July Christmas Cards

Hello!  Today I have my July Christmas Cards to show you.  As most of you already know, I play the Christmas Card Challenge on Splitcoaststampers where we make Christmas Cards all year long so were not overwhelmed when December comes!  I make four Christmas Cards a month so I'll have around 50 by Christmas time.  Forgive my 'dark' photos.  I had to take the pictures just as the sun was setting to get them in on time for the challenge.

My first card is very simple, but I love it's simplicity.  The sketch is from Clean and Simple.  The stamp is retired Stampin Up! "Holiday Basics'.  It's hard to tell in the photo, but the star is embossed in silver, and there are adhesive sequins for the ornaments.  So it has a lot more interest in real life.

 My second card is an exact case from a card I saw on Pinterest.  I would love to give credit to the creator of this card, but the person who pinned it only linked to Splitcoaststampers, and not to the card itself.  So if you know who the original artist is, please let me know.  I just loved the simplicity of the buttons on the Kraft paper.  So pretty.
 My third card uses an old Stampin Up! image  "Baby Jesus is Born', and a sketch by Sweet Sunday (162).  The flower, sentiment, and creamy caramel border were created from MFT dies, the rest are Nesties.
 And finally, my last card is my favorite.  I just love it's whimsical nature.  I used last week's Splitcoaststampers Sketch ((SC395) and embellies from the Dollar Bins at JoAnn's Fabrics and Crafts.  The paper is from DCWV.
Have a great day! Amy
