Welcome to the Christmas in July Blog Hop! Each Saturday of the month there will be a different hop featuring holiday themed projects. We have a great line-up of talented Cricut crafters who will be sharing their creativity with you today. And, we have a giveaway - a Christmas Cards cartridge!

Now on to my projects:
For the first Card, I decided to use blues as my main color palette. The pattern paper is from DCWV Winter Combo Matstack. The snowman is cut from Winter Woodland at 2.7". Snowflakes are cut at 2" from Accent Essentials. I used the iRock to adhere 2 blue and 1 green gem to the snowflakes to add a little sparkle. Broken China Distressed Ink was used on the edges of the light blue square. Finally, pop dots were used to adhere this friendly little guy.
This next card I used more traditional Christmas colors. Pattern paper is from DCWV The Christmas Matstack. Santa is cut at 2.5" from the Christmas Solutions cartridge and white flocking was added to his hat and beard. He is adhered with pop dots for added dimension. The circles were cut in graduating sizes from Plantin Schoolbook. The smallest circle was cut from white paper and colored with Peeled Paint Distressed Ink to give it a shaded look. Prima Flower poinsettias and 3 black iRock gems were added as finishing touches to help balance the card.
