Christmas in July

Hi, how are you doing today?  I have still been working on Christmas cards this month.  So much fun when there is no time pressure.  These cards fit a couple challenges, too!

These were so easy, I just stamped and colored in the background.  The partridge was heat embossed with Sparkle embossing powder.  I filled in the colored parts on this card with Gelly Roll stardust gel pen.  

To illustrate (further) how I cannot just make a multiple of a card, here is a variation.  I didn't add as much sparkle to this card, either, but I like the variation of putting the panel on the dark grey cardstock.  

Supplies: Gina K Designs Stately Flowers 5, Holiday Cheer, and the banner is from an unknown set, Versafine Ink, Memento Ink, various markers, Gelly Roll stardust pen, black self adhesive dots.

I would love to participate in the following challenge:

both versions look great, so it's a toss-up to me which one I prefer. I like those sparkly banners with the bird - great Christmas cards for your stash!

How lovely. The way you used your banners is so unique. The partridge is adorable.

Maybe an easy card but the layout is so eye-catching and very creative x I'm a bit like you in that I think I am going to do multiples of the card but usually end up 'playing' with them x
