We are so excited to finally have these home décor designs up on the site for you! This was a DIY project that we created for Cricut a while back (some of you might remember). Since then, we have received quite a few questions about when these designs would be available for our members. And today is the day! You can now officially download our papercut winter deer artwork.
The other three designs will be available over the next few weeks. So keep checking back if you want to make the whole set! It’s all original artwork, illustrated by our designer Krista.
Artwork to Fawn Over
The other day we talked about how easy it can be to create your own wall art. Our papercut winter deer artwork is another great example of how to decorate on a budget. And it’s a really quick and simple craft, too. All you need for this DIY home décor project is some cardstock, a frame, and your cutting machine.
This is a very detailed and intricate design, so we recommend using your cutting machine for this project. We initially only created an SVG file for this artwork, but we got a request to include a PDF template as well. So now there is a PDF download below if you want to cut this design by hand!
When you’re ready to make your own version of this papercut winter deer artwork, here are a few tips to keep in mind. We made it so our design would fit inside this 20″ x 20″ IKEA frame, but you can always resize it to fit a different frame size. The max size you can cut is 11.5″x11.5.” For the paper, we alternated between a natural white colored cardstock and a linen textured cardstock. We also used foam mounting squares between each layer to give it a 3D look.
Stay tuned for the other designs in this woodland set! Over the next few weeks, we will be releasing the rest of the artwork, which includes a bird for spring, a fox for summer, and an owl for fall. You can bring them out one at a time, depending on the season you’re in, or hang them up all together for one gorgeous display.

Lia, I am making the Winter Deer this evening. It is absolutely gorgeous; however, when I look at your Winter Deer, all of the cuts are so beautiful, clean, and precise. My Winter Deer has a lot of what I’d call “hanging chads” all over it and the card stock seems to get torn up during the cutting process. I am using Recollections card stock and I put my setting on card stock for intricate cuts. It would be helpful when you publish your instructions if you could inform us as to what settings you used and what card stock you used to point us in the right direction! Thank you so much. Mine doesn’t look nearly as neat and clean and pretty as yours. 🙁
I’m so sorry your deer didn’t cut neatly. If you are recutting try using the heavy card stock setting. I have found that when cutting card stock it is always better to cut deeper that you think, especially when using recollections as I have had problems with it not cutting through and the paper separating and tearing when removing from the mat.
Thank you for the suggestion. Do you mean using the Recollections card stock but setting it on thick card stock? I think it will cut it twice, then, which is what has been my experience on that setting. Did you cut yours twice or only once? Thanks for your help. I am so eager to make all four of the beautiful pictures, but only if it cuts out neatly and cleanly.
If you use the heavy card stock 100lb setting for the Cricut it should only cut once 🙂
Can’t wait to make these for my lounge room. Have I missed the fox or is it still to be added?
The fox will be posted this weekend 🙂
I can not find the owl to complete the collection. can you please help?
We haven’t posted that one yet– check back this weekend 🙂
Oh my these are so pretty…I cannot wait for the other 2 …Summer and Autumn. I have just the spot for the 4 on my wall in my newly decorated lounge…thank you
How lovely! Stay tuned the next two weekends 🙂
These are so lovely I’m going to have a go at making the woodland one as my daughter in law lives in a woodland avenue so has a woodland theme throughout the home thank you for sharing
Any tips for making it kind of 3D? Do you just use little foam pieces between the sheets? Thanks!
Yes! I added a link to the post for the 3D foam mounting squares we used.
Would you please link the IKEA frame you used in the example? Thanks, Carole
Yes, I have updated the post with this link: https://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/00378403/#/20378440
Thanks so much!
The link defaults to the larger frame, 19 3/4 x 19 3/4? Is that the size you are using. It’s hard to tell from the photos. The photo looks more like the 9×9 frame. Thanks, Carole
Yes, we are using the larger frame 🙂
OhMiGosh!!! I love these!!!
Thank you Janet!
Hi, do you have this in pdf format?
Yes, the PDF is available to download 🙂
This is so wonderful!! I can’t wait to make this for our home!! Thank you!!
I’m so glad you love it, Judy!
I have a Silhouette with designer edition. As a member, I’m wondering if I might somehow be able to access the rest of the four seasons ? I realize that they would be svg files ,but I’m ok with that, as designer edition can make the conversion! Does my membership allow me to use these… Or do I need to buy a CRICUT 😉? Thanks … These are just so elegant and pretty!🙂
Hi Laura! You can definitely use your Silhouette. We are releasing the designs one at a time for our members to download, so stay tuned for the other 3 this month!
I would be able to cut this with my trusty scalpel. I am disappointed that I cannot do so and am pushed to purchase a machine I have no interest in purchasing. I LIKE cutting by hand.
I am very, nay, deeply disappointed there is no template. It’s also rather unfair.
There is a PDF available to download.
