Christmas in August - Tarheel Stamper

Christmas in August!  Missed Christmas in July because of wedding preparations.  LOL  I love Christmas and making cards to send is so much fun. This one will be part of a class I am having in September.  I wanted to keep the card somewhat simple to be able to mass produce.

Love how the Jewelry Tag Punch creates small perfect accents.  I used Night of Navy craft ink and Clear Embossing powder on the tag.  Silver embossing powder and Versamark ink was used for the main image.  I love heat embossing!  I added one of our Rhinestones on top of the star.  Sorry for the poor image, but the honeymooning couple has my camera.  I had to use my scanner and it is not working properly.  This is a very pretty card in real life.  I used TechnoStamper's TSSC135 sketch here for this card.  I love card sketch challenges.  Mary Jo Price-Williams always has great sketches.  Check out her blog.  She is very talented.  Love the music there also!

This is truly stunning. I love Night of Navy and Silver for Christmas--and Real Red and White. This card is just perfect for mass producing too. Great job, thanks so much for playing along with my sketch challenge this week. And for the kind comments too!
