Holly Jolly Christmas

Keeping with the Christmas in July theme at Stamp Something this week, along with my newly acquired box of goodies I shared with you earlier, here's a quick Christmas card I whipped up using new stuff.
I was excited to try out my new Big Shot stuff, so I used the Scalloped Square Bigz Die to cut the base of my card. This die is great because it is clear and it will allow you to cut photos and designer papers and see exactly what you are cutting. I also used the Perfect Details Texturz Plate to emboss the background.

Don't you love that reindeer? the image is called Dasher and it is one of the single stamps available on the Under $10 page of the new catalog. The "holly jolly" sentiment cut with the Curly Label punch is from the Level 2 Hostess set called Christmas Punch. So is the little punched out snowflake...there is a stamp with 3 snowflakes and you use the Boho Blossoms punch to punch it out.

The colors I used here are: Soft Suede, Ruby Red & Always Artichoke. The ribbon is the Polka Dot grosgrain in Soft Suede. I hope you find time this week to join us at Stamp Something for the Christmas in July Challenge. You'll get some Christmas cards done early and maybe win some goodies while you're at it! Now I'm off to fondle my new papers! ;-)

ETA: I've received several emails asking the size of the new scallop square. It measures 4-3/8"
