Christmas In July

Happy Monday!
I hope your week is off to a great start so far!

Today I have a Christmas card to share with you that I made for a couple of challenges.
I love Christmas in July!! 
Nothing like creating some cards that make you wish you were in cold weather when it is so warm out right? I love snow and cold! I know, I'm weird right? lol

Ok enough rambling, onto my card:

For my card, I used some papers from the Festive paper pack from Authentique. I love the distress/vintage feel these papers have! I then wrapped some satinn ribbon around my card layer separating the two different patterned papers. I then used the labels four die from Spellbinders to cut out my cream cardstock layer. Isn't that Santa the cutest? He is from the Old Fashion Santa set from KaDoodle Bug Designs. There are a few Santa's in this set and they are all adorable!! After I assembled and adhered him to my cream cardstock layer, I added some white liquid applique to his  hat and suit. I took my heat gun and ran it over the liquid applique so that it would fluff up. I finished off my card with a few pearls, glossy accents and some clear Wink Of Stella. 

This card will be linked to the following challenges:

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and taking a look at my latest creation!

I hope you have a great crafty day!
