Knitting and Crochet
If you've got lots of Christmas cards to create this year, using a die-cutting machine is a sure-fire way to make the process a little easier. The miniature notelet uses the off-cuts from the die-cut design to create a mosaic-like effect (a technique known as paper piecing); we've chosen traditional colours that compliment our Winter Woodland collection, however your Santa could be any colour you like!

Intricut Christmas Santa Stamp Die
Take a 5 x 5″ white card blank, with the fold positioned at the top to create a tent card. Use a metal ruler and craft knife or paper trimmer to cut the blank down to 11.4(W) x 12.7(H)cm
Trim a sheet of tartan paper from the 6 x 6″ Winter Woodland paper pack to 10.8 x 11.9cm, then secure centrally to the front of the card blank.
Die-cut the Intricut Christmas Santa Stamp Die from red cardstock, then adhere on top of green panel cut in step two. The green card is slightly smaller than the die-cut so that it’s concealed behind the scallop edges of the design.
Die-cut the die again this time from grey, white and pink card. Paper-piece areas of the design using the completed project (below) image as a guide, use a glue pen to secure each of the pieces.
Cut out the design one more time from dark red card then fussy-cut the frame from the image. Rub a clear embossing ink pad over the frame, sprinkle with clear embossing powder then tap off the excess and melt with a heat tool. Adhere the frame to the card front.
Adhere adhesive foam pads to the reverse of the completed die-cut panel and secure centrally to the card blank. To complete the design, add a white pom pom to Santa’s hat with a small amount of tacky glue.
