Christmas in August

Beginning now, I need to make a few Christmas cards a week in order to be ready to send them in early December. I have good intentions now. Let's see if I follow through or whether I am pulling an all-nighter to get them done in December!

Here is my Christmas card for this week. It uses the Pennant Parade stamp set. I love that this set can be used for multiple things. Of course, it makes adorable pennant banners on a card but it can also be used as Christmas trees. The set includes the tree base as well as the stars.

Stamping Vogue Tips:
  • Liven up your background using the Hello Doily, stamped in a monochromatic shade of ink.
  • Add interest to the main image panel by using the larger pennant for the the center tree and popping it up with a dimensional.
  • Use punches to make quick work of lining up your sentiments.

  • Stamp Sets - Pennant Parade (W 999999, C 122742), Hello Doily (W 122845), Teeny Tiny Wishes (W 115370)
  • Ink - Old Olive (102277), Real Red(103133), Chocolate Chip (100908)
  • Card Stock - Old Olive (100702), Real Red (102482), Whisper White (100730)

Keep on stamping!
