Santa Claus Is Coming To Town

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Being a brand new month it is time to introduce our challenge hostess for December, which is Lynn McAuley.

This is our last challenge for 2019, so everyone can enjoy spending time with family and friends over the Christmas Season. But we will be back in January for more challenges.

Our challenge this week is .... Santa Through the Window - For our last challenge Lynn is asking us to create a card that has a window. It will then be your choice on whether you want to be peeking IN on Santa or peeking OUT at Santa.  

For my card today I pulled out an older CC Designs stamp, which no longer is available as a stamp, but when I went searching for a link to add to my supply list below, it is available as a digital stamp if you want it.

I have always loved the Roberto's Rascals line of stamps from CC Designs, they look so like my grandchildren and this one is a favorite too and you could say made for this challenge!!!

I stamped the image and then added a gold glittered frame over the image which uses Hero Arts Infinity Wood Frame die sets. 

I then added Crafter's Companion's Santa Edge'ables die set with it's coordinating stamp underneath.

For the inside of my card I created a pop up card using Karen Burniston's - KB Riley LLC Parcel Pop-up and Rocket Pop-up die sets. I figured this could be something that Santa left after visiting the little boy that is featured on the front of the card. Which is why I added the rocket and space themed images to my parcel.

I used the flap die from the Flap & Closure die set, to die cut the two curved edges on the green dotted patterned paper.

I also added the Merry Christmas die cut to the base of my card.

Here is a  quick video to see my card in action. 

Here is a side view of the inside of my card, so you can see the pop-up portion of the card a little better.
