Last year, starting Christmas cards in July was very popular at my card buffets. I kept one on the rotation and when it got closer to Christmas, I added another (2 of 12 were Christmas). I am doing that again this year and this is the first card (for July and August). Another new one will start at the September buffet next week.
I had recently cleaned out and reorganized my retired designer paper. I used some of that for this card. These particular papers are retired, and so are the colors (bravo burgundy, kiwi kiss, river rock).
Stamp Set: Greetings of the Season (retired)
Card Stock: crumb cake, very vanilla, retired dsp
Stamp Pad: early espresso
Other: apothecary accents framelits, lacy brocade embossing folder (retired), very vanilla seam binding ribbon, dimensionals, pearls.
