I've got the moon on a string.

 
I hope you can get the idea of this card from the photo's.  The Santa Moon is wound up by twisting it in circles about 15 times so that when you open the card he will spin.  I used the cute Santa Moon and Seasons Greetings stamps from Scrolls Work.  I stamped the Santa Moon once on white card stock and again on clear acetate with Stazon black ink.  I used the back side of the acetate image so I could flip it in the other direction.   I colored in the skin tone on the front and back of the white cut out so it shows through the acetate.  I have a piece of fishing line secured with Zots going from the top inside if the card, through the moon and then underneath the foil which was embossed with a Cuttlebug Snowflakes embossing folder.  I used Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Circles Large to cut both the opening and the top of the foil.  I heat embossed the Seasons Greetings inside the card.  I used Stickles Silver to trim the scallops and the star.
