Christmas In July

We are featuring Christmas in July today at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration. Since it's still a few weeks too early to get my hands on the Holiday Catalog preorder items, I decided to do some Christmas punch art.

Introducing my Joyful Chevron Trees. The card base is Cherry Cobbler with an Early Espresso layer. I punched the chevrons out of Always Artichoke card stock. The tree truck is the smaller of the two tickets from the Ticket Duo Builder Punch.

The Joy is stamped in Cherry Cobbler on Very Vanilla cardstock using the Metro Type Alphabet. My final addition to the card was to color the Vintage Faceted Buttons with the Medium Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities.

It's only 154 days until Christmas. Are you ready?
