Christmas in August for THE CUTTING CAFE





































Goodness, I'd say this card was a stretch for me, but today I cleaned out a closet and organized a bunch of stuff, including moving one of the Christmas trees and some of my Christmas craft stuff. So, it was easy to put my hands on some of the bling I used on this card. Equally easy was finding a good cutting file from THE CUTTING CAFE to make a nice card.




































I really wanted to play around with layers and holly. I went digging in the files for where I'd seen holly before. Found a cool little cutting file in the Christmas Shaker Cards. Regina made a little holly piece for the snowman which was easy to upscale & emboss as a second layer in this card. While digging through the Christmas paper, I found this little mitten print & cut from the same file.





































I must say it's pretty easy to pile on the bling when you won't have to mail the card for months! Can you tell I just couldn't help adding more and then more? I guess I might need to make a couple more Christmas projects to get it out of my system!

Also, you might spot a little reindeer there on the very bottom....talking about those tomorrow!

Happy Sunday!
