MCE-Christmas in July

It's that time again!!! MCE (Monthly Card Exchange)
This time the theme was my all time favorite theme.......CHRISTMAS. Oh do I love that time of year. Last year I did 130 Christmas cards...my family and friends are now spoiled....I have been told...I am NOT to send them a store bought card or they will be insulted. Guess I better get
busy or I will be burning the midnight oil getting them done. Half the year has already gone by.
Well, on to my card. Some of you remember this post "Glitter, Tissues and Glue Oh My". I used the same technique on this background as I used on the flowers except I stamped all kinds of snowflakes with Staz-On on the Acetate.
I matted it onto a piece of cardstock and then matted it onto the white background. Merry Christmas stamp came from a set of stamps called "From Our Home Set" which is the cutest Mouse stamp set. I matted again onto darker cardstock and punch a snowflake out of the corner. The snowmen image I used is from the set called "Let it Snow". I stamped and colored it with Dick's markers, trimmed around it and set it on top of the acetate. The ribbon bow was ribbon I bought at Michaels. I am very bow challenged but am getting better!
Remember how we give a card and we get a card back? Well take a look at the gorgous MCE (below) that was given to me!! The photo just does not do it justice. It was stamped, heat embossed, colored and I just love it so much.
Kim...thank you!!!
