More Christmas In July



Hello!  Two cards are better than one if you have the time and the supplies are already out.  I started by stamping some poinsettias and leaves from GKD Merry & Bright set using some older SU inks Ruby Red and Always Artichoke. I die cut them with GKD dies and set aside.  I stamped and die cut the word Christmas with GKD Seasonal Sentiments set.  I used GKD Heavyweight White and Red Velvet CS to assemble the 2 cards as shown in photos.  I used die cut white foam to pop up the word in the top card. Stamped the word Merry on each card with Versamark but used Red EP on one and White EP on the  other. Both are CAS designs and would be easy to mass produce.  Almost forgot....I added a bit of red crushed velvet flock to some of the petals on the second card.  That's the one that I played with the angle of the  Christmas die cut to be a bit different.
