WOW, can you believe it's the last day of July already. And, I’ve been so busy that I totally missed the Christmas in July cards I wanted to make. No problem, I’ll just have to be different and have a Christmas in August.!!!
And seeing that Christmas is less 5 months away, I thought it only appropriate that I feature a newly released Christmas Stamp from Sweet ‘n Sassy, called Christmas Candle. I am using the Digi Version of this stamp since I don’t own the actual stamp set. So, by going to the Sweet ‘n Sassy Store, you can pick up the Digi or PreOrder the clear stamp set.!!! The difference between the two is that the Clear Stamps come with the candle image and 4 sentiments. The Digi comes with the candle image and Merry Christmas.
The insapiration for this card came from this week's fabulous sketch over at the Sweet Stop Sketech Blog. Why not hop on over and play along with us this week.
I used a Brand New Paper Pack from Close to my Heart that won't even be for sale until September 1st. It's the Creative Basics Mistletoe Collection. It even comes with the beautiful light green shimmery ribbon I used.
I used red Stickles on the pointsettia, holly berries, and ornament at the top.
The Hand Stitching was done with Matching New England Ivy Embroidery Floss.
