So just yesterday I saw these type cards and thought they were just brilliant, so I decided to give it a try. I'm new to cricut and this is actually my first real card (that's finished, I have several other works in progress...)

The Santa is from Doodlecharms. I did not use Design Studio or a gypsy. I just cut out two shadows (6 inches). Then the varying pieces of santas face in the corresponding colors. Then I glued the "flesh" santa onto one of the blackouts. Then cut off the hat area and applied all the extra pieces to finish him off. I then glued the edges only of the two shadow pieces. Then I fit a small piece of black cardstock in the "pocket" then sandwiched it between the two hat pieces and glued them together. Then cut a small white pices of card stock with fancy scissors and viola! Oh and I pop doted the mustache and then on top of those pop dots I pop dotted the nose. I can't wait to do this again, but I think I'll wait until I get DS because I hate having to cut all the pieces just for one piece in one color... And next time I'm going to emboss the beard and mustache with D'vine swirls...

The cute little stamp on the inside came free when I ordered the face stamps from peachykeen and it is just too stinkin adorable!!

Thanks for looking!
