#27 Christmas In July

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays...in July.  Oh yes...and happy Thursday while we're at it.  If you're anything like me...not that you are...I'm going crazy on December 24th finishing up last minute cards to hand deliver later in the day.  When there is shopping to be done and food to be cooked...why should we be worried that we didn't finish our Holiday cards.  Here's a challenge to get the ball rolling.

For my sample today I've used the Stitched Snowman for my main image.  He sort of sits over the top to make a 4 1/4 inch square card into a standard A2 card (4 1/2 inch x 5 1/2 inch).  The base of the card was layered and stamped with It's a Blizzard Outside.  The sentiment comes from the set Warm Wishes.  It's actually an entire verse, but I just masked off the area I didn't want and inked the stamp to get just "warm wishes".  The base of the card was punched with the edge of a circle punch to look like the spellbinders nested small labels...used behind the snowman.



This challenge is open to any winter holiday.  Come play along and show us your holiday cards/projects.


The Rules are Simple:

•Make a new card/project incorporating this weeks challenge (you are welcome to combine with other challenges and you do not have to use TRC stamps but if you do you'll be entered twice for the random prize draw)

• Link your card below with Mr. Linky (in green).  There may be a delay in showing the link, please be patient. 

•Mention our challenge, on your post (with a link back here)

*If you post in a public gallery use key word TRCC27

*NOTE: Please enter only one card each week! Each week we will randomly draw a winner out of the projects that are entered and the winner will win a prize.  

This weeks prize is a $10 gift certificate to The Rubber Cafe online store

Love your card, very, very nice! Super great shape for a card, clever way to add interest and make it a standard size. I will have to try that. Thanks for the inspiration.
