Christmas in July!

Creating holiday cards this time of year in many ways is more fun than any other time of year! The weather outside is sweltering! The holiday deadline is months away! No pressure! Are you with me on this? Lol Let's talk about the card! My image is heat embossed, with color added utilizing chalks! I used a q-tip to apply color, and an eraser to remove color, enabling me to add highlighting where needed. Easy! All Spellbinder dies and embellishments are listed below. My image comes to us from JustRite's Christmas Treasures Borders and Centers stamp set. Wonderful card possibilities with this set! Check out JustRite's new designers gallery, filled with inspiration after inspiration! Locate the Christmas Treasures label and click for additional ideas using this set! All sets are listed for your convenience! A side note: My hubby's birthday is six months to the day away from Christmas, and he reminds me of that fact every year! And on his birthday, he reminds me Christmas Day is only six months away! LOL, yes he has an odd sense of humor! Hmmm, maybe that is why I feel the need to get going on those holiday cards!!! Take good care and have a terrific Tuesday!!!

Beautiful! Love that you brought out both heat embossing and chalks. We have so many things we don't reach for on a daily basis, but should! Well done, Barb!
