Oh Deer Christmas Cards!


Are you ready for more sparkly Christmas goodness? The Oh Deer papers are soft, winter colors. I've paired one of the papers with gold and white glitter paper and gold embossing powder for sparkly winter wonder!

These cards are super simple and perfect to introduce to my crafty girls at work! It's unfortunate, but the pictures really don't do these justice. They are beautiful monochromatic, glittery splendor!


One side of the paper has pine cones and evergreen branches. I've added a couple of snowflakes using our Thin Cuts - Snowflakes and added some retired Gold Glitter Gems to the center!

The other side of the paper has deer in the woods. Even though the deer are randomly placed, going in all directions, it's unfortunate the gold deer is upside down on this card! (I wish I would have changed that before I took the picture!)

I added a white glitter snowflake on top of the large gold glitter snowflake on this card.

I'll be offering this workshop to my girls at work and my monthly club at home. But it is something you can EASILY do on your own at home! Simply add the Christmas sentiment of your choice and a glittery sparkle to the center of the snowflakes!

Swan Lake Cards!

The cards you can create with the Swan Lake Workshops Your Way feature our Thankful For Your Thin Cuts and stamp bundle!
Here are the cards. Adorable, right?

Some people LOVE the swans! Some just don't get it! So I took these same card patterns and added our Hello and Thanks thin cuts to them instead of the swans. Here is what I came up with:


I used some gold glitter paper for the sentiments on these cards. And again, I flipped over the swan side of the paper to reveal the flowers!


I used a couple of left over PML cards from the kit on these two:

Very simple, but I like how they turned out. Just by substituting the swans for a thin cut word instead!
You can find the Hello and Thanks thin cuts on my website here.

Happy Creating!
