Christmas in July

Hello Everyone,

First of all I must say a big SORRY for not posting lately, we have just been mega busy and although its perhaps only 10 minutes to do this it has been a struggle to set this time on one side, so here I am at long last.

We have been busy making Christmas cards and projects for our 2nd Christmas show for Create and Craft and its been so lovely, I feel in the spirit now and want to decorate up the house ha ha.

Anyway here is my card for today and the new projects are going to be on tv tomorrow exclusive for 1 month to create and craft.

This card has been made using an 8x8 card blank for the base in white, then a matt and layer of kraft card and a backing paper from the christmas cd bundle I have laid a strip of white lace across the card, then made a strip of kraft card and script paper again from the cd across the card also using this same technique for the flags on the top right of the card in 3 different widths.
I then printed and cut with a die the sentiment from the cds then using the Bud and Branches stamp set , stamped these flowers out onto red paper printed from the cd, using versamark ink pad and cosmic shimmer bright gold embossing powder, I used all the sizes of the flower  stamps

to then create 2 arrangements on the card, then added for the twigs some wired rafia  for interest. I then stamped the little postmark effect stamp onto the strip of paper across the card just to add the date for a little interest.

I also must add this last weekend it has been the Summer Crafting show, WOW what an amazing show, we had a great time met lots of  lovely people and was busy all day both Saturday and Sunday, also we did a live show for Create and Craft using our new Flower bundle which is amazing. So a big thank you to all involved in that too.

Right heres the pictures, Have a lovely evening.
Thank you for taking the time to read this post.
