It’s already the 25th of the month so that means time for a Christmas post. I went with a traditional color scheme with lots of layers and textures. I started out with red base and used the Softly Falling #139672 TIEF from Stampin Up to texture the base layer. I added an emerald envy green layer textured using the Holly TIEF #141634. The sentiment is from the Greetings from Santa stamp set and layered on a seties of circles from the Stitched Shapes Framelits #141634 and the coordinating Layering Circles Framelits #141705 and finished up with a sweet bow from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit #137547.

For today’s Christmas in July card I started out with a plaid piece of DSP from the now retired Warmth and Cheer DSP paper stack from Stampin Up, I cut 2 Stitched Shapes Framelits #145372 and added the sentiment from the Greetings From Santa retired stampset. The list was stamped, hand cut and placed just below the sentiment. To complete the card, I added a sweet twine bow.
When the Stampin Up Holiday catalog came out I quickly ordered the Detailed Santa Thinlit #141836 and the coordinating Greetings from Santa #142069 stamp set. I did not get around to using it until after most of my cards were completed and mailed. I truly love how it turned out simply by piecing colors behind the cut out. Below is a card with nothing behind it and was the first thing I did when I got it and was not really happy with the results. So glad I gave this guy a second chance. I will definately use it again next year!
