Happy Holidays!

Good day to all my bloggy friends!
Happy Tuesday! 
For today's post I have Christmas cards!!
I am so behind...LOL! I usually begin making my Christmas cards in January. WOW! We are now in July...so with the Christmas In July theme in mind here are my cards......


For the base of my Christmas cards, I used DCWV's "Gold & White" premium stack and the stitched rectangles die set from Gina Marie Designs. I used the "When I was a kid" cartridge to make the tags. It is one of my favorite cartridges! I adhered Christmas ornament stickers that I had in my holiday stash to the tags. They were my last two. For the pretty bows, I used the Small Bow dies from Pink & Main. The scallop border (gold) is from the Wild Card cartridge.
I used the Heidi Swapp Minc Heat Tool, Versamark Emboss Ink Pad and the WOW! gold embossing powder to stamp/emboss the "Happy Holidays" sentiment on to a die cut pennant.
I used the Jolly Jingles stamp set and the Stitched Pennant die set from Verve Stamps (no longer in business).
