Christmas in July

Friday Try-Day started off with three great cards they expected and then
 the ladies got a special surprise of a 
Christmas In July Card!!
This Splitcoast Stampers inspired card was so much fun to make, 
and they loved using the traditionally "halloween" Drippy Goo punch for the candles.

Here's how to make one for yourself!
Begin with an A2 background in red... 8.5 x 5.5 folded to 4.25 x 5.5
White 4 x 5.25 embossed with Snowflake design by Cuttlebug (Provo Craft)
Red cardstock cut to 2.75 x 3.75.  Add strip of punched Drippy Goo across top. 
Cut red/white piece into three - 1 x 2.75, 1.25 x 2.75 and the remainder is 1.5 x 2.75.
Use corner rounder (I used We R. Memory Keepers 1/4 Chompers) on candle edges.
Distress sides of candles with Vintage Photo Distress ink for depth.
Layer candles to desired positions and trim bottom edges evenly.  Glue together.
Place as single unit on card, 5.8" from the bottom of white card.
Punch out four holly leaves and six branch punch pieces.  Mold with ball stylus.  Adhere.
Use standard office hole punch for berries.  Mold to cup shape, invert and glue in place.
Add flames cut from flower petals.
Accent with red and silver Stickles.

Enjoy!  I'll be back with you again soon!
Happy crafting ~
