Blog Hop Christmas in July



With the temperature at almost 100 and heat warnings out for several states from East to West, North to South it was so much fun to think Christmas!!! And this card sure put me in the mood for some cooler weather and making my Christmas cards. This card is a Pop-up stage card that was on SCS complete with directions and I guess the directions were pretty good as my card came out pretty much like it was supposed to!! I used Jingle Jolly for all my images except Merry Christmas and my DP was Maggie. As you can see it all folds in and the card is held together with a belly band so you can mail it (may require a bit extra postage) then can be displayed standing up!! This card is already marked for my dear granddaughter. I am so anxious to see what everyone has done for this PaperWings sponsored hop - Christmas in July!! Just click on the list below and enjoy.

I'm so glad you did a stage card! Yours turned out excellent! I love what you did with it. I'm with you, when I first saw the tutorial I was a bit skeptical too. I'm also working on a couple more of these, and one will be a winter theme too. Thanks for sharing this. . .it is super cute! Best, Curt
