Christmas in July

The first Christmas creation of the year!
I just have to say, I think cards like this are SO hard to make!
I dont know why, I think I have a bit of trouble with Christmas cards
in general. I`m not comfortable with red, and its just difficult.
But on the other hand I do believe I am going to make a bit of "boring"
cards like this (not that I think seing other people post these cards are boring,
but I do find them a bit boring to make), because I think this is something I could
sell at the market before Christmas. So just now I had an idea
that I could make magnets for Christmas with my Magnolias etc,
so I could use them more.

I used papers from Poppydesign, doilyes, flowers from WOC and Kort og Godt,
pearls, brads, snowflakes from my Martha Stewart puncher, and some berries I cant seem
to remember where I got. The sentiment is in norwegian, about friendship.
I used Diamont Stickles on the snowflakes.
This is the first of the three cards I plan to send to Hjertebodens Juleblogg.
I also join Totally Gorjuss at their Christmas Challenge.

Beautiful card Anne!
I love this style of card and very much wish I could make them but I really struggle if there's no stamped and coloured image!
As always, I love your embellishments and those red berries are perfect!

Nydelig kort, Anne. Og absolutt ikke (og da mener jeg IKKE) kjedelig kort. Det var veldig lekkert. Og enig, at røde julekort kan bli vanskelig og kjedelig. Men bruk andre farger! Blått er veldig fornøyelig å bruke. Ta en titt i bloggen min for november/desember 2011, så ser du andre farger. :) Jeg har allerede laget 12 julekort i år, og håper å få laget 3 kort i juli også. Nesten ferdig! ;-) Da rekker jeg iallefall deadline som er rundt 10 desember. Bør vel ha en rundt 25-30 kort, tenker jeg....

Dette var da overhodet ikke kjedelig, selv om vi er vante med å se motiv fra deg;) Lekkert med danderte blomster, bær og snøfnugg og liker designet med papirene og kakeservietten. Ha en flott kveld. Klem Bettina
