Twelve Days of Christmas (in July!) Day 8

Happy Saturday to you!  I hope you have a wonderful weekend planned with friends and family and, of course, some stamping time too!  This weekend we are tackling our VERY long TO-DO list!  I spent time yesterday making a master list and then also did one specifically for my DH.  He needs to get cracking...and so do I!  We have family coming from Austria for a visit in September and our house needs to be ship shape for their arrival!  Not sure how much stamping time there'll be in my future this weekend...hopefully a little!  Here is a little inspiration to get you thinking festive thoughts...

Twelve Days of Christmas in July Day 8 featuring the Evergreen and Greetings of the Season stamp sets

Inside view with sentiment from the Beautiful Season set.
Can you tell I really love the new Evergreen stamp set?  I have several other sets from the new Holiday catty just waiting to see ink while I play around exploring the possibilities of this one!  This card is a really quick and easy one, made stunning by the beautiful embossed pattern.  I used the new Lacy Brocade TIEF and Core'dinations card stock in Cherry Cobbler.  So gorgeous!  I'll be using that combo again for sure!  Not sure you can tell in the photo, but the Merry Christmas on the front is heat embossed in gold.  All in all, a quick, yet elegant holiday card.  Here is the rundown of the supplies used in the creation of this card.  * Starred items are available August 1st.
