Christmas in July

Hi Stampers, I have a Christmas card for you today! Are you wondering why I would be making a Christmas card here in the middle of summer? Well, I send out almost 200 handmade Christmas cards each year, so it is never too early to start.

            Stamps: Easy Events 

            Paper: Crumb Cake, Gumball Green, Very Vanilla, Be of Good Cheer DSP 
            Ink: Black Stazon, Gumball Green 
            Accessories: Blender Pen, Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details, Gumball Green Satin
                    Stitched Ribbon, 2-1/2" Circle punch, 2-3/8" Scallop Circle punch, Scallop
                    edge punch, Dimensionals 

This card is simple but fun! The base is Crumb Cake cardstock, with a piece of Gumball Green satin stitched ribbon tied all the way around it. I used the Scallop Edge punch on a little strip of Gumball Green cardstock and attached that to the bottom of some striped designer paper from the Be of Good Cheer paper pack. I stamped the image from the Easy Events stamp set on Very Vanilla in Black Stazon and colored it with Gumball Green ink and a blender pen and added Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details on the berries. I punched that image out with a 2-3/8" Scallop Circle punch and matted it with a 2-1/2" Gumball Green circle, then attached it to the card front with Dimensionals. Viola, hope you like it!

Everything used to create this card is available from Stampin' Up! If you would like to purchase Stampin' Up products, please visit my business website at


  1. Very pretty layout. I love that DSP behind the holly image.

  2. I will leave my comment in December when I can face the thought of winter.
