Christmas in June

Hi everyone! I have some shocking news today. Are you ready? Okay. I printed out today's Split Coast Stampers Card Sketch 286 today and actually made a card for it...TODAY. Yes, all in the same day! LOL! That is so shocking for me. Usually I print them out and then a couple weeks later I get around to making the card.

I've been trying to make a few Christmas cards each month, so I decided to use Unity Stamp Company's Joy and Wonder set for this card. I stamped one of the trees in Memento Cottage Ivy. All of the papers are SEI Christmas Mint. I embosssed the background panel with the Snowflakes Cuttlebug embossing folder and stitched around the edges. I love the way that white thread really pops on the green background. I added a tag that I stamped with a Papertrey Ink sentiment to finish it off.

I'm also going to enter this card in Sparkle's Christmas Card Challenge.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! :)

  1. This is really pretty! What a beautiful Christmas card. I think it is a great idea to make them early - I always start in June or July with a few cards here and there and by December my stash is overflowing! Love this beautiful card!
