Christmas - But It's Only July!

I thought I'd make a start on some of my regular Christmas orders while watching the tennis. Each year I get asked to make a card for my friend's son to give to his uncle and his husband. It is so difficult to get personalised cards for gay family members so I look forward to the challenge each year.

I used this seriously cute digi from Digistamp Boutique (no longer open)...

I've used a kraft card base and matted a red and kraft snowflake patterned paper from The Range onto some dark red card. The image was coloured with pro-markers the die cut into an oval shape with dark red matting. I extended this above the top of the card when I attached it.

The greeting was created in Publisher and added using foam pads. The result is a simple but cute card personalised for the recipients.

I'm entering this card into the challenges at:

Cute N Crafty Challenge Blog #29 - Christmas In July
Sweet Stampin Christmas - July AG challenge
The Male Room #115 -Christmas in July
Little Red Wagon #505-Christmas Featured project
