...Christmas in July

I've been seeing alot of Christmas in July cards, so I thought I would try to make one, too! I love non-traditional colors on Christmas cards; so instead of reaching for the reds and greens, I like using one of them with other non-Christmas colors {if there is such a thing! LOL!} I've always liked the way kraft, black, red, and white looked together...I think it's so clean and elegant. I have also been using more diecuts and chipboard in my recent projects, but I chose to use the "Little Leaves" Sizzlits Die along with some Jackpot Designer Series Paper. I had to trim on of the branches off for it to look right with the sentiment, but I love the way it turned out! All of the supplies were from Stampin' Up except for the border is from Martha Stewart {thanks, Pam}.

Well that's it for today! Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you all again soon! Have a wonderful Friday, and until later...

Stamps: Many Merry Messages
Papers: Kraft, Basic Black, Whisper White, Jackpot Designer Series Paper
Inks: Jet Black Staz-On
Accessories: mat pack, paper piercer, silver brads, dimensionals, big shot, little leaves sizzlits die, real red grosgrain ribbon, martha stewart border punch, scissors
