card style

Do you know that old saying, Christmas in July? Well, today I have a little Christmas in July inspiration to share with you.

You may have noticed I’ve missed a few days that I don’t usually here on my blog. Did you miss me? In between summer activities and migraines, things have just been a little topsy turvy here. I thought that sharing one of my Card Style projects would be the perfect solution in giving me something to share and say hello while I work on getting back on track.

Card Style is the latest Paper Crafts Special Publication and today’s project is one of the projects I had published in this magazine. If you haven’t seen it yet…it’s fabulous and definitely a keeper. You can find Card Style at your local scrap or book stores or on-line direct from Paper Crafts Magazine.

Surprise, surprise (wink), all my designs were for the Shabby Chic/vintage category and this festive Webster’s Pages creation combines many of my favorite things.

  • distress crackle paint – check
  • twine – check
  • stitching – check
  • pretty muted colors – check
  • buttons – check



Supplies: Home of the Holidays Petite Papers , Fabric Fancies by Webster’s Pages,  buttons by Melissa Frances, Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink by Ranger, sewing machine, twine, Classic Star Die by Spellbinders, Picket Fence Distress Crackle Paint by Ranger, grungeboard by Advantus

Have you started on your holiday cards yet? I have a few like this card above all ready in a stash for later this year. After a few abysmally chaotic years I’m committed to sending out cards this year. Hold me to it!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I love this card – non traditional colors and that tree with the buttons is awesome! I am half way finished with my cards – I started in January and I’ve been doing 4 cards a month to get them all finished by hopefully October – before the Christmas rush!!!

  2. Outstanding!
