Christmas Card Using CTMH Frosted Paper Pack

Hello friends.  Happy Holidays to everyone.  I have been creating Christmas cards.  I am still working on CTMH Frosted Cardmaking Kit; but wanted to share a card I created using the CTMH Frosted Paper Pack.  I love this paper.  It is so gorgeous in person.
I wanted to create a card for my son and his family with a buck silhouette; because they all hunt deer in deer season.  My grandson got one this year; but not sure about his mom or dad.  I couldn't shoot a deer; but they eat the meat all year long.  I found this stamp with Stampin Up; so I decided to get it and another one with sentiments and a dove.  These two were my first stamps to try with Stampin Up. 
I thought their Clear stamps meant they were like our CTMH stamp sets; where you can actually see through them when stamping; but I found out they are the thick red rubber stamps.  I realized they say they are clear because they actually attach to the clear blocks.  I am spoiled with being able to see where I am stamping and had a few challenges with these.  I had trouble stamping straight; but that is because I am used to the see through stamps.  LOL!  They are very pretty stamp sets and I really like them. 
I have been buying Spellbinders die cuts and really having fun with them.  I used both the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge and two different Spellbinders dies.  I love combining the different dies with the CTMH Cricut cartridges.  It makes creating so much easier with both.  I was following Mojo Monday Sketch; but I think I made a mistake and it was supposed to be a little different than this; but included it anyway; since it was the inspiration behind my card.  I hope you enjoy my Christmas card. 

Inside Card

This inspired me; but I didn't quite do it right.  I thought the paper was all the way across in my mind and then realized after I glued it that it was only supposed to partially cover the area.

Supplies used to create this card:

Die Cuts -  Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge (sentiment base and outside image)
Large  printed snowflake inside -  Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge
Spellbinders A2 Distressed Edges and Gold Corner Sets One
Cardstock and Paper - CTMH Frosted  
Punch - Large snowflake is Martha Stewart and small one is Recollections.
Ink - CTMH Saddle
Bling - CTMH Frosted Card Making Kit
Stamp for Deer head - Stampin Up Remembering Christmas (I had to have this deer silhouette.)
Stamp for sentiments - Stampin Up Calm Christmas (Loved these Sentiments)
