Christmas in July


The card on my blog today is a card I made for a swap that I am in on SCS. Our theme for this month's card was Christmas in July. I wasn't sure I was going to be able to wrap my head around that theme this early...LOL...but I did!!! And I do believe I will be making several more of these for our Christmas cards this year.

I used Riding Hood Red, Whisper White, Basic Black, Baja Breeze and Old Olive cardstock. The designer paper is from BasicGrey called eskimo kisses rooftop. I embellished with Riding Hood Red ribbon and my photo corner punch (SU!) and used my Nestabilities for my image. The image is from the set Greeting Card Kids from Stampin' Up! and the sentiment is from the Stampin' Up! set A Cardinal Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by.

Very pretty card--I too love Basic Grey and used the same series on my SOTC card! Love the image and how you used the ribbon,
