Here we are at the last day of July, and the last of the twelve days of Christmas in July. Geez, that went fast! Well, in a few short days you will be able to order from the Aug-Dec Mini, so that's something to look forward to. And there are so many more things that I didn't get a chance to use, I'm sure they will be appearing here in the near future!
For the final card, I used the Wishes & Wonder bundle (part of the Wonder of the Season Suite) again, because I just HAD to use that sleigh somehow. (Going for a sleigh ride is on my bucket list.) The holly bunch is part of the Wonder of the Season Memories & More Card Pack, also part of the suite. Lots of neat stickers in there!
The Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper makes a nice background without having to emboss. I was going to cover the whole card front with it, but having the greeting on a label on top didn't look right. I thought making it a bit narrower, leaving room for the greeting (Itty Bitty Christmas) at the bottom, looked better.
