Merry Christmas "in July" wishes!

Hello there!  Thank you for stopping by!  I made another Christmas-y card  today for my upcoming Christmas in July class!  I must admit that it wasn't easy considering that it is over 90 degrees out today! I had to really, really channel my inner Santa to make this card come together!  Ho, ho, ho!

This sweet reindeer guy from Santa's Sleigh makes my heart pitter patter!  He is just so regal looking and handsome.  He knows exactly how to dress up any card.

I used Real Red, Old Olive, Whisper White and Crumb cake.  That just feels like such a happy color combo for a Christmas card.  I threw in a touch of Gold and So Saffron for a little bit of extra holiday pizzazz.

I punched the bells from Gold Glimmer paper and added a sentiment from Santa's Sleigh.  I used my 1/8" Handheld punch to make the small accent circles and colored over them with Wink of Stella.

I raised up the reindeer with Dimensionals and gave him a festive Christmas bow.

I tucked a circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits into the background to break up all the red and green.  It added the the right amount of contrast.  Then I topped the whole thing with a 1/4" Stitched Ribbon bow made from Daffodil Delight.

I must admit that I felt a bit more jolly after making this card!  (See what I did there?!) :)

Here are the goodies I used to make my card today:

Ok, I have about a bazillion things that I'd like to get accomplished today, so I am off to do them.  I hope that you enjoy your day and that you are able to make a little time to be creative!

I'll be back soonest with more to share!
