The countdown to the new year is here and I have a fun “Jolly Old St. Nick” Greeting Card project for you. This project is perfect for a Christmas card craft and would also be good for an ornament or decoration for a holiday gift bag.
Time: 30-40 minutes
Skill Level: Beginner
YOU WILL NEED:
Product: 9″ x 12″ craft cuts Kunin Classicfelt in Cashmere Tan, Grey, Red, White and Pirate Green
Optional: Kunin Plush in Polar White
Sizzix XL die for Santa Face in Cashmere Tan
A2 sized greeting card in white or cream
Tulip Puff Paint in Black and White
Tacky Glue and Hot Glue
Small white pom for Santa’s hat
Begin by die cutting and hand cutting your felt pieces:
- 1 Cashmere Tan Felt circle (approximately 2 ½ inches in diameter)
- 1 hand cut of Plush Polar White Felt for Santa’s beard (another option is to use Kunin Classfelt in White) and 2 hand cut pieces of Polar White Felt for Santa’s eyebrows
- 1 hand cut piece of Red Felt for Santa’s hat
- 1 hand cut piece of Red Felt for small nose
- 2 hand cut small leaves in Pirate Green Felt for Santa’s hat
- 1 hand cut in Grey Felt for Santa’s mustache
Next, you will need to take the circle piece (Cashmere Tan) and adhere it with tacky glue to the card.
Now you can adhere the small red hat and white beard pieces with tacky glue, and then the grey mustache and red nose, also with tacky glue. After that you can add puff paint for the eyes (Black) and the hat trim (White).
Once the puffy paint has dried, you can them adhere the 2 white eyebrows with a generous amount of tacky glue. You can also adhere the green leaves and red gemstone with tacky glue.
Next, you can use a glue gun to adhere the white pom for Santa’s Hat. As a final embellishment, you can take a pink marker (I used a pink Sharpie) and create rosy cheeks for your “Jolly Old Saint Nick” Greeting Card. After you color the felt, you will need to quickly rub the felt to create a “blushing” effect on the felt.
