*Dies R Us - Marianne and Spellbinders dies

I don't know why I have such a hard time making Christmas cards in the middle of summer, but I do. It just feels off to me. With that said, I made this silver Christmas card for a couple of Christmas in July challenges.

I just love these Marianne die/embossing folders, they're so intricate, elegant and pretty. And I've been wanting to use this candle die for a long time.

That's it for now, thanks for stoppin' by.
And thanks to all the challengers above for lettin' me play along, you're awesome!

I agree! It is so difficult to get into the whole Winter coziness thing when it's 90` outside!! Still, this is lovely!! I love the simplicity and the elegance of the silver paper, nice job!! Thanks for sharing with all of us at PIP Challenges!!
