Last year I made this cute Santa Face for our Grandson for Christmas. I am truly sorry I cannot remember who I "cased" it from, please email me so I can give you proper credit. Anyways, it used some now retired stuff, so I had to retro fit it to the new colours and papers. Here is this year's version of Santa Head ......
I used Glossy White cardstock and a Texturz Plate from Texture Plates Kit #4 (item # 114531 - page 215 Stampin' Up! Main Catalogue - $13.25). These plates are double sided and you get 3 plates in the set, so that's 6 textures for one low price, you can't beat that! I think it looks like fur too.
And here is an upclose picture of his beard.....
Again I used Glossy White cardstock and another of the Texturz Plates, this time it is from Backgrounds 1 (Item # 114512 - Stampin' Up! Main Catalogue page 215 - $15.95) this set also has 3 plates that are double sided so you get 6 textures for one low price.
To make the cardstock stop slipping around when I added the Standard Texturz Silicone Rubber mat (Item # 114615 - page 205 Stampin' Up! Main Catalogue - $7.95) I put a bit of removeable adhesive on the cardstock and stuck it to the texture plate. It worked like a charm and I was able to get the swirls I wanted on his mustache!
If you order these Texturz Plates through my Online Store HERE I will send you one of these cards and the instructions on how to make it!
Here is the recipe for this awesome card (all supplies are Stampin' Up!):

Have fun creating this cute dude, and many thanks to whoever created him last year.
