Card 1: Three Choir Mice

These cute mice are singing Christmouse carols.  This card is a pocket card—you can include a gift card, tea packet or other little gift inside.  The silver foil was embossed with musical notes using the Merry Melody 3D embossing folder.  You can color their winter wear in colors of your choice, listed in the recipe are the ones I chose.  So cute!

Card 2: Yeti Christmas

This friendly Yeti is enjoying some hot chocolate while on his way to deliver a gift.  To tuck the gift into his arm, use an Exacto knife to cut a slit along the upper portion of this arm.  Then you can insert the gift and use a mini dimensional at the top to secure it in place.  Although the Yeti dies are no longer available for purchase, the shapes can be cut out manually using snips.  (The Yeti dies were available for a limited time in September as part of the Perfect Partners special.)  The DSP used on this card is from Celebrate Everything and will also be featured on the next two cards.  Have a Yeti Christmas!

Card 3: Holly Holidays

This card features the Celebrate Everything DSP with double framing and a Polished Pink card base to give it some pop.  The holly leaves were cut out of the Granny Apple Green frame to make the most use of the cardstock.  Any sentiment can be used with the appropriate sized banner, I chose this one from the Christmas to Remember stamp set.

Card 4: Spruced Up Trees

The Spruced Up Bundle (Spruced Up stamp set and Spruced Up Outlines dies) was used to create this card.  Each tree was stamped in the coordinating color in the middle of the frame cardstock piece (i.e., granny apple green ink and cardstock; shaded spruce ink and cardstock).  Then each stamped tree was die cut—the die creates the center solid tree and the thin frame tree.  The stars were cut using the Spruced up dies too.  And the DSP is from the Celebrate Everything pack.  You can choose to layout your trees in many ways so pick what you like best and happy decorating.
