Christmas Greetings Cards Making
This fun felt Santa Claus is a merry way to send good tidings at Christmas. Using our patterns, cut the pieces for Santa's beard and hat from red, green, pink, dark gray, and white felt. Cut a 5-1/2-inch circle from peach cardstock and glue to a same size piece of white cardstock - you'll write your Christmas greeting on the back. Starting with Santa's beard, glue on the white pieces of felt in layered rows, starting at the bottom of the card. Add the mustache, mouth, cheeks, and eyes.
Cut two 5-inch strips each from red, green, and pink felt. Braid together to form the two strings in Santa's hat, adhering each to the card about 2 inches from the bottom. Next, cut the middle part of the hat from green felt and attach each side to the card atop the braided felt. Cut the felt stripes from our pattern in the colors shown or in your own mix of colors, and adhere to the card. Add a festive sprig of felt holly with berries on top of Santa's hat to finish the card.
