Christmas in August - Holiday Sneak Peek - FMS150

Welcome! Today I have a fun card using ALL new product from the upcoming holiday catalog (release date is August 28, 2014). I used the Freshly Made Sketches sketch as my jumping off point and the card came together very quickly...I love it when that happens!


Christmas in August - Holiday Sneak Peek - FMS150

What do you think?!?! Isn't the paper DIVINE??? And the coordinating tree punch and stamps?? And the sentiment?? And the snowflake sequins?? All available to purchase on August 28th! That gives you lots of time to make those Christmas cards!

The card base color is Soft Sky. It coordinates perfectly with this paper design from the All is Calm Specialty Designer Series Paper. I used it again as my base for stamping my trees, which were stamped with Versamark Ink using the Festival of Trees photopolymer stamp set and heat embossed with White Embossing Powder. A quick punch with the new Tree Punch and they are ready to go! Good news...this stamp set and punch are also available as a bundle so you save 15%! 

I also heat embossed the sentiment from the Watercolor Winter Too stamp set and then wrapped my card with Whisper White Seam Binding. This seam binding is light and airy, perfect for the feel of this card! I then layered on some Frosted Sequins to give my card a bit of bling. Sequins are easily adhered with Crystal Effects. It has wonderful grabbing power and dries clear.

Of course I HAD to line my envelope with matching paper!

Are you loving what you are seeing? If so, please shoot me an e-mail and I will get a catalog out to you right away so you can plan your shopping list before the big day...August 28th!

And thank you for allowing me to wander into Christmas this early in the year. I promise to go back to summer! Well...I may throw some more fall into there too :)

Thanks for stopping by!
