First Open House Sample-Contempo Christmas!

Christmas in July! It's never too early to start thinking about those cards!!! I never do, but hopefully I inspired someone too! I do love this color combo though-and this card goes together so quick!!!

Card base is the new Cherry Cobbler. Yum!! Paired with Old Olive and Very Vanilla. The Jolly Holiday DSP pack has those colors as well, so I chose one of the striped prints for the background strip, and layered it on Very Vanilla to accent the stripe. The stamp set used here is Contempo Christmas. The Merry Christmas was stamped with Cherry Cobbler and punched with the Wide Oval punch. I used the Mat Pack punch guide to pierce a line of small holes under the Christmas. The other two ovals were cut in Very Vanilla & Old Olive with the Big Shot using the "ovals" die. The tree is stamped with Old Olive. Our new Jewels, specifically the Basic Pearls were used for accent. A teeny tiny one on the star on the tree, and three medium ones just under the punched ribbon accent. I used the piercing template in the Mat Pack to space the 3 pearls, most of my attendees just winged it!! Almost forgot to mention that new punch!! The new Ribbon border punch was used with a strip of Cherry Cobbler for the accent under the tree, across the striped paper. It is so easy to use!!!

Thanks for stopping by!! And special thanks to all to came to Open Houses this weekend! It was a grand time. Extra special thanks to my helpers!!! I couldn't do this without their help!!
