Christmas Already?

Christmas Already?
Ok, I am having a little bit of a hard time getting in the CHRISTMAS mood since it is still 90+ degrees here! We just had a little rain this morning so hopefully it will cool off (which most of the time our cool fronts only bring it down like 5 degrees!). So I answered a challenge over at Creative Journey (http://creativejourney.typepad.com/creative_journey/) to make a Christmas card to help me get in the mood.

The items I used:

green cardstock: Best Occasions
pink zebra stripe background: Glitz designs
multi-color lined paper: the Paper Studio
pink grid paper: the Paper Studio
Christmas tree paper: the Paper Studio
scalloped circles were cut out on Cricut
I cut the Christmas tree out using my Martha Stewart circle cutter. (love that thing!)
I used Glossy Accents on the pink dots and then applied pink sugar glitter.
Then, I applied Glossy Accents to the Christmas tree.

It's a simple design, but I love the way it turned out. Let me know what you think.

What a great Christmas card, Cheri! I love the color combination...so different from the usual red and green, but still so cool! I also like how you added pink glitter to the row of circles along the bottom of the card. It must look so yummy IRL!

Thanks so much for playing! I hope you check back on Monday when I post the winner of the RAK! :)

Have a great day!

Cheri, Thanks for visiting my blog, love your Christmas card. I have been working on some of my own and hope to post them soon. Did you use something to make the tree shiny, it sure pops! Lisa

Your card reminds me of candy canes, so yummy.

Today, I just saw the Christmas decorations and lights at Target for the first time this season. I'm getting very excited for the holidays -- your card is just lovely -- you must be getting excited too!

Thank you so much for your heartfelt comment on my blog -- it meant so very much.
