I created this set of fun Picture Book die Christmas cards (using Picture Book Santa, Snowman and Reindeer). I love how playful these dies are! The supporting sentiment and images with the Picture Book dies are from Simon’s Fa La La stamp and die sets.

Some other fun things I incorporated into these cards are the beautiful plaid papers from Lawn Fawn’s Perfectly Plaid Christmas collection; those are die cut with a Memory Box Wrapped Stitches die

And see the stunning glitter sentiments on each card? Those were cut from DCWV Mat Glitter Pastels cardstock; simply GORGEOUS! I love glitter, especially on holiday cards! 

Each of my little critters also feature Nuvo Drops from Tonic Studios on their eyes, noses and accessories.

    I love these adorable dimensional Christmas cards….I am going to be using these dies a lot this season. As for my favorite…..I just can’t pick one. I love all the Christmas stamps. I will be using Sunny Studios Christmas Home, lawn fawn sets, I have them all and an old favorite of mine, is the SSS Holy Family stamp set.

    I love your cards, the deer is adorable!! Gosh, I have so many Christmas stamps and it’s hard to pick just one. I really am loving the SSS Stained Glass Greetings.

    I love your cards! I only just discovered that you can colour die-cuts with copic markers (I always struggled getting a skin-coloured cardstock) and now to watercolour them! I love that it adds so much character to them! Thank you so much for sharing this fantastic technique!
    My favourite Christmas stamp set? I have so many as I love Christmas… but my current favourites would be SSS Scripty Holiday Greetings & Believe sets, MFT Happy Pawlidays and any stamp set with poinsettias.

    My very favourite stamp sets are Sunny Studio’s Christmas town and Sunny Studio’s Christmas chapel. And I love your cards, Nina Marie.

    I commented earlier but completely FORGOT to answer the question! What a dingleberry, right?!? Anyway, back again to answer. I also like the Christmas Home from Sunny Studio, along with the Polar Pals, the Christmas Chapel, and another favorite is Hero Arts Wintertime Fun. Have a nlessed day!

    Awesome cards ! My favorite Christmas stamps set is, of course, one of the last one I got : from Your Next Stamp, the Merry Mouse Eve.

    Cute, but I still prefer a Christian based them–cards that also go along with our Christian themed Christmas tree.
