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.
