Another Christmas in July Card

I have been using my time watching videos and how others use techniques and helpful hints in card making and watching others use their talents with others to make a card their own!!!!  You Tube is fantastic for that and I found a channel that has videos that are called "Scraplift Friday" cards by 47CMC.  This card was done from her scrap lift that she took from a Christmas Trend Magazine some time ago. 

I used K &Company "Yuletide" paper and various embellishments from may stash!!!  I was able to make duplicate labels in just the right size with my cricut as I don't have alot of free standing dies for my Cuddlebug or punches.  I have to say the Cricut is a space saver that way!!! 

I did do some stamping on the label to make the sentiment work with the label.  The hardest part was picking out the right color ink to go with the card.   Stickled the edges around the card after I distressed the edges, and dug into my button stash too!!!!  I am entering this in My Craft Spot "Christmas in July" challenge.  I think this will be an easy card to reproduce and give others a nice little touch of a Northern Winter!!!

This is a lovely Christmas card, good idea to make labels on your Cricut and then stamp on them. Love your colours.
