MERRY CHRISTMAS DIY HOLIDAY CARDS

Hello all, today I am showing you how I made this set of Christmas Cards.
So far I've made 6 of them and I still have a few more to go.
I used cardstock from the Basis Collection (red) and Pop Tones (green). The white is a linen cardstock called Solar White and the brown used on the deer is from a Core-dinations pack.


The card bases or frames were cut using the Fancy Frames Cricut cartridge and My World for the Christmas trees. (Please, do not mind the trees to the left, most of the time I choose die cuts I end up not using).  I cut a few bases, embossed the background, did some distressed inking and stamped some snowflakes and stamped a design on the trees.


I wanted some snow banks behind the deer and I found a cute one in the Give a Hoot cart. I spread some Tombow liquid glue with my fingers on the surface (I should have used a cheapy brush) and then covered with Diamond Dust. 
The deer I die cut with a Cottage Cutz die. 


I glued the tree to the background using Tombow again and added some sequins too. I added the snow bank and the deer and then I decided to cut some acetate and use it as windows for some of the cards. The green card above is one of them. To attach the acetate I chose score tape.


 I do not know which one I like the most. I think they both came out very nice.
(This red one has no acetate on the front).
The greeting is from a Joy Clair stamp and its digital die. 


A few more pics.


And, that is all for today. 
I hope you were able to get some ideas for your holiday cards and or decorations.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
