Make this cute Santa Card for the holiday season that is shaped as Santa’s head.

The Santa Card is made to look 3d using foam dots. This is a simple but fun card to make using card stock and your Cricut, even a beginner can make this. I used glitter card stock for the white on his hat and the pom pom to give it some sparkle.

Homemade cards are always a great gift to send to someone during the holiday season. As homemade cards are a gift from the heart.

because I wanted the hat pom pom and other white hat piece to be cut out of white glitter card stock, I changed which mat they are on

first select the pom pom

Santa card move the pom pom to a new mat

click on the three dots "..." and then select move object

then click on a new mat and click on continue

Santa card choose a new mat color

then select a color that hasn't been used for the new mat and click continue

then go back to the mat with the other hat piece and do the same

then a revised prepare screen will appear

make sure to move your two hat pieces close together

Now if everything looks correct on it, click on the continue button
The next screen will be where you will select the type of card stock you are using. If you do not see the material in your material favorites, click on "browse all materials" to find the weight of cardstock that you are using. For example the white Cardstock I used is medium weight, you will need to select "Medium Weight"..
Once you have Design Space set, you are now ready to prepare your mat. I used a brayer when placing the Cardstock on the mat, this helps in making sure that the paper is adhered to the mat and will help in keeping the paper from ripping or moving when it is being cut.
