{Stamp Simply} Christmas in July

Hi everyone!  Sorry that it has been so quiet on my blog this last week.  My mom passed away on Monday night, so things are a little out of the normal here, and it might take a few weeks before I'm back to a normal posting schedule on my blog.

I do have an elegant card to share today using the JustRite Christmas Vintage Labels Seven set, the Tufted Vintage Labels Background Stamp and matching Vintage Labels Seven Dies.

I stamped the Tufted Vintage Labels background stamp onto a piece of red cardstock using red ink for a tone-on-tone look.  I stamped the curly-q frame in red ink onto white cardstock and then cut it out with the matching dies.  I inked up the little holly stamp with water-based markers and cut them out before adding them as embellishments to my frame, and then I used two different colors of green ink for a little variegation on the sentiment.  I popped the sentiment panel up over a piece of sheer ribbon and add a few rhinestones for sparkle.  Not too hard or time-consuming and fairly flat for mailing - a perfect combination!

Here are the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store products that I used on my card...
