Santa shaker with foil hat by Diane Zechman

Hello Ai friends and happy Thursday!
Halloween may be upon us, but we all have Christmas in the back of our mind, don't we?  Have you started on your holiday cards yet?  Today I am sharing a CAS card using the new Santa Mini Shaker (4798) which includes matching dies (plus a mini wobble to get you started)!  When the Christmas crunch is on, I appreciate cards with a simple design to make creating multiples fast & easy!  This card fits the bill and has a few extra touches to make it stand out.

The first "ho" is a die included the set and the other two were stamped.  The mustache is also an included die and it's perfect on a Mini Action Wobble!  You can also pop it up with foam adhesive.
I also made his hat shiny with some Thermoweb foil and adhesives.  The foil can be adhered using the liquid glue but I decided to use the Sticky Tape Runner on the backside of my stamped hat and apply the Red Foil Transfer Sheet to that.  Then I ran it through my die cut machine to apply pressure only, peeled off the foil liner, cut it out by hand, and glued it to my image.

Here's some pics to show the shiny red foil and wobbly 'stache...

Have a great day and… happy stamping!
