Top Note Santa Ornament & Gift Card

Hi Stampers,
Here is an adorable and fun duo purpose project.  This Santa Top Note Ornament also serves as a Gift Card.  I made this with the use of the Stampin Up Top Note Die and a few Stampin Up Punches.  Give this to someone with an attached Gift on the back, and afterwards they can hang it on the tree as an ornament.  I loved working on this today with my class, I hope you enjoy it too.  Leave me a comment and let me know what you think...


Cut (1) Top Note 
  • Real Red CS #102482 (for hat and tassel and use leftover paper to punch out (1) Mosaic Punch )
  • Pink Pirouette #111351 (for face and partial body and nose)
Cut (3) Top Note
  • Whisper White CS #100730 (one for beard, hat trim and the (2)birds for the mustache, second for the backing behind all of the parts when it is all assembled, and third is used for 1/2 of a top note for the gift card holder)
Cut out as noted
  • Basic Black # 121045 (small scrap piece for the 1/2' circle punched eyes)
  • Old Olive #100702 (small scrap for (2) of the Holly punches)
  • Red Glimmer Paper #121790 (punch out (2) circles using the 1/2” circle punch)
NOTE: Cut out pieces as laid out below. (HINT: I used outside of the #8 die from the Oval Framelits Collection for the curve on the pieces) Made the nose and Mosaic from the left over pieces from the top of pink and bottom of the red.
