Deer Tag Christmas Cards

Each year I make my own Christmas cards as a tradition. Sometimes I design them in Illustrator and let them print off, but they are always designed by me. This year I used my Silhouette Cameo. I drew the moose heads in Illustrator and send them off to my Cameo. Boy do I love this piece of equipment. It does not only cut paper, but also fabric and vinyl. The decals were made on the cameo as well. For those who have one at home, you can download the moose tags right here.

I’ve used 220 gr A4 card-stock to cut out the tags using a 12″ x 12″ mat for the Cameo. I’ve made the felt balls for noses myself using this technique.

I’ve used bakers-twine for strings and I wrote a short message on the back, as simple as “Boris and Yvonne” – we don’t do long Christmas letters in this household. Pop them in a cute envelop and send them to those you love. I never over send my Christmas cards, just to family and to people who float my boat.

    Your deers are adorable. Great idea to make these Christmas cards. I had never heard about a Silhouette Cameo.
    It seems a great machine.

    Deer Greetings, Margaret

    I love these… as does my little(ish) boy! He has asked that we make them this year but as he has been super organised and already written his cards (!) we shall save this idea for next year. And yes to not over sending Christmas cards – perfectly put!

      Do you own a Cameo? It’s a specific file to be used on a Cameo.

    Deze zijn echt te schattig! Vooral die neusjes, ga het filmpje even bekijken over de vilten balletjes.
