This week The Spot - #120 Christmas In July Challenge

Can you believe that in just 4 days it will be 5 months until Christmas
Where has this year gone...DOWN the Covid-19 drain!!!

Well that being said I have created my very first card for Christmas 2020.
I am off to a great start. Let's hope they get posted this year LOL.
Do you post Christmas Cards or just hand deliver them?
I have all good intentions BUT usually I forget to post them off...

This card is very simple...
Last year I almost brought Most Wonderful Time Product Medley.
BUT I didn't so a friend loan me her papers so I could use these...
I have ordered them now that they are BACK in the catalogue!!
So that is what I am using for my card.
Stamps, Ink and Paper plus a couple of embellies

I chose the Christmas Tree DSP cut to 10cm x 14.3cm
Then I die cut the middle of DSP with a Stitched Rectangle Die 5 1/2cm x 9cm
Next I die cut a piece of Soft Sea Foam cardstock  with the Stitched Rectangle Die
7 1/2cm x 11cm
I used 'O Christmas Tree' stamp with Old Olive Classic Stampin Pad
and stamped over the background with the words in
a random straight line pattern.

Now that the Soft Sea Foam cardstock is stamped all over with Old Olive words
Add Dimensionals to the piece of Christmas Tree DSP that you cut with the
Sm Stitched Rectangle
Die 5 1/2cm x 9cm
Adhere that to the stamped word background centering it.

Next I added the Gold Hoops from the Forever Fern Suite
I adhered it with 4 rolled up glue dots to stick it to the card.
Then I added some of the Old Olive ribbon from Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo pack

Then I added the Largest Christmas Tree sticker on top of the Gold Hoops
Then I took the Middle sized Christmas Tree, added Dimensional to it
and stuck it on top of the other tree.

Then I stamped 'O Christmas Tree' on the Banner Sticker and stuck it to the Hoop.
Added an insert of Soft Sea Foam and Stamped a tree and a sentiment inside.
