Christmas in July



How HOT is it where you live - well settle back and enjoy Paper Wings Christmas in July Blog Hop. I choose these two cards because they are super EASY and can be mass produced in no time. The leaves are from Happily Grateful which is the SOTM for July and can be purchased for $10.95. I stamped in Versa-mark and decorated with red bling. Don't have red bling - just color crystal bling with red copic markers. Joy card is dual embossed in silver and gold, using nesties to cut the oval and mounted on scallop oval then a nice sheer gold bow for just a bit of added beauty. Hop on over and see what the other girls have done for their Christmas in July.
