Casing Santa

Hello all,
I hope this finds you well and having a lovely weekend.
I had a wonderful day yesterday all to myself so I spent it in the conservatory making some final Christmas cards! Today is all about trying to finish off my Christmas shopping-and I think I'm almost there now thank goodness-so wish me luck!
My card today is made for my nephew who is 8 and I couldn't think what I was going to make for him- I was sat with my cup of coffee, looked at my mug and suddenly thought 'wow, that would make a good card'!!
I used some red card as the base, die cut a little white Christmassy strip for the top and bottom and punched some buttons and holly. His belt was made with my ribbon punch from Hobbycraft, a lovely simple one but I think he'll like it as he just LOVES everything Christmas:

and here is my mug I cased:

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
