As soon as I saw this card idea on Pinterest from Sue Stampfield.com I knew I had to use the design for my fall card making parties. I had to use the same color combination because I fell in love with the gingham ribbon.
Use your stamp sets and tools for more than they were intended! This card idea is using the new Carols of Christmas but using it for a masculine Birthday card idea! Clever, right?! It is always a good idea to make your stamping supplies go a little further! This is the perfect card for the hunters or nature lovers on your Birthday card list!
Want to know what makes this card Quick and Easy? Start with a classic layout and add pretty paper to do much of the heavy lifting on your background! The beautiful Daisy Delight Bundle adds both the focal point and the greeting! Don't you just love when a stamp set does double duty? Change up the greeting and this card could be for almost any occasion!
Supplies are not my problem! Using them is!
Do you fill your crafting space with tons of pretty paper, but don't ever seem to get around to using it? Be honest, could you be classified as a paper hoarder?
Did your stack of stamp sets go uninked and UNLOVED over the summer?
You can tell me, I promise you won't get put into detention!

Christmas in July! Getting a jump start on Christmas cards is a great way to spend a very hot day! That's what a few friends and I did last Sunday. Unfortunately with all the other activities calling during the busy summer months it is sometimes hard to gather at a specific time with stamping friends. Boy don't I know that! That is why I like to create quick and easy card ideas that can be made in the little bits of spare time you get! In your own home! In your own time!
Here are the details for this lovely, but easy card!
Cardbase: Whisper White ( 81/2" x 11" cut in half) 8 1/2" x 5 1/2". Left fold to make card front 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" (you can get two cards from each sheet of cardstock)
Pretty paper layer: Be Merry Designer Series Paper. Cut to 4" x 5 1/4" (you can get six of these from one piece of paper)
Greetings Layers: Garden Green cardstock (approx 3 1/4" x 3 1/4") background and Whisper White cardstock approx 3" x 3"
Ink: Garden Green
Your order today will earn you at least one $5 Bonus Days coupon that could be used starting August 1st to purchase the stamp set used Carols of Christmas!

Until the end of July, you will also get the Essentials Gift Pack and the stamp set used on this card Carols for Christmas FREE!
Get creative today! I'd love to see how many cards you could make using this layout as a template! Change the card base to Cherry Cobbler or Garden Green and rotate the color of the accent to greeting layer. Maybe use the green side of the paper and use Cherry Cobbler for an accent! If you make your own version of this card, please share it with us on the Facebook page!
Six months from today will be Christmas Eve! It seems like a lot of time, but there are things you can do ahead of time that will let you have the most fun on those special days! You don't want to try and make cards or worse yet, give up because you just don't have anytime to make anything! Christmas in July card making events were born to help us with our cardmaking and we figured we weren't the only ones!
Our thoughts are: Start now, get done early, and enjoy more time with the special people in our lives when the Holidays roll around!
There are three of us who stamp together, so we call ourselves the Stamping Sisters. The group was started by Teri of Folded Hugs. She presented this card idea at our first Christmas in July event.
She choose the fun and versatile stamp set Glamper! As you can see, it makes a cute Christmas card, but you can doll up the camper in several Holiday themes or just doll up the siding to use this time of year! Guests were able to add their own soft watercolor highlights and a few pine boughs using the Pretty Pines Thinlet Dies.
The basics of this card include:
- Cardbase (Whisper White) 11" x 5 1/2" folded in half along the 11" side for a top fold.
- Cardbase Accent (Cherry Cobbler) 5 1/4" x 4" embossed with the Woodland Textured embossing folder
- Focal Point Accent layer (Old Olive) 4 1/4" x 3 1/4"
- Focal Point stamped layer (watercolor paper) 4" x 3"
If you want to join in the Fun and get some of your Christmas card making done too, get yourself set up with some tools and supplies now and
Watch for more Christmas in July ideas the rest of this month!
