I am so happy to be participating in a Christmas in July Giveaway and Video Hop this weekend and you could win the presents! Dare 2B Artzy is giving away a $20 gift certificate and I have a prize package to give away as well. All the details on how you can win are in the description box of my video here.
In my humble opinion, it is never too early to start creating Christmas cards! I make them all year round and am never pressured at the last minute to get them done. My favorite style of card right now is slimline and here is another of the cards I share in my video:
I love how this card turned out and it was so easy to make! I simply cut a gorgeous purple scene from a Crafter's Companion set of designer paper with a stitched slimline die from Pink Fresh Studios and added "Christmas Wishes" cut with a die from Sue Wilson on a vellum pennant.
Another fun idea to do with slimline cards made with slimline dies is to make a shaker card. I started with a Whimsy Stamps stitched slimline die with 3 windows and made the top one a shaker. In the second window I stamped "Sending Hugs" from Waffle Flower and the joyful snowman was created with a die from Penny Black. Here is a peak at the card "all shook up":
You have until August 1st to watch my video and comment per instructions for a chance at two prizes, and then hop to the next video for more Christmas in July inspiration and prizes!
