Stampin' Up! Santa Suit

 I made these Santa suits last night for the kids.
Check out how I used the Festive Felt Sheets.
They are on page 29 in the Holiday Catalog.
Notice how I made a pocket on the inside, so that I can add some cash for them.
 I hope they like them!
I think that they turned out cute!
Here are a couple of tips:
  1. I lightly scored down the center/middle of the card front, so that I had a straight line to follow when sticking down the 2 red felt center strips.
  2. I die cut the White Felt collar out of 2 Stitched Triangle Dies.  To make them more sturdy, I also cut 2 Whisper White card stock triangles that were exactly the same.  I then adhered the White Felt directly over the top of the Whisper White card stock triangles.

Here are the supplies & dimensions so that you can make this Santa Suit card too! 

stamp set:  'Tag Buffet' (for the inside of card)

  • Real Red-  4 1/4 x 11"- score at 5 1/2"- fold in half for card base

Stampin' Up! Lots to Celebrate

 Check out my HOME decor board I made.
I used my 'Lots to Celebrate' stamp set images 
as the "O" inserts for it.
These can be put on or removed, using velcro dots.
 Here are the different "O" inserts I made.
There are- hearts, daisies, stars, pumpkin, leaves & snowflakes.
The Jar images are adhered to a 2 1/2" circle.
 Check out how I added the different colors of leaves,
 when stamping them into the jar.
 This is a totally Susie decor & I just LOVE it!
Someday when I have time- I'll be making more Jar inserts too for this.
And I plan to hang this in my kitchen.
