Merry Monday ~ Santa

I'm playing along with this week's Merry Monday challenge where the theme is "Santa". MFT came out with a fun little die set to make these amazing Santa suits. Unfortunately, I didn't get the set but I thought I'd see what I could do to replicate my own using dies I already had. Easy Peasy!

I simply cut a white strip and a black strip of cardstock for both his belt and the trim of his suit. The buttons were cut using button stax. The buckle of Santa's belt was cut using one of MFT's Blueprints dies. I added a glittery snowflake, a candy cane cut from PTI's Candy Cane Christmas and a little black bow from another Blueprints die.

Here's another card I made using the same idea.

It's always a fun challenge for me to see how I can make similar cards using supplies that I already own. The MFT Santa Suit set is still on my wish list though...

I'm also adding one of these cards to the following challenges:
