Challenge 138..Christmas In July!

Well Hello There,
Today it is my turn to choose the theme over at and as we are still in July I thought we'd do Christmas In July.  Now I always say "I am going to start early" and I can tell you I am still doing Christmas cards Christmas eve!! So lets kick start this busy time for us today. The challenge is to make a card or project for Christmas but it must have layers..the more the merrier.

Here is my card,

It is a 5x7 tent fold in navy. The fist paper is raised on foam pads after I stitched around the edge. I used Romantic Rectangles for the red and pearl white. The snowflake boarder my BF Sandy gave me and I added red gems. The snowflakes are another SB die and to those I added a button. the sentiment is a Verve stamp and then I coloured in my cute image using Promarker pens, I mounted her on top of the rectangle as if she is sitting on the embossed line.

Now it is your turn to make a start on those holiday cards. Before you do pop over to the other design team members blogs and see what beauties they have created.



  1. A gorgeous Christmas card. Love the aqua and red colours and how she is sitting on the sentiment.
