Christmas in August


Hi there, today was the first of my card classes for this term and we made some Christmas cards.  Yep I know I mentioned the dreaded C word!  It is only 123 days you know. 

It was great to dust off my Christmas stamps though.  On this one we've used Delightful Decorations and Baroque Motifs teamed up with Designer Series Paper Jolly Holiday.

The baubles were stamped in Riding Hood Red and matted onto Cherry Cobbler punched out with the Ornament Extra-Large Punch.  A Very Vanilla panel was stamped with Baroque Motifs in Old Olive.  This was attached to the Jolly Holiday paper which was matted onto a Cherry Cobbler card base.  A panel using the opposite side of the Designer Paper and trimmed with the Scallop Edge Border Punch is raised on Dimensionals and added to the top once the baubles were attached with silver string.  

In class today the ladies chose to use a panel of Cherry Cobbler at the top which was very classy. 

I'm going to enter this into the Simply Stampin' Challenge which for this week is to Punch it Up!  I was really please to see that I won top 3 last week for this card, thanks ladies it made my day!  Go check out the challenge there's currently a stamp set up for grabs. 

That's all from me tonight, hope you are having a great week and thanks for visiting. x

I love the baroque motifs under the ornaments. The dp is a very festive touch!
