Christmas Card Club 1: Jolly Santa Card

Today I am featuring another card from my Christmas Card Club Session 1 from last weekend. It features the Tags 4 You stamp set, which is also available in a Bundle with the Label Bracket Punch at 15% OFF (choose either wood-mount or clear-mount bundle). I'll be sure to show you more fun with this stamp set and punch bundle combo later, but for today...on with the Jolly Santa Card...

1)  Cut Real Red card stock to 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and score in half to create a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" card with the fold on the left side.
2)  Run the front of the card through the Big Shot, using the Stripes Embossing Folder. Set this card base aside.
3)  Cut a shape from Whisper White card stock, using the largest of the Apothecary Accents Framelits.
4)  Line up the shape in the Stampin' Trimmer to cut in half (at 2-1/2").
5)  Stamp Holly Jolly Christmas image from Tags 4 You stamp set in Real Red at top center of one of the halved shapes, oriented as shown. (TIP: line up the pointy bottom tip of the stamp image with the pointy bottom tip of the die cut, for simple centering.) Set this piece aside to ensure the ink dries.
6)  Run scrap pieces of Basic Black card stock through the Big Shot, covering the smallest round button in the Sweet Buttons Embosslit. You'll need two buttons, but you should only run one piece of card stock through the embosslit at a time. Set these small pieces aside somewhere you'll find them again!
7)  Cut another piece of Basic Black card stock to 1" x 4-1/4". Adhere this across the card front, about 1/2" up from the bottom of the card base. Mini Glue Dots are the perfect adhesive throughout this project.
8)  Using the 1" Square Punch, punch a square near the edge of a piece of Brushed Gold card stock. Then, flip over your Curly Label Punch and slide the card stock with the punched square hole down into the punch, centering the square hole in the Curly Label Punch outline, and punch out. This will give you the shape you'll use for the belt buckle.
9)  Place a Mini Glue Dot at the back of the left and right sides of the buckle ONLY. Center buckle over top of 1" x 4-1/4" Basic Black piece on card, and press to adhere.
10) Take the Holly Jolly stamped piece and run it through the Big Shot, using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.
11) Adhere this piece to the top center of the card front, using Mini Glue Dots.
12) Adhere the two buttons to the card front as shown, using Mini Glue Dots.
13) Address your Medium Whisper White Envelope, put your card inside, affix appropriate postage--and SEND!
