Here is the Barista Santa card I made for my daughter, Jenni,  who is a Starbucks manager.  This one is made much as Colleen's UPS Santa Card as well as my Elf Punch & Elf Redeux Cards .  You can also get the directions for the Gift Certificate / Money Holder on the Colleen's UPS Santa Card post.  The phrase and coffee cups inside are from the Cold & Cuddly set and the snowmen, etc., are from the Snow Buddies set.  These sets will retire on January 4th, so be sure to get yours before then!  Off to finish my wrapping...

As in previous punch art cards, many of my punches are done "on the edge" of cardstock with second punches done above and/or around the first cuts.  See previous punch art cards for pictures of these methods.
  • Santa Hat – Punch Wide Oval from Real Red and then nipped a piece out with the Large Oval Punch. Then I placed the brim where I wanted it and trimmed off the Real Red portion that showed below the brim. For the Brim, cut a small portion with the Large Oval Punch as shown. Then punch around that cut with the Scallop Oval so that the Brim looks as shown. Use one Trio Flower punch for the pom pom.
  • Face – Punch one Ornament (head) and one 3/8" Circle from Blush Blossom. For mouth, nip a small piece from the edge of Pretty in Pink with 1/2" Circle punch.  Punch again just barely above this to cut a small smile sliver.  For eyes, punch two Whisper White and two Chocolate Chip 3/8" holes with Crop-a-Dile. Adhere black onto white offset so white is showing below Chocolate Chip. For ears, cut two ends of Word Window punch "on the edge" of Blush Blossom card stock and adhere under head.  The neck is one half of a Word Window punch.
  • Hair – Three Scallop Oval punches from Chocolate Chip.  For bangs, punch one Scallop Oval again with Ornament Punch for approximate amount of bangs you would like to show. 
  • Earrings – With the Crop-a-Dile,  punch 1/8" hole "on the edge" of Brushed Silver and then punch around this hole with the 3/8" side. 
  • Shirt – Wide Oval Punch from Basic Black for the body of the shirt.  Snip a V-neck into it with the Large Star punch.  Punch one Small Oval from Basic Black and cut in half for the sleeves of the shirt.
  • Shirt Collar – Punch two of the smallest heart from the Heart to Heart and then trim to look as shown.
  • Arms – Punch two of the Medium Heart from the Heart to Heart punch.
  • Pants – Two Modern Labels punched form Basic Black.  Then I nipped off the curved portions with the 1 1/4" Square punch.
  • Shoes – One Butterfly punch from Basic Black, cut in half.  I then cut off some more on each one and drew laces on with the White Signo Gel Pen.
  • Apron  – One 1 3/8" Square from Glorious Green for the bottom of the apron with the top two corners punched with the Ticket Corner Punch topped by a 3/4" square.  I printed out some Starbucks logo from the computer in various sizes and cut to fit the apron and adhered.
  • Coffee Cups – Punch two "cups" from Real Red with the Word Window Punch.  I did two different height ones.  For the cup sleeve cozies,  I punched a small portion of the 1/2" Circle on the edge of Kraft cardstock and then punched again above and around the first punch.  I adhered a Starbucks logo and adhered to the coffee cup.  Then I trimmed the cozies to be slightly wider than the cups.  For the lids of the cups, I punched a 1/2" circle from Kraft.  Then I put the circle on a post-it and punched again to make the circle narrower like a football shape.  Then I trimmed off the points of the football shapes to round it slightly.
