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!)
So are you up for more Christmas projects? Today is Day 4 of JustRite's July release. The set I used is called, Christmas Vintage Labels Four. I also used Festive Poinsettias to dress up my ornament. Apparently, I've been on an embossing kick, because this is another card that I used my Zing powders. I used red, lime green, and pink. The background was cut with a Papertrey Ink die and I popped it up with dimensional foam circles to create a shadowbox appearance. Loads of glitter was added to it for lots of sparkle. ;)
I layered my poinsettia and added some fuzzy red pom poms to the center.

Good morning! Today is Day 3 of the JustRite July release! I am loving all this Christmas in July creating! Today's set is called, Vintage Christmas Ornaments. I decided to veer off from the traditional color scheme and mix it up a bit! The present shaped card was cut from my Silhouette. I added lots of glitter to the bow for some holiday sparkle.
I used the Vintage Christmas Ornament as a tag for my "box." I embossed it with orange Zing powder. The leaves were embossed in lime green and very carefully cut out. I added a bit of satin ribbon, a jewel, and a few random sequins.

For today's card I used two sets, Festive Poinsettia and Heritage Christmas. I did lots of embossing on my card. For the ornament, I stamped it with Versamark and embossed it with baby blue Zing powder. The sentiment was done with silver. I wanted my poinsettia to have a soft airy look to it, so I stamped it on vellum. It was embossed with a pale pink, and the leaves in green. I assembled my ornament and added a bit of silver string with a pearl to dress it up a bit. I also added a bit of glitter tape and pearls as well.
The background stamp is actually from the fall, but it looked a bit like holly leaves to me....so I went with it! LOL! It was embossed in silver too.
Grand Sentiments is a great set that can be used as the focal point of the card, inside the card, or as a tag like I've done here.
The sentiment was stamped in Versamark and sprinkled with red embossing powder. It was cut out using a Spellbinder's tag. The edges were inked a bit with brown Memento ink.
This cute Santa box was cut using my Silhouette. It is perfect for filling with a gift card or sweet treats!
His beard and mustache were given a coating of liquid applique. I love liquid applique! It gives his beard such great texture! I added a red pom pom for his nose, a bit of pink chalk to his cheeks, and black enamel accents for his eyes.
Here is Grand Sentiments. :)
