Topless Santa is Looking Cool!

S T R E T C H ing my Holiday Catalog products again, this time
playing with the VERY MERRY TAGS stamp set (pg.33).
And the never ending (cause there are 48 sheets) 

An Aging SANTA still looks COOL!...a REAL guy card

The whole thing started when I decided to use the LABEL BRACKET punch to try and create a Santa beard. Before you knew I was into it deep, yep...PUNCH ART here I come. I think I could spend hours with my punches just creating lots of details, which I know would drive some people crazy ( all those little parts ) LOL. But I just get on a roll and what ever hits my brain, I go ahead and create. Seems like the bald look for guys has become the norm so I knew my topless Santa would appeal to the guys as well as us ladies.

Head (Extra Large Oval), Ears (Bitty Butterfly) and mouth(1/2" Circle) using Vanilla Card stock and sponged with Pink Pirouette ink.
Beard (Label Bracket) and Mustache (Bitty Butterfly) using Whisper White card stock and Basic Gray ink.
Real Red nose (1/4" Circle) and Basic Black sunglasses (1/2" Circle)

Bitty Butterfly Punch1/2 Inch Circle PunchExtra-Large Oval Punch
Bracket Label Punch

Crumb Cake card base and a Gumball green Top Note panel set off the striped DSP strip and Polka Dot Banner from the Seasons of Style DSP stack.

I used 2 of the stamps from  Very Merry Tags stamp set which has 8 super cute stamps using all of our favorite punches.

I decided to S T R E T C H the Naughty/Nice image a bit and
write COOL instead just to help match up my new BALDing Santa.
I think this would make a Great Guy card

A Day of indulging my PLAYFUL side...I hope you had fun too!


  1. This is fantastic - love it ( and your imagination!)

  2. Very cool - this kinda looks similar to my son's dad (as in facial hair and bald on top) so I'm going to CASE (hope you don't mind) to make a tag for his Christmas gift. You are very clever. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I'm so glad you all are enjoying my sense of humor. Have fun making your own!
