Christmas In July,2009

Happy Sunday to all of you, hope your day has started out great! Today I'm going to share with you the Christmas cards that I made for some of the people on my list. My list is not very big, less than 30 people, so it's not overwhelming to make cards.

First I started out with kraft color cardstock for the base. Than I cut out white cardstock a tad smaller and ran it thru my Big Kick in a Cuttlebug embossing folder called Snowflakes, I than use a product called Stickles, it has glitter in it, makes the snowflakes all sparkly. Next I cut out pink scallops with my Nestibilites scallop die, than added a small oval on top of that, I used my coluzzle to cut that out. I also used a punch from Stampin' Up called the ornament punch. I used the Stampin Up stamp set-Delightful Decorations, that goes with this punch. The tree branch stamp I found at Jo-Ann's. I used pink ribbon as a ornament hook and that completed my card. I did everything assembly line fashion, doing each section at one time on all of the cards, than moved on to another section. On some I used green cardstock and some others red, just to change it up abit.

Tomorrow I'll show you the cards that I sent to my dog loving friends for Christmas. Happy crafting until than.....Mary
