Christmas In July

Wow!!!  It's the 28th already and that means the Calendar Girls are posting their creations.  Our hostess, Carol, chose the theme Christmas in July.  The card I made is one I cased from a card I made last year at stamp club.  But I thought it was such a great Christmas card.  And I have the pieces stamped and cut for many, many more so that I can send them out in December for our family card this year. 

I used:  Always Artichoke, River Rock and Very Vanilla Cardstock (SU); Artichoke Seam Binding (SU); Penant Parade and Heard from the Heart stamp sets (SU); small heart from the three heart paper punch (retired SU).  It is hard to see in this photo but I did use a Cuttlebug embossing folder on the vanilla cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by and please check out all the Calendar Girls' Christmas creations (see my sidebar).

Oh how sweet, Debbie! This card will be well received by your family and friends. The embossed frame is really a great detail, and the red heart is so cute! I love that sentiment set from SU, one of my favorites.
