JustRite Friday Challenge #101: Christmas in July

My preferred type of card to create is classy/elegant and I'm sooo thrilled that this Christmas card definitely fits my standards! The challenge over at JustRite that ends today thankfully asks us to create for Christmas and I NEED many more cards for the holiday, so at least now one more is finished -- YAY!!!

Using my beloved Radiant Rectangles, I embossed 2 layers in white and aqua to layer onto my white card, rounding all corners to compliment those on the Radiant Rectangles. I stamped/embossed/die cut my ornament from a favorite JR Christmas clear stamp set, also die cutting the center opening with a custom JR Antique Labels One die, also a big FAV. Noel is stamped/embossed and sits below the ornament, which I adhered with foam adhesive for depth. LOVE the dimension this and the embossed rectangles create along with my embossing powder. Sadly my camera (or just the operator) couldn't pick up the gold flecks in my EP or how totally sparkly all those gems are in real life -- sigh!

Beautiful card love the soft blue and white together for Christmas. Really like how you used the die to emboss rather than cutting sure leaves a nice design . The button on the sheer bow adds the finishing touch. Thanks for dropping by and leaving your lovely comment on my blog

I couldn't be last, I still had another challenge to enter and my card wasn't even started. I guess we work best under pressure!
This card is lovely, I really like blue on winter cards.I'm jealous of your skill with your dies, I keep looking at your cards and wondering how you do that!

you always seem to keep that stunning card in at the last minute. Perfect card. I kind of lost track of days and did not make it again.
