Christmas in August! (aka "Yay! 1st Christmas card made!" LOL!)

So I've been on holidays for a bit, and one of the challenges I set out for myself, was to take a color combo (Crumb Cake, Garden Green, Cajun Craze, and a neutral of Very Vanilla), a sentiment stamp set (Word Play), a Christmas Stamp Set (Delightful Decorations, and then I cheated and added a second set Tree Trimmings. I justified this with the thought that they are the same "type" of :o), and a set that I didn't think of as being a typical one for the color combo I chose (I {Heart} Hearts) and see what I could come up with! I also took a bevy of accessories and punches along, so here goes! Oh, and I took a copy of July/Aug PaperCrafts Mag, and the following ideas are all adapted from other companies, to Stampin' Up! products. Hope you enjoy!

I LOVE this card! To get the grid look score the back of your card stock in the grid pattern, then sponge on some ink. Super fast, super cute!

Ingredients: (All SU!)
Very Vanilla CS, Crumb Cake CS and Classic Ink, Garden Green CS and Classic Ink, Cajun Craze CS and Classic Ink, Linen Thread, (retired) corduroy Chocolate Chip Button, Lace Border Punch, Decorative Label Punch, Word Play, Tree Trimmings. LO pg 22.
