Christmas in July II

A new weekly challenge is up at Hiding in my Craft Room: Christmas in July. Yes, once again we are challenged to make a Christmas card. 

Our sponsor this week is: 
Digi Digi Doodle

I had the opportunity to use one of their fun Christmas images and I decided to make a background for my card...




I edited the Christmas tree image to make it olive green and duplicated it to create this background. I printed it on white linen cardstock.

I used Spellbinders dies to make this card. The patterned layer was die cut with A2 Matting Basics A. Before it was adhered to the card base I added three strips of old gold ribbon across it vertically. Then I die cut two olive green labels and one white label using Imperial Gold Labels Four, and layered them to create a focal point. The top label in white was stenciled and sponged with Memento Bamboo Leaves. I stamped and heat embossed in gold a sentiment
from Inkadinkado's set Personal Impressions. Finally I decorated the card with a triple bow that ties together the design.

I hope you enjoyed this fun and elegant Christmas card. If you'd like to join us this week, please visit Hiding in my Craft Room and link up your creation.
