A Rustic Christmas

Finally the rain has stopped and the sun is shining. We've been getting so much rain (a continuation from spring and summer) and clouds! Yuk!! Christmas is just about a week away...and I have yet to go Christmas shopping. I am just so behind this year - I don't know why. :-/

Here's another card I made for Christmas..my first attempt with the Sizzix accordion die. So fun to decorate each panel. 

The paper is by The Paper Studios - Santa & Friends. Edges all inked with TH Vintage Photo.

Here's the front of the card. The sentiment is by TH Stampers Anonymous. The holly leaves are by Impression Obsession.

The tree is also a IO die. I added Viva Glitter Liner - Holo Iridescent to the snowflakes. 

Both the deer and fir tree are IO dies. I added Stampendous Shabby White embossing enamel for snow. 

The last panel - Leaping Deer - is a Memory Box die. 

I'm submitting this to the following challenges:
