Christmas in July

Why not join me and get a jump start on your Christmas cards? If we begin now, they might be done by Christmas and we wouldn’t be stressed.

This weeks challenge at Late Night Stampers is a Christmas in July card. My current Christmas paper has not arrived so I used Pink Flamingo designer paper and the nontradional color of Cameo Coral. I really like how the card turned out. Hope you like it too!

  1. Stunning, Dacia! I love the less traditional colours and I am also using Pink Flamingo for my Christmas Cards.

    Thanks for inspiring me to get to my stamping table!

  2. Very cute card. I’m hoping to finish my sister-in-laws wedding invites by this weekend. It sounds like fun to start working on Christmas cards. I send out a ton, so I need to get busy:)

    Have a happy Friday, Dacia!
