CCEE1450 Starring Santa

This is the last CCEE Stampers challenge for 2014, and we were asked to make a card starring Santa.  I'm not sure my card is "starring" Santa, but there is a Santa on it.  My neighbor had asked me to make her a card to give to her brother.  She wanted a particular type of card -- a pop-up box card, and it needed to contain several specific elements:  a poinsettia, the Three Wise Men, and Santa kneeling at the manger.  After much thought, I remembered my SU set called Holy Triptych, which I thought had the right type of images for the "pop up" elements.  I did not have a stamp of a kneeling Santa, so I Googled it and found many images.  I printed off one, cut it out, and glued it to one of the folding down panels.  There actually is a poinsettia on the card, but it's hidden behind the kneeling Santa panel.


Please go over to the CCEE Stampers blog and see all of the Santa cards created by the rest of the team.

Oh my goodness, Lois! This would have taken me all of 2014 to make something like this. Just awesome. Merry Christmas to you, my friend.

That is amazing! I must say that personally I struggle with commissioned cards because it can be so hard to fit in all the required elements that it takes the joy out of it. But you certainly seem to have rocked this. I like Holy Triptych - I bought it used from someone on SCS but gave it to a friend I knew would use it more. They're beautiful images, though.
