Christmas in July-Sneak Peek

 Merry Christmas in July! I had my Christmas in July card cafe last weekend and while I was prepping for that I decided that I was going to make my own Christmas cards too.  I have a huge jumpstart on them and want to have them done by the end of August.  That is a huge goal since I make about 150 cards but I am well on my way.  I was motivated by the Be of Good Cheer DSP#126896 in the 2012-2013 Stampin Up Annual Catalog.  This paper has got to be my favorite Christmas DSP in a long while. Then when I saw the new Holiday Catalog and all the wonderful stamps and accessories I went to the drawing board to create cards.  I decided that I was not going to stop until I used up every sheet of the DSP.  Mission accomplished! I created 11 different designs that I will share over the next several months but today I am focusing on some items that are available in the Stampin Up Holiday Catalog that goes live on August 1st. The image is stamped with the Star Tree #126784 single stamp and is then cut and matted using the Labels Collection Framelits #125598.  I then added the piercing using the Festive template #127857 and piercing tool #126189and piercing mat #126199 to provide a homespun look.  The banners are hand cut and the card is finished by using Copic markers to stain the Stampin Up rhinestones,
