Christmas in July card parade

2014_07_25DSCI0744 In July we traditionally host a Christmas in July workshop where our focus is Christmas cards. Today marks only 5 months until Christmas so I am sharing a parade of Cammie’s cards from her Christmas in July workshop.  The first card is the Joyful Tidings card and features the Kinda Eclectic #135347, An Open Heart #134999, and Christmas Messages #131790 Stampin Up stampsets.

The starburst from the Kinda Eclectic set and The Joyful Tidings sentiment from the Christmas messages set are embossed with gold embossing powder.   The largest Apothecary Accents framelit #127003 and the Oval Accents framelits are layered to and anchor the mistletoe stamped, colored with Old Olive #130999 and Coastal Cabana #129369 blendabilites markers and then handcut.  The mistletoe was tied with the scrumptious gold 1/8 ” ribbon.

Once colored the bird was hand cut out and perched atop of the silver mistletoe.  The silver embossed snowflakes are from the Snow days #131892 stampset and the sentiment is from the Joy to the World stampset #131796. The simplicity of this card makes it a beautiful and stunning card.

2014_07_27DSCI0746The final card in Cammie’s Christmas card parade features the Tap, Tap, Tap #134201 from the Stampin Up annual catalog.  The Back to Black DSP #133700 is the background of this card.  Cammie went back to the basic to create the note paper using a ruler and the Project Life journaling pens #135304 and used the spiral border punch #119874. Cammie added a typewriter using the Tap Tap Tap stamp set. She completed the card by writing a Dear Santa letter asking for Stampin Up supplies!
