Christmas in July Week 4

I was at a loss of what to post for the last week of Christmas in July. I am working on a set of projects for display at an August gathering of demonstrators and I was going to wait to share some of those ideas until after the meeting. However, I really wanted to share this card with you and it is a perfect ending to my Christmas in July series. This week's card features the Rustic Retreat stamp set which is a new set in the Annual Catalog. It is a set that has a little bit of everything which makes it a perfect set to own. I will share more cards made with this stamp set in the upcoming weeks.

I love Christmas and all the colors that go along with it, not just the traditional red and green, but other colors as well. I particularly enjoy blue and silver and that is what led me to design today's card. I was inspired by a card made by Lori Lemke, another Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrator. It features Night of Navy, but also uses Seaside Spray which is one of Stampin' Up!'s In-Colors for 2019-21. Seaside Spray pairs beautifully with Night of Navy and has a hint of gray in it which makes me think of winter skies in the Northeast of the US.

Rustic Retreat has a lovely log cabin image that makes it perfect not just for Christmas, but year round as well. The greeting is also found in this same stamp set. I did pair these images with the evergreen trees from Rooted in Nature. I'm very happy with this monochromatic card that I will be making more of to have in my Christmas card stash.
