CUTTLEBUGSPOT CHRISTMAS IN JULY!

































Good evening
Well this week at the Cuttlebugspot we are celebrating Christmas in July!!
I decided to opt for a simple elegant card using cream finely ribbed pearlescent card, gold mirri card some pearls and some ribbon.
The card is A5 in size and folds from the top, I made this card by cutting an A3 piece of pearlescent cream card lenghtways. The Merry  Christmas panel is an embossing folder from Papermania, they have started making these beautiful Christmas folders and I've had to buy 3 already! they are like the cb folders and give a lovely deep impression when embossed, of course I must buy the rest of the collection now!! I used the 3x3 CB dove emboss and cut folder in the corner which I cut twice once in cream and once in gold and slightly offset them and cut  and embossed  the leaf in gold. I adhered some gold ribbon (from Costco) down the centre of the card  and made a bow at the  top, then after matting the panel with pop dots for dimension onto gold mirricard placed the panel down in the centre and pop dotted the dove on the right hand corner. Finally lots of little pearls to finish. This card was quick to design and make up which is what I need with all the cards I have to make at Christmas time!
We would love you all to join in with the challenge this week and get a head start on your Christmas cards too! There's a great prize for the winnr too! Pop over to the Cuttlebugspot and see all the gorgeous creations the rest of the DT have created!
Thanks so much for popping in to see me again!

Hi Julie, sorry for my lack of visiting, but my computer is not playing ball, it won't let me log in so have had to shove one of the boys off theirs. Great to play catch up tho. I love the candles you have been doing, the owl latern is gorgeous. Now I just have to keep my eye out for the papermania embossing folders this card is just gorgeous, more spending, but hey we only live once.

hugs
