Stampin' Up! FREE Santa Candy Cane Tutorial with Top Note Die Sale!!

HI friends, I finally go to making the Tutorial many of you have requested. Sorry between preparing for my workshop, getting long distance Club orders mailed and being sick, I have not  had a chance this week. 

Here are the materials needed:
Real Red Card Stock
Whisper White Card Stock
Marina Mist Card Stock
Pink Pirouette Cardstock
Skin Tone Card Stock- I used our retired Creamy Caramel
1/4" Real Read Grosgrain Ribbon

Top Note Die- Exclusive Die through Stampin' Up! only and a must have for this project!
1/2" Circle Punch
3/4" Circle Punch
1 " Circel punch
Modern Label punch
Embossing Folder of your choice
White Uniball Pen

1/4" Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon
Real Red Card Stock, Whisper White Cardstock
Real Red Ink
Scallop Square Punch
Felt from Holiday Mini Catalog or make your own embellishment

Cut out 3 Top Note Die shapes. Emboss your Whisper White Top Note cut out.
Also cut out a piece of Whisper White at about 2x4" and emboss. Check out the darling stitching. You can only get this with the Top Note Die

Now cut the red and the white to be about 1 1/2" and place over the skin toned Top Note die and adhere.This is your base face, hat and beard!
Save the red scraps for later

 From the 2"x4" Embossed white piece of Card stock, cut out 2 Modern Label punched pieces and a 1" circle. After placing the Mustache pieces on the face, I curled them with my scissors

Now for the fun part. Cut out two 1" white circles, two half 1" circles from the skin tone card stock, two 3/4" blue circles and two 1/2" black circles  and assemble. Use the White Uniball pen to add expression to the eyes. Don't forget to punch out a 3/4" Circle for the nose! 

From your red scraps, punch out a Scalloped Square 

Stamp with sentiment of your choice- I used Tag's Til Christmas Stamp Set
Tie with Real Red Ribbon

Use the remainder of the red scraps to form a triangle for the hat and add your 1" circle for the pom pom.

I added a felt piece but you can adorn with whatever

Here is a photo of one of the workshop girls, Lori, and what she did with her Santa. She asked to use my Eyelet Border punch and trimmed her hat differently and it was oh so cute! Wish I had though of that!

Adhere to your Candy Cane. I just used our Snail Tape Runner but you can use Sticky Strip or adhesive of your choice.

Ho Ho Ho!

So, I hope my Tutorial was helpful to you! If you do not have the Top Note Die and would like to purchase it, you may click on my Website below.
