Leaping Deer Christmas Cards!

Hello!  It's Anita and today I have some Christmas cards to share!  I am officially into Christmas card making mode!  And I am very excited for that!  Today I used Memory Box's die Leaping Deer along with Simple stories Handmade Holiday 6 by 6 pad !

Often when I make Christmas cards I make more than 1, especially if I really like the card.  I find it's a great way to have enough cards, this time I made 4:

I did two with the same sentiment, here are all four:

First I heat embossed the sentiment by Hero Arts with red powder and than overstamped with Frost White pigment ink by colorbox the Snowdots background stamp by Hero Arts.  I let it dry a bit and than took a wet paper towel and dabbed at the sentiment to get the white ink off of it.  I die cut the leaping deer with brown cardstock and cut two sheets of the simple stories pad into strips, border punching one of them.  I also swept each edge of the card with white ink.  Really happy with how this card turned out.  Love this Leapind Deer die, next time he's going to be Rudolf!  

I love how dies can makes crafting faster, I made up these cards this morning in between my mommy duties!
