What! Santa Claus is coming to town? It is only July. Well, he is making an early appearance for the INKspired blog hop ‘Christmas in July’ Challenge. I normally like to start my Christmas cards in July, that way I have a good stack of Christmas cards ready to go out in December when life is always crazy!
It is just so colourful, retro and simply fun. I have used mostly the Santa Express printed paper, I fussy cut the train images.
I have a thing that cards should always have a greeting on the front but I played around with the placement and even tried all different greetings. I am not totally sure I got it right, it could change before I give it away in December.
Inside, I have again added some fussy cut elements. The greeting is from Inspired Thoughts Stamp Set.
Can you tell this card is an extra-long slim line card, it is like 23cm long. It required I make a custom envelope.
I had to have this super cute image of The Clauses.
I always feel like a matching envelope makes the card that little more special.
Inside the bottom flap, I attached two magnets and added them behind the panel of The Clauses to keep the envelope closed.
That was a lot of photos! Now it is time for a little more eye candy when you hop around, to see what the rest of my team has come up with for this ‘Christmas In July’ challenge. Start by hopping over to Julie Martin
