See how beautiful – and easy – white on white handmade Christmas cards are to make!

This is not my first idea for white on white handmade Christmas cards. I love the look of white on white and have lots of projects here for you to see. And one of my all-time most popular cards is very similar to this one with white on white, touches of red and beautiful elegant deer. It was one that I created for batch making and so many of you told me that you, too, mass produced that card and I was so happy!

Today’s card is a touch different from my previous version, using the centered Full Tree paired with the Deer Family #2, Deckle Hills, Greenery #1 and Small Birds. I love that it is just different enough yet uses the same basic elements.

Card Base, Tree and Snow Layers

  • Use White cardstock cut an A2 sized card base and a 5.50″ x 4.25″ layer.
  • Use the snow fall embossing folder to emboss the white layer and attach it to the card bae using ATG adhesive.
  • Cut two Deckle Hill layers using white cardstock and run them through the wave crimper.
  • Attach one snow layer directly to the card base using ATG adhesive.
  • Use a strip of mounting tape to attach the front snow layer.
  • Cut the Full Tree using white cardstock, tuck it in behind the snow layer and attach using thin strips of mounting tape.

Deer, Greenery Branches and Birds

  • Use white cardstock to cut the Deer Family and Greenery branches.
  • Cut a few greenery tips using green cardstock and a few punch red circles.
  • Attach the greenery tips and red circles to the deer necks using glossy accents.
  • Tuck the larger deer in behind the snow layer and attach using a piece of mounting tape.
  • Apply a piece of mounting tape to the back of the small deer and a touch of glossy accents to it’s feet and attach it to the snow layers.
  • Finish by cutting the Small Birds using red cardstock and attach them to the scene using tiny pieces of mounting tape.

I thought I would share a picture of the older card to show you how fast and easy a card like this is to make.  Cutting and organizing all the pieces in advance lets you fly through the process.  For this card I used the Half Tree and Deer Family #1 and I’ve linked those in my Linkdeli as well.  You get to choose if you like the side tree or the centered tree and you can, of course, mix and match the snowbank styles and the deer. That’s one of the great things about this white on white look – anything you add will just enrich the look without distractions.
