Snow Angel Christmas Card

This is my first Christmas card made entirely with an Imagine cartridge and I really like the way it turned out. 
1.  I cut the girl in the sleigh figure using the "layers" option at 3 inches, I can't remember the measurement for the deer, but I did have to size him down in order for him to be proportional to the sleigh. I cut 2 or 3 layers of each piece to give the design some dimension.
2.  I added snowflakes (cut from a punch) and faux stitching to the background paper.  Rhinestones were added to the center of each snowflake.  For the bottom half of the background, I cut a piece of glittery white paper and ran it through my Cuttlebug using the Divine Swirls folder.
3.  I glued my layers together, leaving off the top mitten on the girl's hand and pop-dotted everything to the card.  I tied small bells to a piece of white cord to run from the deer to the girl's hands to look like reins. Then I glued the other mitten on top to cover the reins.  I cut a small scrap to make a collar for the deer to cover those reins.
4.  Finishing touches - lots of Stickles on the sleigh and deer's blanket.  I also added gems to the center of each flower on the sleigh and to the deer's collar.

Inside of card

I cut a second, small deer and added him to the inside of the card.  I used a stamp from Michael's dollar bin and inked up the edges of the card.

I plan to submit this card to the "Letter S" Challenge on the Cricut Cardz Blog
