Christmas In July

Hello friends! The month of July is when we start seeing all sorts of NEW Winter and Christmas crafty products. As a stamper and paper crafter, it's a month I soooo look forward to. One of the perks of being on design teams - we get to see and create with new goodies before they are released. That being said...stay tuned for some FUN and FABULOUS new goodies coming very soon!  I don't have any new holiday products that I can share with you yet, but I will.....real soon! ;)

In the meantine, I've created a "Christmas in July" card using a die the was recently released over at Crafter's Companion. The Die'sire Prestige Only Words metal die collection.

I used the "Wishing You Everything" die to look as if it were a belt buckle. This saying is perfect for Christmas time!  I die-cut from White Pearl Shimmering Cardstock. The details on these dies are beautiful. You will absolutely LOVE them! I do.
I have 'em all.

I adhered the diecut to a strip of Black Pearl Shimmering Cardstock, which I embossed the edges by scoring with The Ultimate Tool for added dimension and detail. The band (aka Santa Belt) is adhered with dimensional foam tape to a red cardstock base that's embossed with the Petite Dot 6" x 6" Embossalicious Embossing Folder. I rounded the bottom corners, add some red rhinestones and shimmering ribbon to finished the card design.
