Paper Players Challenge 54: Christmas in July

Another week, and another fun challenge from The Paper Players!  With the new SU catalog debuting July 1, I knew I wanted to use a new set for my Christmas card this week.  I am also starting to think about the holidays since those craft fairs will be here soon!  Every year I want to start I made  both a card and a rosette table decoration using the new set, Pennant Parade.

I used the set to make these trees. How fun that the set comes with the tree base (and a lot of other images too!)  For the background, I embossed whisper white using the Northern Flurry embossing folder.  I used some retired DSP, and combined with Old Olive and Cranberry Cobbler for a traditional color set.

I love making these rosettes!  It is a quick and very easy display!

Enjoy your holiday weekend, and while is may be hot out, think about the holidays and join our challenge!

  1. Hi Lauri,
    I LOVE the embossed snowflakes behind your sweet little trees! The DSP is the perfect thing to highlight your gorgeous card too! The centerpiece is very cool! Such a clever idea!

  2. Lauri, very pretty card and centerpiece, great choice of paper, love the embossed ww piece behind the focal point, perfect!

  3. Adorable card, Lauri! I LOVE it! The bling and the embossing are perfect!

  4. Lauri, I love it! The embossing is such a beautiful touch behind the trees and I love how you shortened up the Word Window punch to fit the sentiment. Great tip! Love that fabby table decor, too. So fun with the jingle bells. Hugs! :)

  5. Ooh, your card is lovely Laurie, and I too love that embossed background it really makes the trees "pop" right off the card. I also love the medallion as a table decor with the bells, such a lovely touch.
    What a great backdrop for a picture, that lawn looks so beautiful and lush!!!

  6. This is lovely, Laurie! Fingers crossed that Pennant Parade is in our next cattie :) I love your roseete too. It would make a fantastic table decoration!

  7. Like everyone else, I love the trees on top of the embossed panel--such a great detail. Love those little trees all lined up--so cute! Perfect holiday colors too. GREAT card!

  8. Wow! What a great way to use this set!

  9. What a lovely, clean card! I love the embossing - it makes for a much nicer finish. Theresa x

    what fabulous projects you shared with us this week. I LOVE the fact that you added the ribbon but kept it simple so as not to detract from the fabulous trees on the snowflake background. Really gorgeous!

  11. fabulous Christmas projects! love the simplicity of the Christmas card... would be so easy to make multiples.


Thank you SO much for taking a few minutes to leave me a note!
