Christmas in July

I'm one of those people who loves making Christmas cards ALL the time so when I see "Christmas In July" I pull out my Christmas supplies and go for it. Now, that doesn't mean you have to make a Christmas card to be in our challenge this month at Craft-Dee BowZ since our challenge is always ANYTHING GOES, but if you need an excuse to do a winter card, this is it.

For those who are wondering what ornament die I used, I'm sorry but I didn't make note of it. I used my striped embossing folder for the background, tag stamps by Whimsy, branch die by Tim Holtz, Quikcutz rectangle die and pretty flat back mat finished jewels by Queen & Co. 

My bow is made with lightweight seam binding which tied beautifully using my bow tool. I made a double loop bow and it was the perfect embellishment on this pretty pink Christmas card! You can see how perfect this bow turned out and it was on the first try. No more wasting ribbon or seam binding for me trying to get a good looking bow for any project!

This is my little bow tool. It's small, simple to use, reasonably priced and I've saved money by not wasting anymore ribbon trying to get a good looking bow. It comes out great the first time with my bow tool!

Our sponsor this month is The Paper Shelter and the winner receives 3 images of their choice from the extensive collection of images which include black and white images as well as images digitally colored and even background paper! You are sure to find more than 3 that you want, so please visit the site and see the fabulous images for sale.

Our challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ is always ANYTHING GOES. Today is the last day you can enter your project in our challenge and I wish all entrants the best of luck!
