Winter Wonderland

Winter Wonderland

I was inspired by the “Sizzix Christmas In July” Challenge over at to start some Christmas projects early! There was a lot of fussy cutting involved, but it was worth it in my opinion! Those birds and houses (Crate Paper “Snow and Cocoa” line) are just too darn cute!

I don’t know if I should classify this as a card or as decoration, so I’m going to call it #Card_Deco! It put me in mind of my childhood. My parents had a string that hung across the beam in our living room, and every year they would hang the Christmas cards we received on it. Friends and family became part of our Christmas decor!

The very front of the card is rather straight forward! The “Wonderland” piece is from Crate Paper, the card stock is American Crafts, everything else are Hip Kit Club Exclusives!
Lots of fussy cutting found here (well not necessarily “lots,” but for me it is!) And if I haven’t said it before, I’ll say it now, I am IN LOVE with the Distress Oxides! I’ve had all these papers since November/December (2016), but I hadn’t figured out exactly how to use them. Apparently they were waiting for Tim Holtz’s Distress Oxides!

That little fawn was cut from some scrap white card stock I had using the “Retro Deer” die from Simon Says Stamp. I just trimmed off the antlers and added some spots so he could match his Mama! (Hip Kit Club Exclusive Die Cuts – the doe & the mushrooms)
