Believe in Santa

This was a really simple Santa Suit idea I cased from Louise Del Vecchio from Stampin Connections, a demo only site.  Super simple and so much fun.    Take a base Real Red cardstock. Stamp Believe from Snowflake Serenade with versamark and emboss with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder to add a subtle sentiment with just the right amount of sparkle.  Punch 2 scallop circles (1 1/4 inch in the holiday catalogue)  with whisper white CS and mount with dimensionals.  Someone suggested cotton balls but I think a powder puff or pom pom would also work well here.   For the belt I took a 7/8 inch square punch (not SU- but 1" square works too) using Brushed Gold CS then I used Curly Label punch to make the buckle.  I used a 7/8 inch strip of basic black card stock and just laid the Gold buckle on top. 
It would be a really fun and easy project for kids even.

Hi Lynda! This is Louise! Thanks for giving me credit for my card on Stampin' Connection! Just wanted to let you know that I didn't even bother punching a square hole in the buckle piece: I simply cut another piece of Basic Black c/s, lined it up with the BB belt, and SNAIL'ed it onto the Brushed Gold (Curly Label Punch) buckle. The Scallop Square punch makes a nice buckle too. Also, if you wanted to make a Mrs. Santa card, use the new glimmer paper for the buckle! Makes it nice and sparkly! Merry Christmas! All the best,
