Christmas in July

Flutterby Wednesday #114 - Christmas in July

I have some fun news! There was a vacancy on the Flutterby Wednesday Design Team and I've been asked to fill that spot for the rest of the year! {doing a happy dance} I just love Danni's weekly FBW challenges and I'm so honored to be asked carry over from my Guest DT work this month. {HUGE smile}

Today's card is clean and simple! I really, really wanted to use an angel for the Christmas in July theme and I think the only one I have is from an old Stampin' Up set called Nativity Silhouette. I decided embossing these images was the way to go and I used iridescent ice powder on the angel to make it glittery. The blue 5-1/2" square is Abysse Sparkle cardstock from Paper Temptress and serves as the base of my card. The Confetti White cardstock is folded in half and mounted on the Abysse paper. The front flap is trimmed up half an inch to show some Gold Metallic Text paper (also from Paper Temptress) that is taped on the inside. I just love how the shimmer of the PT papers set off the shine in the embossed images too. {grin} The saying is from another retired SU! set called City of David.

Thanks for fluttering by today!

Blessings,

There is so much I love about this card - I love clean and simple designs. Even more, I love that your Christmas card includes the TRUE meaning of Christmas ... the birth of Jesus. :)

Congrats on the Design Team, by the way.
