Christmas in July Guest Designer.....Sarah

Hi there - It's Sarah from Simply Sarah www.simplysarahdesign.com

I am so excited to celebrate Christmas in July with the Jaded Blossom team and share with you the project I made.


When the JB gals asked if I was interested I knew exactly what I wanted to work on.  The past 2 years I have been so busy during the Christmas season, I have not been able to send out Christmas cards to family and friends.  And because I don't like to leave anyone out when it comes to homemade goodies, I have to make about 60 each year. 

I took full advantage of dusting off my Christmas tools and got to work.

I created 8 different cards using Paper Studio Christmas Stack
I used the ever so popular and adorable reindeer from the Jaded Blossom Christmas Wishes stamp set
The sentiment also came from this stamp set. 
The Christmas Wishes set has to be one of my absolute favorites!
Each of the cards I rounded the edges and chalked them with either green, red, or grey chalk.
I matched the cardstock for the reindeer stamp and sentiment with the corresponding chalk from the card base.
I also used matching stickles on the antlers and added glittery decorations.

Here's one of each of the cards I made

and a close up of a few of them.



 Well, I sure hope you enjoyed my project for Christmas in July here at Jaded Blossom. 
These gals sure are the best!

~Enjoy~
