Christmas in July

I've been sorting through my stamp stash, and WOW do I have a lot of Christmas stamp sets!  I decided that now is as good a time as ever to really get started on my Christmas cards.  I chose my stamp set first, did a little Google search for inspiration, and found Nicole Magouirk's card. I changed up a few things, depending on what all I had in my stash to work with.  Here's my take:

I need to add a few sequins!  But otherwise, I am very happy with how this turned out.  Instead of a vellum overlay background, I used Fog ink for a tone on tone look.  I wish you could see the sparkle of the cord I used to hang the ornaments.

Supplies used:

Bead Party Braiding Cord
Paper Studio heavy weight white card stock
Recollections silver embossed card stock
Simon Says Stamp inks: Fog, Spring Rain, and Scuba
Simon Says Stamp Ornaments stamp and die set
Recollections background stamp
Brilliance silver ink
Filigree Platinum embossing powder
Bazzill vellum card stock

Thanks for stopping by!
