Christmas in July

2017badge-denim

Welcome to the July 2017 Pals Blog Hop. Thank you so much for joining us today. This month we’re having a Pattern Party! Hoppers will feature projects using their favorite Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper and coordinating embellishments. After all, color coordination is a Stampin’ Up! Strength.

Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

Since I’m getting excited for the Holiday Catalog to come out and it is July (Christmas in July), I decided to make a Christmas card featuring new products.

I love the new Boxwood Wreath Embellishments and through it would be a perfect “o” in Noel. I fussy cut out the letters in Noel; inspired by the sample on Page 121 of the catalog.

I used some of the DSP from the front of the card and card liner on the inside of the card as well to tie everything together.

Wine lover’s birthday

We actually met two of our friends through our local wine shop. We were sitting next to each other during a wine tasting event and have been friends ever since. We are celebrating the birthday of one of these friends this week so I knew which stamp set I wanted to use for her birthday card!
