Christmas in July Week 2

Again this week I am sticking with the Stampin' Up! Color Challenge for July posted on Facebook. The challenge colors are Real Red, Shaded Spruce and Whisper White. I added So Saffron to my card design this week. The featured stamp set is Making Christmas Bright which was carried over from the 2018 Holiday catalog to the 2019-20 Annual Catalog. This is a really fun set with lots of potential and perfect for anyone who loves Christmas lights!! I happen to be one of those people.

My card this week is clean and simple. I used the Stitched Labels Dies as well as the Layering Circle Dies. The addition of Metallic Pearls added that little extra something to the card.

As I was stamping I decided to try an additional layout for the string of lights, but keep the greeting exactly the same. The greeting is actually two separate stamps which makes it super easy to use two different colors to stamp. I used Stampin' Write Markers in Real Red and Shaded Spruce to color in the bulbs in the string of lights for both cards. I can't decide which card I like better.
