Another card for the Christmas In July swap, this theme is Non-Traditional Colors. I CASED this card from a Fellow PhillyInker Julianna. She had made them for a make and take last year. I used Stampin' Up's Ornament punch to punch the ornaments, and then stamps from a couple of sets to emboss the designs on them. I do believe I used "Priceless" and "Snow Swirled" although I could be wrong about the flourish one. I stamped the image in Versamark and then embossed them with white embossing powder. The scallop edge is done with Stampin' Up's Scalloped edge punch. The cardstock and Patterened paper is all stuff I had on hand. The faux stitching is nice and straight due to my new favorite scoring tool and a handy little piercing tool that fits right into it's grooves.
I was pointed in the direction of this charity by a fellow Stampin Up Demonstrator, Melissa. They can use donations of cards, either Handmade, or Store bought for residents of nursing homes. What a great way to share your creativity, while brightening the day of others!!! Here is their website:

A mother of a 5 year old boy and a 8 year old girl. I love being a mom! I married a guy I met in first grade! We married May 18th, 2002.
I wanted to have a place that I could show some of my creations. When my sister is able to visit she always asks me what I have been working on, so I thought this way I could keep her updated! It's also a way to show some of my other friends and family what I have been working on! This also gives me a little push to get some things made and posted.
I hope you enjoy the things you find here, and maybe even find some inspiration! Some of the things found on my Blog are by Stampin' Up! Ask me how you can get the stamps, or feel free to look at the current catalog found in the sidebar.(it will download, it takes a few minutes). Feel free to ask me any questions!
