Christmas Card

I have a Christmas Card to share today.  I have promised myself to make at least one more Christmas card every month this year.  Hope I make it!

This was a fun and easy card!  I cut the wreath and deer on my brand new Silhouette Cameo, gift from my sweet hubby.  The rest is cut from a DCWV paper stack.  The borders (including the lacy look border on the front) came this way, perfect for this card.  I chose not to put a sentiment on the front because I liked the look of the papers as they are.

Please notice that this is NOT Rudolph!  No cutsie noses on this one!

Super cold here in northern Montana, actual temperature at or near zero, wind chill about 10 or 15 degrees lower.  Hope you are all warm and toasty wherever you are!


I am entering this card in the following challenges:
ABC Christmas Challenge  (A is for Animal)
Christmas Card Challenges  (Silhouette)
Jingle Belles     (all things new, i.e., my new Cameo)
Christmas Cards All Year Round (anything goes)
Make It Monday (always anything goes)
