July Christmas Cards

Hello!  As always, it's the last day of the month and I finally have my July Christmas Cards ready to post.  As most of you already know,  I play the Splitcoaststampers Christmas Card Challenge where we make Christmas Cards all year long so that were not stressed out during the busy holiday season.  I make five cards a month so that I will have over fifty cards at the end of the year.   I make long cards:  4 1/4 by 8 1/2 so that I can fit a Christmas Letter and a Photo Card inside.  I also try to keep my layers to a minimum so that the cards are easier and more cost efficient to mail.

For this month I made five identical cards using the retired Stampin Up!  set 'Frosty'.  I chose a snowflake designer paper from DCWV and simply stamped the snowman and the sentiment right on the designer paper.  Then I stamped the snowman a second time on white card stock and colored in only his hat, scarf, nose, and buttons.  I then cut only the main figure of the snowman out (not the hands , holly or snow).  Then I adhered him to his stamped image on the designer paper.
 I colored the holiday directly on the designer paper (it was too small to cut out).  I then took a hand punch and made a tiny red heart out of red card stock and adhered that above the letter 'I'.
It was quick and simple, yet I think, adorable!

Have a great day!  Amy
