Christmas in July

Christmas in July! Whimsy's newest release just hit the store shelves today. These cute and fun Matchbox Mice Quick Card Fronts making it easy to create Christmas cards in a flash.

For my first card I combined the cute NEW Matchbox Mice Christmas Quick Card Fronts with the NEW Holly Frame die set. I cut out the large frame from white glitter paper. Then I used the smaller rectangular die to cut out the Quick Card panel to fit in the larger holly frame. I decorated my card using the included bow and holly dies. The sentiment is included with the Quick Card Fronts and I cut it out using one of the Quick Strips dies.

On my second card I used the large Holly Frame die and the smaller rectangle die to create a frame. I used Distress inks, Distress Oxide inks and Distress Spritzes with an ink smooshing technique to ink the Holly frame. To add more texture I sprinkled the inked frame with white acrylic paint. I added the frame to one of the QCF's, added the sentiment and a few embellies (sequin and left over cut out holly leaves).
