Christmas in August? Oh, yeah!

 The Dream Team has moved away from "Summer Fun", and gone straight to "Christmas in August"! Wow...what a leap! For my post today, I am featuring the Single Bare Tree stencil, paste-embossed* in Glossy White on a bright blue background cardstock. I pasted in Glossy Red and covered with glitter just one of the birds from the Birds on Branch cut out and foam taped for the pop of color. To emphasize the frosty feeling, I softly stamped the Old World Greetings repeatedly on a square of white, and ink-stenciled one of the snowflakes from the Snowflake Background on the top, with the red rhinestone referring back to that pop again. A softly stamped border of Stampendous Cling Jumbo Merry & Magical adds to the contrast.

You're description of "pop of color" is so apt. This card totally "pops" because it of it. Just beautiful in every way!

Lovely card – cool and frosty with a pop of color (your patience in cutting out that teeny, tiny cardinal is worthy of sainthood).

Great card Pam, I love the layout you created and those POPs of red really make the card!
JD said…
