- Cut the cardstock in half. Fold one half to make a 4.25x5.5” cardbase and set aside.
- On the other half sheet, stamp the large text stamp (minus the star) in Cardinal Red. Trim to a 4 x 5.25” panel and trim the corners with a fancy corner punch.
- Stamp snowflakes along the right side with the red ink and sponge Pine green ink around the edges as shown.
- Stamp the Santa image on the remaining piece of white with the Coal Black ink and black emboss with the detail black powder if desired.
- Color the Santa image and add Star Dust glitter glue to the hat, hair and beard. When dry, punch out the image with the oval punch and edge with the green marker.
- Trace the oval opening left from the punched out Santa image onto a piece of chipboard and cut out, making sure it’s slightly smaller than the punched out image.
- Attach this piece to the back of the Santa image with the Quick Dry adhesive and set aside to dry. NOTE: Placing the oval punch on top of it will help it dry flat.)
- Assemble the panel layer and the rhinestones on the white cardbase as shown. I used the tape runner for the panel.
- Attach the Santa image to the right side with the Quick Dry adhesive, sign the back of the card and you’re done!
This is a relatively quick and easy card to make and you could easily make a bunch of them to give to any friends and family with a great sense of humor!
