More Christmas in July...

Three white CAS cards in a row!  At least I got the white part of the holiday weekend in!  I think everyone else is getting ready for the 4th of July and here I am making Christmas cards like crazy!

I'm thinking you want to see the NEW stuff made up though so I'll just keep making.  Although I think tomorrow is going to be clean out the garage day. ugh.  I'd rather make cards!!! lol

Cut the NEW Tall Taper Candle die out of gold metallic card-stock then again for just the berries out of a scrap of silver metallic card-stock.  

I glued this with Tombow Mono Multi glue, green caps, directly to a top folding A-2 size card base. Teeny dots where the lines meet and there is a tad bit bigger area to leave a teeny dot of glue. 

*Tip*  Always keep the tip of your glue clean and it won't clog up on you.  

*Tip* and the most important one... always keep your glue laying down. If you keep your glue upside down, it will come out uncontrollable!  eep!

(I did try die cutting this with double sided tape on the back. It didn't work well for me...too sticky and didn't hold it's shape)

Isn't this Taper Candle die gorgeous?!  Can you just see it made up to look like stained glass?!  awesome!  Can't wait to do that next!

The holly and berries are from the NEW Cabrini Ornament die.  Three little snips with the scissors and you have the perfect embellishment for the candle!  : )

Did you notice the sentiment?  NEW rubber stamps!!!!  YAY!  This is the NEW Let Your Heart combo rubber stamp.



WOW is right!  LOVE the NEW Grand Merry Christmas Script die!  It's a beauty!  I paired it with the NEW Plush Poinsettia Corner die. Another beauty! 


The Grand Merry Christmas is cut from white card-stock and the Plush Poinsettia Corner is cut from white and cranberry card-stock.  The cranberry petals I colored with Copic markers after I glued them in place.  A gal can only go so long without a little colorbook therapy! : )

Several red glitter domes on the berries and this A-2 size card was done.

My last card for today is colorful and picks up the chalkboard trend that has been so popular.


Isn't it fun?!  I love it!  This is the NEW Have a Jolly Christmas die!  FABULOUS!  First I die cut it in white and it was great...but I just had to try some retro-ish colors.  I know...even though I've been on a white kick! 

So here you have Lagoon, Sage, Cranberry, Licorice and White Memory Box card-stock or notecard colors.


See that poinsettia at the bottom?  That is a NEW die too! It's the smallest flower from the NEW Poinsettia Bloom Trio die.  YAY!  More of everything I love!

Well, this is a lot today...holler if you have any questions!

Thanks for looking, enjoy the holiday weekend and keep coming back to see more NEW * NEW * NEW!!!

Oh, my. Such beautiful creations. I can sure get in the Christmas mood with these cards. That candle is on my "Must Have" list. Of course, that list is overflowing with all these new dies. Pam, your cards are PURE inspiration. Thank you. Happy Fourth of July!

Oh wow these are just great, love the elegance of the first one, always love poinsettia's and the great chalkboard look of the last!

So many great new dies and ideas!! Love the Christmas Script and your details on gluing the candle are so helpful, I always struggle with the appropriate adhesives - thanks PAm!

Very pretty cards. Love how you made each card different. There's so much a person can do with Memory Box dies, it's amazing....

I like the three cards, but really love the first one! Thanks
