Hi everyone!  We are in the middle of a heat wave here in PA so I hope you are able to stay cool.  I spent the day working on my Christmas in July card swap.  I made two cards for my swap that this is one of the cards.

I used a retired hostess set called The More the Merrier.  I simply stamped the image and colored it using my Stampin' Up! markers.  I kept the coloring of my image simple and I only used 2 blue markers and 1 orange marker for my coloring.

I was going to add some glitter along the bottom of the snowman image, but I decided not too because sometimes the glitter makes such a mess and I wasn't sure if the people who received my card would want that mess.

My background is embossed using my big shot and my Northern Flurry embossing folder.  This folder is only has an image on part of it so I made sure to place the embossed portion along the top of my card so that I could see it better.

I stamped my sentiment and punched it using my word window punch and that's about it, what a super easy card!   Tomorrow I will be posting the other Christmas card I made for my swap.  Have a great rest of the day and stay cool!
