More Holiday Faces

Yesterday, I shared a cute Santa Face that I cased from another demonstrator online (sorry I cannot remember her name).  It is funny how when you make a card it sometimes leads to other designs that just pop into your mind.  That is exactly how I came up with the 2 I am going to show you today.  They are still face cards but of different characters.

This first one as you can see is a snowman.  I used the red glitter paper from SU! for the hat band.  I happen to have a snowflake impression folder not from SU! to use for the top hat.  Then  I used the new Stripes impression folder from the 2011-2012 catalog.  I will tell you to check out the Holiday Mini when it comes out in September for an impression folder that would work for the top part!!  I added orange glitter to the "carrot" nose which I punched out of Tangerine Tango card stock using the pennant punch.  I wanted to give him a little something special just to dress him up so I added the snowflake to his hat.  Overall, I was pleased with the outcome.  I happen to share it with my daughter and she came up with the idea of the next face I would make.

The elf was her idea and she asked me to bring it to life.  Of course I accepted her challenge and went to work right away.  I used an impression folder not from SU! for the top of his hat.  I know I am not being faithful but you should see how much stuff I have at home.  I have to use it.  You could use an SU! folder.  It would work just as well.  For the brim of his hat, I cut a 1" strip of Garden Green.  I then punched out Real Red  pennants with the pennant punch and trimmed them down to 1" high.  This allowed me to make a nice pattern for the hat.  Then I ran the piece through the Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dots impression folder.  The ears are the large petal from the Blossom Petals Builder punch.  I used the small oval for his nose and then added Blushing Bride ink to his cheeks.  His hair is a piece of Soft Suede card stock.  I free handed the scallop for the hair to make it look wavy.  When I showed my daughter what I had come up with, she was thrilled.  She thought he was cute.  Of course, I think he is cute too.

Once again the weekend is upon us.  I wish all of you a happy and safe weekend.  I will be back on Monday with another sample for you.  Until then, thanks for dropping in today!!
