Last Day of JustRite's July Release!

Happy Saturday to you! It's a beautiful day in Chicago and we are going to hang out by the pool today. :) 
Today is JustRite's last day for their July release.  I hope you've enjoyed all the beautiful new Christmas sets!  I am not usually a CAS cardmaker, I usually like lots of "stuff" on my cards.  I admire people who create CAS cards, it's just not something I'm very good at.  
But for some reason, this card came together fairly simple for me.  (no pun intended!) 
I used Tim Holtz Distress markers to color the stocking from the new Christmas Gifts Vintage Labels Two, directly on the stamp.  I added a large striped ribbon, rusty jingle bells, and did a bit of paper piercing.  The sentiment was stamped in red and popped up using a bit of scoring to fold in the sides.  
Sometimes it's nice to go out of your comfort zone a bit and create something a bit different. :)
Be sure to stop by these ladies' blogs for more Christmas inspiration!



Have a beautiful Weekend!!!
