Today I have 3 different ideas using the same basic theme -
Here they are....
# 1 - Santa Suit Card - This is really easy, simply start off with a red card base, add a vertical 1" wide strip of white cardstock in the center of the card. Add a 1/2" strip of black crossing the white near the bottom third of the card. Finally add the yellow/gold buckle. I have a die that will cut this but you can just as easily cut it by hand.
# 2 - Santa Suit Ornament - Another fun ornament idea which is made using felt. I started off by cutting 2 round pieces from red felt. I then glued on the white & black strips as well as the yellow buckle to the front of one circle. I added a layer of padding between the two circles and used a blanket stitch to sew the two together. I used black thread but you could use red or white as well. I used a nifty little clip I had in my stash for the hanger but you could use gold stretch cord, embroidery thread, etc. for the hanger.
# 3 is a Gift Card or ATC Holder. You will find the pattern below (either jpeg or PDF). It's 8.5" long so you can get 3 from one sheet of cardstock. The gift card is a bit smaller than an ATC but will still work great. You can either add a dab of repostitionable adhesive or velcro for the closure to hold it shut.

I've still got a few more ideas concerning Santa's Suit but a different article of clothing ;)
Can you guess which article of clothing that might be???
You'll have to wait and see!
Ho Ho Ho...
