Christmas in July!

Good morning Sweet 'n Sassy friends!  Cathy here with an early Christmas card.  This Thursday, on July 19th, Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps will be hosting a Christmas in July Blog Hop.  I am looking forward to hopping with some very talented SNSS design team members!  So often I am scrambling to get my cards done at the last minute.  Soooo....I'm taking every opportunity to get an early start on my Christmas card stash!  My card today uses the Cardinal Digital Stamp and this week's Sweet Stop Sketch.

This is just one of many wonderful bird images at the SNSS store.  I printed out the Cardinal Digi on Neenah Solar White card stock and used the Out-of-the-Box technique and a circle Nestie to cut out the image.  The cardinal is colored with Copic Markers and some Glossy Accents, White Gel Pen, and Stickles were added for some Christmas sparkle!  The papers are from Echo Park's Winter Park Paper Pad.  All of the layers were stitched to a Pure Luxury card front.  Some white twine and rhinestones were added to finish the card!

I hope you will hop along with us on Thursday to see more Christmas goodness!  You will not want to miss the special deals, fun, and PRIZES! You may be inspired to get a start on your Christmas cards!

Thanks so much for stopping by...have a blessed day!
