Sweet Stamps Christmas in July

12 Jul

Well, if you are visiting me from Sweet Stamps.com, you might wonder why my card has so much color?

Well it is about 3:30am PST and I just got done with my card.  After I had edited my pictures I decided to make sure that I had the right theme, CHRISTMAS.  Imagine my surprise and dismay when I saw the theme was in fact Christmas but, SILVER & GOLD.

So, my snow and star glistening are going to count as my Silver & Gold for this week.

I always try to think of ways to use stamps in a somewhat untraditional way.

So I combined a few stamps to come up with this card.

The tree is such a cute stamp called:  LACE TREE.

I paper pieced the tree in 2 different colored greens and made the cherries from my Cricut.

I combined 2 different phrases for my sentiment:

MERRY CHRISTMAS & A CHEERY HELLO.

I added lots of trinkets and embellishments, I just can’t seem to help it!

So there you have my non traditional Christmas card with a touch of Silver and Gold to qualify for this weeks card.

I invite you to head on over to the Sweet Stamps.com blog and see the other cards our Design Team has made.

Thanks for stopping by, I am going to bed now!

    What a unique idea using the cherries on the Lace Tree. Love the dotted corners and all the added elements you used.
