Punch Art - Santa in Chimney

I look at this card with the snowflake background and am wishing for icy cold weather as we have 35 deg C today, down from 41 yesterday !!
Starting from the snow background, I used the CI-241 Crafty Individuals stamp in Archival French Ultramarine ink layered over with vellum to dull the effect.  The 'brick' effect for the chimney is a Creative Expressions Brick embossing folder darkened with Walnut Stain Distress ink.
Santa punch art :
Mittens - small Spellbinders Nested Eggs, trimmed with leftovers from a Cottage Cutz die
Hat - drawn and cut free hand (my art classes are paying off !)

Hat trim - middle sized Stampin Up oval punched out of sparkly white paper
Face - small sized Stampin Up oval
Moustache - Stampin Up Blossom Petals Builder punch
Nose and pom pom on hat- 5/16" circle SU
Eyes - from my stash - I have a whole packet of them already punched out

Additional :
Toy sack - PK-205 Feed, Santa or Flour Sacks stamped with Hero Arts Ancient Motif in Archival Sepia ink
Gifts - stamps unknown as have had them laying around in my Xmas stash for ages

The sentiment is Hero Arts Happy Holiday Trees in Archival Sepia on a retired Clear Dollar die.
