SU cards- Christmas in July

Hello crafty pals,
So it may already be August (phew, where is the time going?!!) but I wanted to share some fab festive cards I made recently…

I had a great time a couple of weekends ago at a Christmas in July workshop class, hosted by my local Stampin’Up demo pal, Amy White of Whitehouse Stamping.
We made 4 stunning card designs… 3 of each, so that means a great boost to my festive card stash!! Here’s the first of them to share with you, then I’ll post the others over the next few days, so be sure to stop by for more inspiration! (All materials are Stampin’Up.)

I really love this card… well, I love all of them really – my fave changes every time I look at them all together, but today this is my fave. It uses SU ‘Lovely as a Tree’ set to create a wintry landscape, on this shaped card – which I rarely make.

The ovals dies are perfect for this, and I love the details like the piercing around the edge, the glittery snowbank and the silver punched layering for the sentiment, which reminded us all on the class of a metal hardware effect ;)

I’m inspired by these challenges:
Twisted Tuesday – A Christmas Forest in July #2TC81
Sisterhood of Crafts –  Dies and/or Punches 

Back with more Christmas in July fun soon, Rx
