Christmas in July for Word Play Weekend #9

Happy Weekend everyone and welcome to another Word Play Weekend challenge.

This week's word is actually two words LOL

Christmas/Winter

I always start sometimes in July with christmas cards. Because if I don't I get stressed out once it's time to mail them. I hope you'll join me in this challenge.

Here is my card.

While I absolutely love this stamp from Lili of the Valley, I was totally uninspired by the designer papers I had. So... I went the easy route and used non. I just used my swiss dots embossing folder to add some texture.

Products used:

Stamps: Lili of the Valley woodland christmas, Stampin up sentiment
Paper: Bazzill, Neenah
Accessories: white grosgrain ribbon, stickles glitter
Tools: Derwent coloursoft pencils, baby oil for blending, Cuttlebug embossing folder (swiss dots), large oval punch (Stampin Up)



I'd like to combine the following challenges:

And now it is time for last week's featured card. Thank you to everyone that shared their creations with me last week! Here is my favorite card from the entries:

Stunning papers and coloring Katie!!

Congrats on making the "Card of the Week". Feel free to grab the logo below to place on your side bar!

To play along simply link your new creation below. Feel free to use any of your products and combine with any challenges you like. The only rules I have is that your project is something new and that you use the week's word either as the picture of part of your sentiment.
