Christmas in July Challenges

Christmas in July challenges over at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog and The Cuttlebug Spot  both are have great designers and I do love my cuttlebug embosser so I thrilled to get to enter my card into these challenges.

I used several Cricut cartridges for this Christmas Card design.

I started out with a deep royal red card stock for the card base just folded in in half giving  you a nice large surface to work with.

The trees where cut from Doodlecharms Cricut Cart using the border tab and pine green card stock to get  the roll of trees... Pop them up with double sided tape and off set from the cut out base to give them a forest feel.
The trees where embossed using my cuttlebug folder Christmas snowflakes.

The sweet deer was cut from Create a Critter using 2 1/2 size using a dark brown for layer 1 and lighter beige for layer 2. 
Basic black was use for deer base.
I love bling so I gave him a BIG rhinestone for his red nose.

With a poka dots background paper matched the color of my card perfectly.
 I cut the Merry Christmas from Beyond Birthdays Cricut Cart and shadowed with the same pine green used for the trees.
Love Christmas !!!

Hope you enjoy this card as much as I enjoyed making it...
