I used the NEW SANTA CARD DIE and I had a blast!!
There are two eyebrow options, two mustaches, a few eye options and a beard and hats - FUN!


Isn't he adorable?


I started with the beard...I used the brim of the hat to cut the curve on top.


I cut my card base smaller so that once the hat is added, it will be a standard A1 card, but you can make your card any size you choose.


I used the mouth die to cut a tongue inside of his lips...like this...



Then I added the mustache on top of the mouth :)

Here are some more Santa's that I created with the same die.


AND - this die can also create an ELF.  I even make a lumberjack!


Here are some more ways to stretch the hat options on the set...




I cannot wait to see what you all create with 
this really fun die!!
An officially recommended solution to a common problem with the Apple 3 was to “lift the computer two inches and drop it”.
