Two for Christmas (CCEE1029, TSC0723)

This first card is for the CCEE Stampers challenge which is a "Christmas in July" sketch. The base card is Garden Green with strips of designer paper, and it's embossed with Holly Ribbons Cuttlebug embossing folder. There's narrow satin ribbon in between the strips, one has a bow. The medallion was punched from Very Vanilla and Real Red using the 1-3/4" Circle and 2-3/8" Scallop Circle Punches. The stamp from "Holiday Best" (retired) was colored with Markers.
This card is for the Twisted Sistahs' Challenge which was also "Christmas in July". Now I have a head start on my Christmas cards! This one is Bashful Blue, Whisper White and retired SU! DSP. I used a Scallop Square Nestie on the DSP and a Labels Nestie behind the punched ornament (Delightful Decorations stamp set and Ornament Punch). The sentiment was embossed with Silver Embossing Powder and there's a silver cord on the ornament. Thanks again for stopping by!!

I really like the candy cane paper and the fab embossing folder that you used.

Love the blue and silver, those colors are always so pretty for Christmas cards.

Great job on both challenges.
Thanks for playing.
