Christmas in July


I'm now in full Christmas/Valentine card making mode to try and get a jump on those upcoming holidays. Today I have a Christmas card made with lots of snippets of SU! retired dsp. I matted everything on Cherry Cobbler red and Gumball Green, and used a vanilla card base. I die cut a Lawn Fawn stitched snowflake, adding a punched center done with a SU! mini punch, and added a Geo sparkler sticker to the center. The sentiment is by Katie & Co and was done in Cherry Cobbler ink. The punched border was done with a SU! fancy scalloped border punch.


Thanks for stopping by and have yourself a great start of the week!

You seem to be getting on top of your C cards well from what you are saying.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Love all the snippets on this. I'm still pretending that Christmas is being skipped this year. And does this mean you are all finished with Halloween cards?
