I saw this cute Santa made with punches on several blogs and decided to make one, too. It’s really quite easy using a variety of punches. Dawn Olchefske has a nice tutorial if you would like to take a look at it HERE. Stampin’Up no longer sells a 1/4″ circle punch, but if you have a regular hole punch that you get at your local office supply store, it will work just as well for making Santa’s nose and hat pom pom. This will be one of the cards that my customers will make at the December Christmas Dozen.
You may have noticed the lovely scalloped rectangle that frames my Santa. This is made by using the Stampin’Up Scallop Square Die with the Big Shot machine. First I made a Scallop Square, then I figured out how big I wanted my rectangle to be. I lined up the edges of my scallop square die-cut with the edges of the die, except, I moved it up a bit to make it shorter. I ran it through my Big Shot machine. Then I did the same thing again to make it narrower and ta-da . . . I have a rectangular-shaped die!
