Christmas in July - day 1

It's that time of year again, Christmas in July. Since I have not really started my Christmas cards yet I have decided to try and play along with the Christmas in July week at Catch the Bug.

Here is my card for Day 1: Sparkle & Shine

Next to the craft cardstock I used shiny gold for the middle. The stars are creme with glitter on them and the cute snowman is from Beccy's Place.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
- Catch the Bug - Christmas In July - Day 1 - Make it Sparkle!
- Beccy's Place - July Challenge
- Creative Craft Cottage - Challenge #91 Christmas in July
- Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas - CHNC challenge 342


  1. I like this shade of green and what a great contrast it makes to the copper shine and Kraft. It's great to have you preparing for Christmas along with us at Catch the Bug, good luck in the challenge!

  2. A super Christmas card Petra, such a sweet snowman and great design.

  3. Great colour combination Petra, not one that you see often for Christmas cards. I love the shiny card stock in the centre of the card and the very fine green borders around the outside. The stars are a nice touch too.

  4. Wonderful Christmas card Petra, love the snowman.
