Christmas in July #3



**************************************************************
HEY, EVERYONE:  Don't miss my 100-Follower Giveaway!!! 
************************************************************** 

Hi, Friends.....

I am back with my third entry into the Christmas in July Challenge at Cards in Envy.  This is my favorite of the three that I made for this challenge.  I love the non-traditional pink color for Christmas cards and the retro font of the die-cut I used.



I used DCWV scraps from my stash and I also die-cut silver foiled paper from the DCWV Stack - Foiled using my Clearly Besotted - Merry Christmas dies.  LOVE how this gorgeous foiled paper makes the greeting shine!  So perfect for an eye-catching accent!!


I added a soft little satin bow in a coordinating pink color for a monochromatic look.  I really love the simple elegance of this quick Christmas card.  Hope you like it, too!!!

Have a great day.  I will be posting my Friends with Flair card today, also.  Busy day for my blog!!!  Can't work outside in the heat.  Might as well try to craft.  :)

Oooh Janis, this is gorgeous with the gold and silver die cut sentiments! I love the way it looks against the non-traditional pink and white. I also like to mix it up when it comes to Christmas cards, and go for the unexpected. This reminds me of a cherry bon bon....good enough to eat!
