Christmas in July

Hi there!

I think in all my years of cardmaking, this is the second time I make a Christmas card in July! I usually start making Christmas cards only when I get the Christmas "feeling" !

But... seeing so many challenges with this theme, I jumped in and made a card 😮 A really QACAS card though!

 I used :

  • "Merry" sentiment cut with my Silhouette cameo (font : Courtney)
  • "Christmas" font : Typewriter
  • Holly leaves : #208031
  • Enamel dots
  • Green craft foam to pop up the front panel and add just a little something interesting yet still maintaining maximum 'white' space
  • Craft card stock

Challenges :

AAA Card Challenges ~ Max white space (Optional Christmas in July)

The male room challenge ~ Christmas in July

Just us girls challenge ~ Sentiment as focal point


Thanks for visiting me today!

Fabulous! I love how you did the white sentiment against the kraft along with the holly berries and leaves. Thanks for playing along with us at JUGS!

Good on you for getting your Christmas cards started early. The kraft background really makes your sentiment holly pop.

An interesting idea to use green kraft foam to pop up your top layer. I haven't thought about coordinating my pop up materials with my card, other than to use a dark color occasionally with dark cardstock. I love these new ideas you share. I'm always inspired.

A CAS beauty and definitely loads of empty white space. Thanks for playing at AAA Cards, always a pleasure to see your cards pop up in the gallery.
