Santa Face Card

This little guy is so cute!  And talk about fast and easy to assemble!

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!
