Christmas in July


Hey Everyone!

I have to apologize for not posting in a while on the blog. I am taking a summer course in Organic Chemistry and have had very little extra time. 

Its July which means Christmas and Halloween cards for OWH! I have to say that these are some of my favorite cards to make and I love this time of year. Sometimes it is hard to find supplies for Christmas cards in the middle of July, but we have been pretty lucky and are using some old supplies from last year. 



We recently ordered a few Christmas sets from PTI so I thought I would share one of these. This first card was made with our new Peaceful Poinsettia stamp set from PTI. I stamped the large flower in red using Momento Ink. I then used an olive green ink for the leaves. The sentiment also comes with this set and it is one of my favorites! I am sure you will see me using it a lot. I backed the image with Bazzil red cardstock and a piece of green and white striped paper. To finish it off, I added three tiny gold pearls to the center of the flower. I hope you enjoy!

 I decided to enter this card into Jill's First Annual Christmas in July challenge!
