Christmas in August

Good afternoon everyone! Hope ya'll are having a great Saturday. It's yet another HOT day here in SW MO. I'm so looking forward to fall. I just can't hardly stand the heat as I get older.

Todays card is a simple Christmas card that I'll use in one of my SAS. I started out with a piece of Cherry Cobbler (love that color), then some Old Olive and a piece of Jolly Holiday DSP. Using the Top Note Die, I cut a piece of Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla (folded). I cut the edges off the Very Vanilla and layered onto the Cherry Cobbler. I sponged Cherry Cobbler on the Very Vanilla edges. Stamped the tree in Old Olive from Holiday Happiness, then using my stampamajig, stamped the ornaments in Daffodile Delight and Cherry Cobbler. I didn't like the way the star looked at the top of the tree just stamped, so I punched a star from Daffodile Delight cardstock and popped it up with a pop dot. Added some bling and ribbon/bow made with the bow easy. For the inside, I stamped "Happy Holidays" from Holiday Happiness in Cherry Cobbler. I really love the way the card opens up with the top note folded. What do ya think?

That's it for today. Have a great weekend, and THANKS so much for stoppin by.

Happy Stampin,
Lois

I like your idea of using the Top Note as the card flap! The tree is very festive!

Love your card! I would have punched the star out too :), it just gives it that little bit of extra oomph :)

WOW, this is so cute! I love it. I love that you popped up the top note die

I really like how you used the Top Note die here, instead of a traditional 8.5" x 5.5" piece of cardstock folded in half for the card base. Very creative! The bow is lovely!
