More Christmas in July cards.

OK, I know it's now August but here are a couple more cards I've done for Sandie's Christmas in July challenges. Sandie has extended the finish time to August 23rd, although I don't think I'll get them all done at least I'm getting a few more cards in my Christmas stash!


This first card is for Day 5, a sketch challenge. The tree is actually a rub-on with a sticky surface, the pack came with some foil papers to rub over the sticky surface but I thought I'd try some glitter on this one. The glitter seems to have stuck OK. The red PP is by AED and the green holly PP is some really old Stampendous, thought I'd better use it up. The greeting is from a Stampin' Up set.


The 2nd card is for Day 6 challenge - "tearing or torn". I used a Crafty Individuals vintage Santa image.......do you recognize this Sandie, LOL! I used a Technique Junkies technique from the Dec 2008/Jan 2009 Newsletter called Torn Frames for the frame around the image. The PP is by Kaisercraft and the greeting is from Darkroom Doors Yuletide Vol 2 set. I wasn't going to add any other embellishment, but I found this green braid that was a perfect colour match to the Stampin' Up Mellow Moss cardstock that I used for the Torn Frames technique! The frayed edges of the braid also complemented the torn frame quite well. The card base is Stampin' Up Kraft

Hi Lyn
Hard to believe Xmas is just around the corner. I just love Darkroom Door products and your card is just lovely. I agree with the addition of the braid, it just finishes it off nicely.

These are beautiful! I especially like the torn frames, I don't think I've ever tried that colour combination, but it looks fantastic :)
