Digi Haven Challenge Christmas In July

The theme is Christmas in July at Digi Haven this week. (Oh, I really do not want to think about Christmas yet!  lol...especially when the temperature has been in the high 90's!) Use any Christmas or Winter Free Digi.

Here is my card:

Finished Card: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

Cardstock: Green, Red, Patterned Paper and White (for printing the images)
Little Scraps of Heaven Digital Image (Reindeer)
Paper Smooches Digital Image (Presents)
Spectrum Noir Markers
Queen and Co Pearls Berry Red, 3 Medium
Black Wire
Dark Brown Pigment Ink
Small Hole Punch
Mounting Tape

I printed out the presents twice and single layered them over each other. I double layered the reindeer. I cut off the handle on the presents image and replaced it with black wire. I rubbed the brown pigment ink around the edges of the patterned paper to "age" it a little. I punched out the small red dots and added them to the gift bag.

Now really, I can't believe that it's July already! Where is this year going? However, soon enough it will be the Christmas season and we will be sending out those Christmas cards to our friends and family. Guess this is as good a time to start making them, as any. I just love these two images. You could use them together, as I did, or separately.

Hope you decide to join this challenge...just remember to link the free digital image.

I am entering this into CardzTV "Christmas in July Challenge".

Thanks for stopping by.
