Christmas in July

Have been loving the new Holiday Catalog from Stampin  Up which will be available to you on August 1st. Do you know that I found a new item (to me) in it that I had not noticed before?  I can't tell you how many times I have gone through that catalog and never noticed it!  It's kind of like going through a yard sale.  You have to go through it a few times because you always notice something different when you pass through again!  So today's card is made with the new Ornament Keepsakes (128051) and the new Framelits Dies(127816) that cut the ornament images out.  Stampin Up has given you a discount if you buy both of them together (129950).  You save $8.00!  So I stamped the ornament and proceeded to cut it out by hand when my little light bulb went off and as I was finishing it I realized that I had the framelit to do all the cutting!  I am such a goofball sometimes.  So I used Early Espresso (119686) and Very Vanilla(101650) card stock.  Candlelight Christmas Specialty DSP (126901) provides the beautiful printed background.   Then I took the new Core'dinations in Gumball Green (127847) and rubbed it with the new Sanding System (129367) and embossed it with the new Lace Brocade Embossing Folder (127819).  My finishing touches were with the new Scalloped Tulle Ribbon (127841) and a piece of Crochet Trim (118481) and Linen Thread (104199) along with some Pearl Jewels(119247).  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it.
