sentiment is from my Lizzie Anne Holiday Cheer set. The swirls in the snow, and Santa's beard are made by using my Big Shot with the D'vine Swirls Cuttlebug embossing folder. The May Arts ribbon was purchased from Verve Visual. Thanks for the awesome tutorial, Leslie! It was so much fun to make!

Stamps: Holiday Cheer (Lizzie Anne Designs)
Card Stock: Old Olive, Read Red, Whisper White, Basic Black
Ink: Adirondack Pitch Black, Pretty in Pink, Sakura Black Glaze pen
Accessories: ¼, ¾, 1 inch circle punches; Scallop Circle punch, 1 ¼ Square punch, red brads, D'Vine Swirls Cuttlebug Folder & Big Shot, Creative Memories Decorative Trimmer, Pewter Hodgepodge Hardware Buckle, May Arts ribbon, Tombo Mono Multi Liquid Glue, Stampin' Dimensionals, Glue Dots
