Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

Christmas in July


Hello, I hope you are having a good day! I decided since it was so hot outside that I would cool it down in paper form and make a Christmas card. Plus when I stopped by Freshly Made Sketches and saw DT member Karren’s adorable card it got me in the Christmas mood. Next, I had to pick a color combo and went straight to the Color Throwdown for inspiration. Did you also know that Build Your Own Stash is also having a Christmas in July Party with many prizes too? You have a little time left to join them as well.

Card Details with some Affiliate Links: Postal die background is Hero Arts, Poinsettia is from Impression Obsession, the scribbled wreath die is from Stampin Up. The white sprigs are bits of a Christmas tree from the Spellbinders Truckin Through the Seasons. The gold embossed greeting is from Verve. I used a hole punch to add some dots of gold glitter paper.

Thanks for dropping in on me and I hope you do one thing today that brings you JOY! Nanc’
