SU017 Santa Suit card

Stamp Set: Merry.
Cardstock: White, Black, Real Red, Silver.

{Real Red, 51/2 x 81/2" top fold card.
White cs - cut 3" wide by 41/4" long.  Lightly draw a pencil line on the right side at 1/2" from both sides of the 3" width.  With the right side facing you, tear towards you on one line.  Repeat for the other side.  Glue to center of the card.
Silver cs - punch with 13/8" square punch. If you don't have a punch, it is easy enough to cut it with your cutter.  Use your xacto knife & cut slits on 2 opposite sides for the black cs to go thro.
Black cs - cut 1" wide.  You need one to measure 5" long and one at 11/2"
wide.  Round the corners of the 5" piece and sponge with white ink or chalk so that it looks like the end of Santa's belt. Add eyelets or you could draw them with a silver pen or just add some glitter glue. Thread the 5" piece thro the silver buckle.  Align short black piece under the 5" piece to complete the belt.  Adhere to the center of the card (bottom of belt is about 11/2" from bottom of card).}

Ink: Black.
Accessories: 1/8" hole punch, Black marker, Silver eyelets, Xacto knife, White chalk, Corner rounder, Eyelet setter, 13/8" square punch.
