Christmas in February Part 4

The next die cut sheet from "Cute Christmas Luxury Card Collection" has cute reindeer & penguins, and this time I got 5 cards from the single die cut sheet and coordinating card stock.  In this first card, the animals are taking a selfie.  I made this one into an interlocking gate fold card.  Simply attached the frame (with greeting attached) to one side of the gate fold - but not the other.  Then attached the picture to the other side - but not the first.  A quick and easy fun card.  I love this sparkly paper that I used.  It's DCWV paper called "Glitzy".  In the picture below, you can see what the card looks like when it's completely closed.

This next card was made using one of the coordinating sheets folded into a tri-fold card.  You can see that I added some die cuts on the inside.  The one on the front was from the 2016 Christmas Sentiments and I matted it with a large glittery snowflake Dazzle sticker.  I also added some Stickles to the card itself to make the snow sparkle on the trees  and the ground near them.

Card number 3 started with a pink card base.  I used a silvery paper for the mats & added die cuts.  The frame is popped up with foam squares for added dimension.

For the inside, I simply cut a piece of coordinating card stock with a pretty border.

The fourth card in this set was another interlocking gate fold card - this time turned horizontally.

I re-appropriated a white glitter card base for the flaps, since I didn't have plain white glittered card stock in my stash and the card base with white glitter was smaller than I wanted for this card.  The picture (with attached sentiment from 2016 Christmas Greetings) is attached only to the upper flap; the frame only to the lower.

I had thought I was done until I found the die cut on the front of this card:

It was a bit small for a card focal, so I double matted it using red and silver metallic card stocks - both cut with Spellbinders Decorative Labels Twenty-Two.  I threaded a strip of red metallic card stock through the silver mat, and added a small die cut from the 2016 Christmas Sentiments.

For the inside, I simply attached a narrow strip of red metallic card stock - and added another die cut from the 2016 Christmas Sentiments set.

That makes 5 cards from this die cut sheet and I still have a really nice frame that I'll use somewhere else, along with some extra coordinating card stock.
