Christmas in July!

Hi Crafters,

I'm back with another Christmas card!  Shock horror!  I was really itching to get going with my Christmas crafting and this card practically made itself!  Although judging by the craftermath left behind, I think I had something to do with it!

Anyway, enough of my rambling and on to the card in question.

I started with Centura Pearl cardstock in royal blue and made my first layer.  Next I embossed a piece of silver linen cardstock with a holly embossing folder from Crafter's Companion.  For my main topper I heat embossed the JustRite Holly Swirls background stamp using Versamark and then added white detail embossing powder.  I love the result.  My bauble was cut using Spellbinders 2011 Heirloom Ornaments and then I stamped the sentiment from the JustRite Merry Wishes Vintage Labels Seven set and heat embossed that too.  

My corner dies came from the Spellbinders Holly Accents set and the ribbon is from Creative Expressions.  Using a ruler for accuracy, I attached a line of faceted gems to create the string for the bauble, which was layered with two sets of foam pads to give dimension.  

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge:
JustRite Challenge #125 - Non-Traditional Christmas

Happy crafting,
Rachel x
