Christmas in July.....

I've been playing around with designs for my next Stamp-a-Stack, which will have a Christmas theme..... unfortunately this card will need a bit of tweaking to be a SAS card, as the paperclip embellishment is retired, but other than that I love it!!! 
Here's the card....

And a close up of that pesky paperclip...
But I do love it!!!  It's very me... :-)
I'm entering this card into Just Add Ink Inspiration Challenge #270 , where I've taken inspiration from the colour scheme of the first photo, and I've also used the tree and star idea on my tag.

I've also taken the sketch from TGIF Challenges, but I did flip the sketch horizontally, to allow for the sentiment to flow more smoothly.   

Stamps:  Festival of Trees
Colours: Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Mossy Meadow, Cherry Cobbler, Smoky Slate, Old Olive
Other: Merry Moments DSP, Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, Bitty Banners Framelits, Lucky Stars Embossing Folder, Silver Metallic Thread, Old Olive Simply Styled Embellishments (retired)
Happy Stamping.....Manda xx


  1. I love the bold green tree paired with the DSP. A beautiful Christmas in July card Manda and I wish we still had those cute little paperclips! Thanks for playing along to Just Add Ink this week and sharing your beautiful card. Louise xo

  2. It is very cool that our Christmas DSP complements Festival of Trees so well, isn't it? Love the balance of colour on your card, Manda; it's lovely. Thanks for joining in the fun at Just Add Ink this week!

  3. Love your dual theme of trees and stars Manda - and how the DSP is so bright and fresh against the textured Crumb Cake background. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

  4. This is a really lovely Christmas card! The paper clip is a wonderful touch! (I can never get those things to sit right, so I leave them off!). Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week!
