The Kardashians are no strangers to spending insane amounts of money — $11 million on a mansion here, a $125,000 car there — what's it matter? But their budget for holiday cheer is so astronomical, it would knock Santa right out of his sleigh.

The family, just unveiled their most recent Christmas card, a futuristic, high fashion shoot captured by famed photographer David LaChappelle. Of course they all look stunning in the photo — and with good reason, considering the time and money that went into the picture.

A Kardashian insider claims that it took “three days just to put the set together. David was extremely involved in all details of the set installation. It was Kim’s idea to get David to do the family photo Christmas picture.”

RadarOnline.com reports that, although the card cost a whopping quarter million dollars to produce, the Kardashians didn’t even have to pull out their checkbooks to pay for the wild sum.

At first, David balked because he does photo shoots for major magazines, but Kim convinced him to do it. It wasn’t a cheap photo shoot, and the production company of Keeping Up With The Kardashians paid the $250,000 invoice. Hair, make-up, wardrobe, were all paid for by production, and the Kardashians didn’t pay one dime for their Christmas card!”
