Christmas In July

Christmas is coming!  Christmas is coming!  We only have 163 days left till Christmas, got get busy making the Christmas cards.  IF you guys are like me sometimes you wait till the last minute to make your CHristmas cards so I decided for once I'm gonna try and be ahead this year and have them done early.  Wish me Luck. Last year I waited so late that not everyone got one of my homemade cards, while I thought to myself they won't really notice if it is store bought and little to my surprise everyone was asking wheres my card, you gave store bought cards this year, that made me feel very special that they look forward to my cards.  So For the next 2 weeks I will be making several different Christmas cards so please check back often to see whats new.

Today's card was made using a new cartridge called A Quilted Christmas, I love all the detail and designs on this cartridge, I see this being used alot.  I like making 6 x 6 cards that is what my base card is I then cut the image at 5.5 image is on page 29, I also used the Martha Stewart branch punch for my garland, orange and red stickles for the flames on candles and berries on garland, The gingerbread men, wreath, stockings, and small trees are buttons.  You can find so many unique items too enhance your cards or layouts in the pre-packaged button section at your local craft store.  (Don't forget to invest in a shank remover for like $5-6, makes cutting the backs off super easy and no chance of cutting fingers with a knife).  Stamp sentiment is from CTMH.  Thanks for looking and be sure to come back.
