Punch Art Santa Card

This fun Santa card is made using punches, with the exception of the body and a few hand cut pieces. I cut a 2-1/2 inch wide by 3-3/4 inch high triangle with my Cricut and added all the other body parts as follows:

  • 1-2 inch white circle punch for top of hat.
  • 1/4 inch strip of white cardstock cut for hat rim (hand cut)
  • Head/beard - 1-3/4 inch scallop circle punch. Ink edges of scallop circle in black, Add some rosy cheeks with a sponge dauber,
  • Eyebrows - 1/2 inch circle punch cut in half and edges inked in black
  • Eyes - 1/4 inch circles punched in black. Highlights added to eyes with white gel pen.
  • Mustache - 1 inch circle punch cut in half and inked around edges in black
  • Nose - 1/4 inch circle punched using red glimmer paper.
  • Arms - word window punch for each arm.
  • Hands - 1/2 inch circle punch cut in half
  • Bottom of Santa's coat -  1/4 inch strip of white paper cut to fit. 
  • Legs - word window punch in black
  • Boots - 1/2 inch circle punch cut in half.

Polka dot DSP is from the Merry Moments paper stack. I used real red and old olive cardstock for bard base. Layers were punched with scallop edge punch (no longer available from Stampin' Up). Enamel dots are Home for Christmas Enamel Dots. Overall finished size of card is 4-1/4  x 5-1/2 inches. "ho, ho, ho" is stamped on 1 inch circles stamped with individual letters, then layered on top of red and olive green 1 inch circles.

Ho, Ho, Ho, Merry Christmas!!!
