Christmas in July

A very Merry July Christmas to all,
Welcome to my first Christmas card of the year, today it all about
Couture Creations Christmas Eve die and Christmas Emporium paper collections

I chose 3 contrasting pattern papers from Christmas Emporium range,
which I have torn along all sides all a little smaller than the other
Here I cut cardstock, to fit behind the poker dot and greeting paper, using my non stick scissors to distress all the edges

From some metallic cardstock, I cut one each of the Hanging Ornaments and Be Merry,
both from Christmas Eve
Here I cut 2 of Vintage Rose Collection  Daffodil Spray, and cut of the daffodil end,
keeping the long flourish end
After layering the first pattern paper, cardstock and 2nd pattern paper, using the Turbo Glue Pen, place Hanging Ornaments, to the bottom of your card 
Glue the next 2 layers together, place 3D foam dots, behind the blue cardstock, to raise this level, I added some 2mm Gemstones  Amethyst, to the Christmas Eve Die  Hanging Ornaments for a touch of sparkle (my new favourite thing)
Here I added some 2mm Gemstones  Amethyst, the Be Merry die cut,
which I placed towards the top right hand corner
Placing the 2 Vintage Rose Collection  Daffodil Spray cut offs behind, 3 spritzed English roses

Here I pulled the centre out of a larger English Rose, to make the flower smaller,
to fit the size of my card
Now I hope your enjoy this quick card, but most of all have fun with it
