Christmas in MAY???

Ok I've heard of Christmas in July but never in May,  but with that being said - I must say I had to play along with the JustRite Stampers Friday Challenge this week which was to create a CHRISTMAS card using JustRite stamps!

SO - without further blabbering - here ya go - I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE snowmen so I gravitated towards this precious snowman image for my card:

For this card I used the Old Fashioned Christmas Borders and Centers. These are really nicely sized providing for a great focal point on your card.

My background is embossed with the large polka dots from PTI's new embossing dies. I colored my images with Copics - cut out my main image with a circle Nestie then sponged before I removed it from the die. I matted the image on red CS cut from the Nestie blossom die. For my three circles on the sides I used the JRS Kaleidoscope Borders and Centers set - this image just reminded me of a snowflake so I stamped in a light blue Memento ink and punched out then sponged the edges.


I finished off with a few red pearls and some sheer polka dot ribbon.

Of course my snowpeople are glistening with some Dazzling Diamonds. Here's a closer look.


I had a great time making this card and it's really a nice feeling to know I have one done!!! Thanks JustRite for the inspiration and motivation to get moving.

Have a great week...
Hugs n smiles.

Wonderful! I am thinking of doing my Christmas cards over the summer so I don't have to rush in November!

What a cute card Pam. This is one of my favorite JR Christmas stamps because I too love snowmen. It is never to early to get started on Christmas cards!
