Christmas in July...


 When a fellow crafter, Poet Spice, challenged me to make 10 Christmas cards between June 24th and July 10th, I jumped on that like white on rice.  When she saw how quickly I did 8 in June, she upped my goal to 20.  HA!!  I did 23 by the end of the challenge!! 
 
The flames are punched from the SU Bird Builder punch.  I used Distress Ink to give them depth.  The branch is a die-cut and the twine is in my Etsy shop... link HERE
 
I had made this design before from something I saw on Pinterest but changed the banners from 4 to 5.  I always thought that in design, numbers were supposed to be odd.  This made the figuring of 5, very difficult for me.  I'm just horrible, horrible, horrible at math.  But, once I figured out one, the rest were relatively easy...
 
The sentiment is heat embossed and the banners are dry embossed with a snowflake folder.  I've added lace and silver edged red ribbon, punched snowflakes and bling...
 
These are Mod Podged napkins.  I added some modeling paste with stencils on the four on the right.  I loved that detail...


This is my favorite of the six napkin cards.  I LOVE the word stencil I used with white modeling paste.  It really stands out...
 
Fifteen for July... SCORE!!

    1. I know, right?!! That's the case with all pictures of cards. You can't "feel" the texture or the weight. Thanks Jeanne...
