Shaped Santa Card

I always try to come up with cute but different Christmas cards for my granddaughters. As I was walking through a local gift shop I saw a very large metal star with a Santa hat on it and I immediately said to myself "I could do that with paper". Here's what I came up with and it just happens to fit the Santa is Coming to Town challenge over at Cards in Envy.

I cut the star out with my Cricut so it would fit an A2 envelope and embossed it. The hat and mustache (which is actually a parenthesis) were also cut with my Cricut. For the face I used a circle punch then inked it and added rosy cheeks and eyes with water color pencils. I added cotton to the tail of the hat and lots of stickles to the band on the hat. I found the red nose in my stash, not sure where it came from but it works well here. This was a lot of fun to make and I know my granddaughters will love it!
This card also fits a challenge at the 12 Days of Christmas Mini Crop at Turtle Soup.
