More Christmas In July

 Christmas In July challenges seem to be a popular  theme this month so I am making more cards for my Christmas stash and challenges.  I made this using a tree stamp from Penny Black Wonder Collection which I stamped on Ivory CS with Memento Olive Grove ink.  I added ornaments which are actually pattern papers punched with 2 sizes of hole punches and attached with glue. The star at the top of the tree is a Metal Star brad.  I placed the image on a pattern paper from Crate Paper Peppermint pad and adhered to a base card of Ivory.  My inspiration for the tree with ornaments, colors, and using the Peppermint print came from the graphic from Just Add Ink shown below.  Word dies are from Cheery Lynn.

Really pretty Christmas card, Theresa. Love the peppermint candy background paper and that you've used a few of them to decorate the tree as well. Thanks for playing along at Happy Little Stampers.

Just can't beat a pretty PBlack image, and this tree is no exception. Love the tiny peppermint candy ornaments, and the super coloring on the tree. Very pretty background on the mats too. So glad that you joined in on the 1st HLS Christmas Challenge, and have become your newest follower! TFSharing. Hugs

What a sweet, sweet card (all puns intended)!! I love that the ornaments were cut using printed paper. I especially love the peppermint ornaments! Thanks so much for joining the Happy Little Stampers Sketch Challenge!

I love this little card. It has just the right amount of red pop to it. Those ornaments are perfect, matter of fact I might steal this idea for decorating my tree this Christmas. That star at the top, tops it off perfect. Thanks for joining us at Happy Little Stampers. LesLee xx
