Santa & Elves at the North Pole

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Joanne Grzelak our challenge hostess for the month continues to issue the challenges.

This week we are going to make a card for our holiday stash. You can make a Christmas card, a New Year’s card, or a winter card…..whichever you think you need the most for your stash. 

As you can see, I decided to make another Christmas card for our challenge this week. I used the Sleigh Pop-Up die set from Karen Burniston which gives you the option of making a normal style pop up card where you have the card at 90 degrees or a pop stand (flat) style where you have the card at 180 degrees. I went for the second option for this card.

To decorate my card I used Riley and Company's Dress Up Riley; Dress Up Riley Christmas Outfits and Tucker the Dog. 

On both edges of my card I added a snow border from the Nature Edges die set also from Karen Burniston. I covered the snow with Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter. I also added the North Pole Sign which is a stamp/die set from Hero Arts.

On the edge that is the front view of the card, I added the "Merry Christmas" from the Words Set 3 Holidays die set.

Here is another view of the inside of my card. "Santa" and the "Reindeer" are only seen from the front view of the card, not from the other side.

For the front of my card I added another border of snow from the Nature Edges die set. 

I added the Paper Layering Wooden Door to the left side of the card and another sign to the door using the North Pole Sign Stamp/die set.

On the right hand side of the card I added another of the Dress Up Riley images, this time dressed as an elf.
