Christmas in July '09

I LOVE to make Christmas cards. It is one of my favorite things about being a paper crafter! Recently, I was cleaning out my card stash and I found this fabulous design using non-traditional colors. This card was created by my cousin Stormi a few years ago! I love it!!

I signed up for a card swap and I decided to use her card as my inspiration.

I used paper from Perfect Day. I used a stamp set called Magical season. I stamped the tree and star with blush ink, versamark and silver pearl embossing powder. I used a corner rounder, scalloped edge punch, and some bulk ribbon to create 12 of these 4X4 cards.

I am REALLY struggling with my 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 cards that I am also swaping. I have them started, but I can't decide where to go from here...I thought I was going to use a big star from Shining star, but it just isn't looking good....I dunno, off to surf for ideas! Thanks for reading!!
