Santa Claus is Comin' to Town!

Everybody loves Santa, and, if you've already had a look at the Readers' Gallery, you can plainly see that not only does every holiday cardmaker seemingly have at least a few supplies which feature Santa; they've also got a clever idea or two on how to use them extra-creatively! Here are three examples which especially caught our eye:

...hand-colored all of the elements of her super-cute Santa die not once, not twice, but FOUR times (so you should definitely check out her second post as well!) and one of her brilliant secrets for completing a bunch of designs quickly is to use holiday journal cards as backgrounds!

...dressed her sweet Santa --all the other elements of her card from the tree ,to the sentiment, to the Christmas candies-- IN PINK which (in our humble opinion!) automatically makes this adorable card even more fun and festive!

...cleverly used silhouette-style die cuts in realistic colors of plain cardstock to create this simple-but-fantastic scene of Santa's sleigh, soaring above the rooftops on a snowy Christmas Eve!

Many thanks to everyone who played along, we loved seeing all of your super-star Santa cards! We'll be back at midnight with a brand new prompt that we hope will help you take STOCK of your Christmas supplies!
