HO HO HO Merry Christmas

Isn't this a cute Santa card.  I was on the Internet and I saw something like this but when I went back to look at it again I couldn't find it.  So I made it my own way.  Just loved the way it turned out.  And
I think Santa would like it too :)
His suit is made in Real Red c/s #102482.  I used Basic Black c/s #121045  belt and buttons.  The buttons I used the Buttons # 5 Sizzlits #113440-$4.95 page 191 on the big catalog.  His mustache & beard is made with Whisper white c/s # 100730-$6.95 for 40 sheets.  I used the wing on the Bird Builder punch #117191-$16.95 for his mustache and the Apothecary Accent Framelits in the big catalog pg 191- #127003- $24.95 for his beard.  His nose is out of Real Red c/s and his mouth is Pretty in Pink c/s but you could use Whisper White and just color it with any pink you already have.  Both were cut with the 1/2"circle punch pg 184(big book) $5.95 #119869.  I also used the snowflake embossing folder for his suit and belt.  His belt buckle is Silver Glimmer Paper pg 160 (big catalog) $4.95-#124005.  The shape was made with the 1 1/4" square punch-pg 183(big catalog) $15.95-#119065 and the smaller square is 1' Square punch-pg 183 $15.95 #124094.  (punch the smaller square first and the larger on last.  That way you can see how much paper you have on all the sides).
Remember, to use the Framelits, dies or embossing folders you must have a die cutting machine like our Big shot.  You can emboss or cut with any dies you get. 
                             Pg 186(big catalog)  #113439  $99.95

Hope you enjoyed this card.  It was alot of fun to make and I have gotten alot of good comments from those who I've showed the card.  I'd love to hear your thoughts too.
Have a blessed Thanksgiving.
