Christmas in July

Well, if I start now with my Christmas cards, I will have them all done by December.  Right?  Well, that will never happen!  However, I did want to join Cheery Lynn Designs' challenge Christmas in July.  I have used the a digital picture of an antique Santa and placed him behind the Window A die which is a Cheery Lynn Designs die.  I placed the "glass" for the window panes with plastic found in packages of cling stamps which I have been saving. 

Next is the Christmas tree which is a Tim Holtz die.  I decorated it with peel off stickers, which is the topic of the challenge at Classy Cards and Such's CCNS # 11 Peel-off Stickers.  I next decorated the window with the inner design of the Cheery Lynn Rectangle Celtic Fire die.  In the center I placed a holly and berry embellishment.  The sentiment was placed on pop dots giving the card an even more third dimension.

All the Cheery Lynn dies can be found at Cheery Lynn Designs and at Classy Cards and Such.

OK,  Here it is July and I now have one Christmas card finished!
