Christmas Cardinals

Christmas in July seems to be very popular this week.  A new stamp in my collection is from Northwoods and the focus of my Shabby Tea room Week #18 "Christmas in July" card.  You may see a lot of Christmas cards in the next few weeks as I get a good start on the holiday card creating.  I started by stamping with Memento Black and colored using Copic Markers.  I wanted to highlight the snow so I used a glue pen and applied Sparklyfluff "Sugar" by Our Craft Lounge.  To make the card I embossed my white with the Cuttlebug snowflake folder.  I used the snowflake paper and My Mind's Eye -The merry days of Christmas "all Aglow" paper mounted on red from Paper Cuts.  The red is the same paper that I mounted my stamped image on.  Oh I used the largest Spellbinder Octagon to cut the image so in order to get the red border I used an exacto knife and hand cut it.  The bow is from a crinkle white ribbon that I had.  Hope you enjoy.

Thank you for your comments. They are like hot cocoa in winter that makes you feel warm inside.
