Christmas in July

Happy Friday All!

We have a new challenge for you over at Stamp Something and this week we want to see your holiday cards! That's right our challenge is Christmas in July! Make a holiday or winter themed card and get a jump start on your holiday card making to do list! Anything holiday will work for this one. Our sponsor this week is Firecracker Designs and they have donated some great blog candy. Head on over to Stamp Something to check it out!

For my card I used a couple super cute Firecracker stamps, one of a reindeer and the other of Santa! Perfect for the holidays I would say. The sentiment is also from Firecracker.

It was a lot of fun to make a holiday card in the middle of summer. A nice change from the norm! I used Copics to color the images and then added some stickles to Santa. Each images has been cut out and popped up with foam tape. The papers are retired SU! designer prints and some Chocolate Chip and Old Olive card stock. I added a chocolate brad and some wide red grosgrain ribbon to finish this one off. Now I have 1 card I can check of my holiday list! I think I might start making a couple every month and get myself a big head start on the holiday season.

I hope you'll join us this week at Stamp Something. Have a great weekend and Happy 4th of July! :)
