Cute Critter Cards!

The inspiration for these cards came from my wonderful upline, Kamila.  She made a darling card like this for our recent Team Swap.  She used the reindeer from Not A Creature Was Stirring Stamp set.  I used the fox from the Fall In The Forest stamp set.  All these little critters are so adorable!

Snowflake Merry Christmas

I saw this idea on Pinterest and I was anxious to try it using Amuse Studio products.  I would like to make a few more and use different colors of ink for the snowflake.  

Amuse Studio Products:     SHOP AMUSE STUDIO 

Stamps:  Snowflakes, Very Merry
Card stock:  Sugar, Onyx, Recollections Black for die cuts
Ink:  Onyx Versafine
Other:  Quickie Glue Pen, Merry Die, Clear Twinkle Stickers

I cut one merry die using Sugar card stock and three more using the Recollections Black card stock.  This is so that you see the black layers underneath. It looks really cool!  

I also masked off the word Christmas from the Hello Christmas (see below) which worked out perfectly!

Gift Card Holders

These Gift Card Holders were inspired by Kristina Werner.  If you haven't been watching her Holiday Card Series, I highly recommend it.  She offers so much inspiration and I just love watching her create cards and other Holiday projects. She made an envelope for this Gift Card holder as well which I did not do because I wanted to show off as much Amuse Studio product as possible!  
The measurement for the Gift Card Base is 6 ¼" x 3 ¾".  Score at 2" and then flip the card stock and score at 1 ¾".  I didn't use glue to seal the pockets on any of the gift card holders.  I used either Washi Tape or brads to secure the pocket for the gift card.
