Christmas Trimmings


A Christmas card in August - I love making Christmas cards, so I don't mind stamping them any time of the year! This card uses Stampin' Up! Merry Moments Designer Series Paper, Holiday Best stamp set one of the new Hostess ones, and Tree Trimmings - new Christmas set.

The layout is from today Mojo Monday sketch, which I followed pretty closely. I embossed all the images and sentiments with Craft Inks and Clear Embossing Powder. Then I cut out the large Chocolate ornament and adhered it with dimensionals. The Vanilla Half Back Pearls from the Pretties Kit are adhered with Glue dots on the ornament as well as to the left of card.
