Christmas in July

Preparing for my Christmas in July class, I designed these two cards. We probably won't do both of them since they provide the same technique. I just had to use the new Core'dinations Card Stock in the Holiday Catalog. I did find that I have to be very careful with the textured piece because it tends to tear easily—at least with the Woodgrain Textured Embossing Folder.

This first card was made with the Christmas Lodge stamp set in the core catalog.
This second card features the Evergreen stamp set from the Holiday Catalog, although it would look great with the tree in the Christmas Lodge set, as well. I added tags to the bow using "merry" from the Tiny Tags stamp set, but you could convert this card to a masculine birthday card.
By the way, my card classes are almost always $15 for 5 cards and one 3-D item. This class, July 26th, will include an ornament.
