Shaking Santa card
Shake up a retro-looking Santa Claus with a modern, clean and simple twist. Simply build Anita’s Santa’s Sack Foiled Decoupage sheet, throw in a handful of sequins and you will have this clever and colourful little number.
1. Die cut a circle into the centre of a panel of white 12.8 x 12.8cm cardstock with the Xcut Circle Nesting Dies. Fix a square of Papermania 12 x 12'' Plain Acetate to the reverse to create a window. Trim a square of Craft Planet 9 x 12'' White Funky Foam Sheet slightly smaller than the white panel and die cut a slightly larger circle into the centre. Attach this to the back of the window, over the acetate, ensuring there is enough room around the edge of the aperture for the sequins to shake. Scatter a handful of Craft Planet Sequin Mix Assorted Colours in the centre and attach a white 13.5 x 13.5cm, top-facing card blank over the back.
2. Create a frame for the rim of the circle on the front of the card with gold paper from the Create Christmas A4 Glitter Paper Pack by laying two circle nesting dies one inside the other, ensure the gap is even all the way around and hold in place with a little craft tape. Run through the die-cutting machine and fix around the aperture.
3. Build Santa’s face from the Anita’s Santa’s Sack Foiled Decoupage sheet with Stick it! 3D Foam Dots and pop to the right of the aperture.
4. Stamp 'Ho ho ho' onto a strip of black cardstock using an Artiste Clear Emboss Pigment Ink Pad and heat set Papermania Gold Embossing Powder. Diagonally snip the left end of the strip and fix underneath the Santa with foam dots. Finish with a few sequins.
