Christmas in July

Hi Classy friends!  I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July!  For me, it's time to start thinking about Christmas cards, and I've whipped up this card today to share with you.  

The products from Classy Cards 'n Such that I've used on this card are:

French Pastry Doily die (Cheery Lynn Designs)
Lady Kate Edger die (Cheery Lynn Designs)
Snowflake 5 die (Cheery Lynn Designs)
Christmas Sentiments (Impression Obsession) 

I started by cutting some of the papers from the Rejoice 6x6 pad and layering them onto cardstock.  I then cut the doily from cream cardstock, and then I cut off a small section on one side so I could adhere the doily flush to the straight side of the dotted paper.  A dark green Lady Kate edger was glued over the doily and papers and then I affixed the brown snowflake.  The sentiment was stamped on Kraft paper and I used scissors to cut the notches on the right sides of each sentiment.  I arranged the two sentiment flags next to the brown snowflake and then I affixed a button with some linen thread to the center of the brown snowflake.

Have you been thinking about starting your Christmas cards?  There are a bunch of brand new stamps and dies in the store that would be perfect for Christmas cards!  Check them out by clicking on the NEW tab in the Classy Cards 'n Such store.
