Christmas in August

Hey, hey! Hope you had a relaxing weeken and that this week started off good. I did some housework and since the weather was so nice I also did some hiking. Nothing extreme though, just a short walk. I also did some crafting. And I made a Christmas card for a change. September is nearly here and this means December is not far away either so I thought I better start thinking about Christmas. I still have 2 or 3 Christmas cards from last year, but will need to make the rest. I don't mind though. I just LOVE Christmas and everything connected to it. And Christmas cards and decorations are one of my favourite things to make. :)

I actually made this card for a Christmas in August card swap that I participate in. I hope the lady I made this for will like it.

For this card I decided to use a Stempelglede stamp and papers from DCWV - I just love the shades of light and dark blue with a touch of silver. Around the image and also on papers I sprinkled some white embossing powder.

I received those snowflake die-cuts from a friend of mine a while back and I thought they would be perfect for this project. I covered them with glitter glue to add some bling to my card.

The white "dots" are actually glittery brads that I had in my stash and besides those I also used crystals, doilies, sequins and lace to decorate my card.

Have you started working on your Christmas cards yet?
