Santa Face Card
It's a good way to use up white cardstock scraps as well as smaller pieces of red that you may have leftover from another project.
Thank you to Dee Slater, a SU demo, for sharing this idea!
It's an A2 sized card. I cut an 1 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece of red for his hat, ran 4 strips of white cardstock through various Cuttlebug folders and then tore the edges.
Layer the torn pieces onto the white cardstock then use a marker to make his eyes. Punch a 1" circle for the nose and pop dot it so it will stand off the white base.
Dee didn't give him rosy cheeks but I thought Santa always had rosy cheeks so I just brushed some chalk on with my fingertip. Then I added some white accents in his eyes and on his nose.
The snowflake is from Accent Essentials cartridge and was cut at 1". It's been accented with a Clear Star Gelly Roll pen to add a little bling.
The cardstock I used is pure white, it just has sort of a rosy tint in the photo. I haven't mastered using the digital camera yet. I keep experimenting with different backdrops, etc to get the best photo I can. I'll figure it out yet!
