Santa's Hat Card

  I was visiting the amazingly talented Aphra Boyer's site here when I first spotted her Witches Hat card and just had to create something using it as my inspiration...so....I decided with the help of my crafty friend Tracy to make this Santa's Hat card.  I can't say that this would be one to mass produce as it took us around 8 hours to complete them, but I'm am just thrilled with how it turned out.  In fact I love it so much I may just keep this one for myself!
  I found the Poinsettia flower tutorial at Scrap A Little blog.  She has the greatest tutorials for all your handmade paper flowers.  I used Stampin' Up's Build a Brad to create the center of two of them and filled with Glossy Accents to creat an apoxy look.  The bits of tule were basted along one edge to gather them and then I used pinking shears to finish the visible edge.



  I used floral wire and pearl beads to make the snowman pin, and a cute little star button with the post cut off made the second pin.

  The word Joy was cut using my
Cricut and adheared with foam tape to add dimension.



Supplies:

Patterned Paper - BG: Blitzen, Ink - Tim Holtz, Brads - Stampin' Up, Glitter - Martha Stewart, Adhesive - Hot Glue & Elmers White glue & Foam tape, Cricut Cart - Winter Woodlands
