Believe it or not, we’re more than half way through the year.
Yesterday I saw a meme on Facebook that said it’s only 18 weeks until Christmas. Yikes!!
I don’t know about you, but I like to get a head start on my Christmas cards. I used to send out 70-80 per year, but now I only send 20-30. Still a lot to make, but definitely easier!
Using my Tim Holtz Mixed Media thinlits, I made this Christmas card. Which I must say, I like a lot.
I used a red cardbase, and cut a white topper, which I then cut using the Tim Holtz Mixed Media dies.
The poinsettia was made with the Spellbinders Poinsettia die, which I’ve had for many, many years! I added some Inca Gold to it, to bring out the embossing, and added a gold pearl to it, to finish it off.
The greenery was made with a Martha Stewart Punch, and the stamp is from Stamp-It *I think – can’t find the packaging. I’ve also had the stamp for many years.
When I placed the white topper on the red cardbase, I felt it was a little too plain, so added some Inca Gold over some parts that would show through. Just for a little interest.
I am entering this card in the Mod Squad’s “Christmas in July” Challenge.
I love your gorgeous card. What a great design and a beautiful Christmas creation!
Thanks so much, Verna. I am certain I’ll be making more of these!
Love it Cheryl. There is that die we are getting so much use for and my favourite Christmas die. Beautiful with the touches of gold. I am sure to be casing this one.

Well, this card just popped out from all of the others and I had to come over to tell you that I love everything about it. Great job and a nice start to your Christmas cards.
I am loving this die. Your colors and flower are wonderful. Thanks for joining us at The Mod Squad Challenge
