Christmas in July

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Inspired by a few challenges, I decided to make a Christmas card! Always nice to get an early start on them! Card is cut from red Recollection cardstock and measures 5" x 5". Patterned papers are from The Paper Studio Winter Wonderland paper pad and solid paper is Craft Smith Embossed Neutrals.

Cricut Cartridges:
Santa's Village - Santa with stocking is one of the print and cut images. It is cut 3" high. I have always liked the images on this cartridge, but I never bought the Imagine machine. I am happy that the images are available in Cricut Design Space subscription.
Simply Sweet - Circle is cut 3.5".
Anna's Christmas Cards and Embellishments - Sentiment is written on an inserted square shape that was sized to 4.26" w x 2.75" rectangle. This is used inside the card.

Merry Christmas sentiment on front of card is from Mary's "Home for Christmas" stamp set at CARDZ TV.  Love these stamps! Thanks again Mary!

I added a green crinkle ribbon bow that I received from Karen at Little Scrap Pieces. For the finishing touch, I added the red rhinestones in the right upper corner.
