Christmas in July

Well, I finally did it! I actually made a Christmas card before Christmas ---- and in July, yet! LOLInside:-


I absolutely fell in love w/ the Cricut Lite Jolly Holidays cart. But, when it first showed its face here, I missed out on getting it. :-( Then, just recently, a gal from the Cricut MB didn't want hers anymore and was willing to sell it to me. So, it was only apropos that I used it for my "first" Christmas card. :-)

Isn't the Santa and the li'l crow just an absolute hoot??!! :-)


Tools/Items:-
Cricut Imagine
Cricut Cartridge – Cricut Lite Jolly Holidays
Martha Stewart Punches – Snowflake corner punch; snowflake single punches
Cuttlebug Folders – Divine Swirls; Snowflakes
Stamps – Stampin’ Up "Alphabet Soup"; Hero Arts – inside sentiment
Glue – regular;
ATG; Zig Two Way
Cardstock –
white (base); red; blue glittered; white (for the Imagine, snow and sentiment bases)
Stickles – Frosted Lace
Popdots
I was considering Cuttlebugging Santa’s beard w/ the Divine Swirls folder but I thought it might conflict w/ the snow and/or be too much. The sky is Cuttlebugged w/ the Snowflakes folder. Then I punched out individual snowflakes from the MS punches and pop-dotted them. I thought they complemented the Snowflake folder. :-)
Stickled both Santa’s and the li’l crow’s hat.
I’m still in shock that I’ve actually accomplished making a Christmas card in July. LOL That is definitely going to go down in history! :-)
