JustRite Challange #26

Christmas In July
I love Christmas, and I am looking forward to making my Christmas cards this year. I have been playing with some different ideas, and this week’s JustRite Friday Challenge was the perfect excuse to try one out.

This is a fairly simple card. American Crafts silver foil paper was perfect to use with punches for the snowflakes. I put pearl accents into the center of each of them and on one corner. The JustRite stamp I used was from the Old Fashioned Christmas set. I love how it looks with the gold embossing powder. I stamped the stocking image again in black ink onto cardstock and colored it with Copics and used Christmas Red Stickles and pearl accents for the details.

I think the overall effect is pretty nice; I love anything shiny so this fits the bill! The card came together quickly enough it could be mass produced for Christmas.

I hope you enjoy my card!
