Gather all of the materials needed before you begin.
Fold the card stock into two equal parts. This holiday Santa card is going to be made in portrait orientation. The folded card stock is the the card’s main body.
Cut a strip of red felt that is 1 1/2 inches long. The length depends on the width of the cover of the folded card stock. This is for Santa’s clothes.
Hot glue the red felt strip on the bottom of the card stock cover and cut off any felt that hangs over the edge of the card stock.
Cut a strip of black crafting felt that is 1 1/2 inches long. The length would be the same as the width of the card’s cover. This will serve as the belt of Santa Claus.
Place the belt in the middle of the red strip and hot glue it on the red body, again cutting off any extra felt that hangs over the edge of the cardboard.
Cut a small square from the yellow crafting felt that has the same dimensions as the width of the belt. This is the belt buckle. Fold the yellow felt in half and cut a smaller square in the middle of the belt buckle to create a center opening.
Hot glue the buckle of the belt in the middle of the belt.
Hot glue a pair of eyes in the middle of the card stock just near the top on top of Santa’s clothing. The eyes should be placed on the the upper third of the card, near the top.
Cut a small round piece of red felt for Santa’s nose.
Hot glue the nose just below the eyes.
Roll several pieces of cotton in the palm of your hands. If you are using cotton balls, then you can skip this step.
Cover the sides of Santa’s face with cotton balls to make the beard.
Glue the cotton balls on the sides and the bottom of the neck part of the Santa on the card to create a thick, long white beard.
Create a pair of glasses from the copper wire using the rounded long nose pliers. Cut off the excess wire.
Hot glue the glasses just in front of Santa’s eyes. Make sure to place them in a leaning position towards the nose of Santa. Hold these in place until the glue dries so the glasses do not end up laying flat.
Cut a Santa cap from the red crafting felt.
Hot glue the red cap on the top of the card above Santa’s eyes. Make sure to leave a some space in between the Santa’s face and the cap so these is room to give Santa some hair.
Add more cotton balls in the space between the cap and his eyes. This is Santa’s hair.
Hot glue a cotton ball on the tip of Santa’s hat.
Write a personal holiday greeting inside the card and if there is not enough room, write a separate note and attach it with a pretty sticker or a piece of tape.
Allow the card to dry throughly and then this charming Three-Dimensional Santa greeting card can be given to a friend or a family member!
