Campin' Critters - Creation #6

I decided to finally make my Christmas card using "Campin' Critters."  In fact, I made two of them with this cartridge.  Here they are:
Both cards are 5 1/2"x4 1/4."  I used white cardstock
for their bases.  The dark blue snowflake mats are 5 3/8"x4 1/8."  I cut another white mat for each card at 4 1/4"x3" and a light blue snowflake mat at 4"x2 7/8."  The snowflake patterned papers are from the DCWV Arctic Wishes Stack.  I rounded the corners of the small mats.  I used a stamp from My Craft Spot for the sentiment on both cards.  It came from the "Tis the Season" set.  I stamped it with rich cocoa ink by Tsukineko.  This whole panel was added to the card base with foam tape.

For the deer card I cut a piece of glittery white cardstock at 3" wide and rounded its bottom corners.  I then hand cut it into a curvy shape to simulate a snow bank.  The skiing deer is the cut I used from "Campin' Critters" and is on page 29 of the handbook.  I cut it at 2 1/2."  I finished off this card with three snowflake shaped buttons.

I used the snowmobiling fox cut for my other card.  This little guy is on page 53 of the handbook and is cut at 2 1/4."  I finished off this card with three silver gems.
I used the sketch at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown for both of my cards.
