Christmas in July
by Donna Sledzik


Hi everyone!  Today I have a clean and simple (CAS) Christmas card for you! 

I love an excuse to start Christmas projects, and Christmas in July is one of my favorite things!

For my card today I wanted to show you how to use everyday dies and make them work all year long.

I began by die cutting the Verdant Leaf twice from watercolor paper. I used watercolor paper because it was a nice contrast from the white cardstock.  I cut one of the leaf images apart and glued them to my cardstock.


Then I die cut the word "Merry" 3 times from red cardstock and glued them all together to give the word a little more dimension.  Before I adhered the word to my card I stamped my sentiment on a strip of white cardstock and glued that to my card.  Then I adhered the word Merry above my sentiment. 


To finish the card I added some sequins to the leaves and used foam tape to adhere my card front to a white card base.

That's it for today!  Have a great week.








This design exudes understated elegance.


This is so pretty, I love using our normal dies for all year long!
