Christmas in July: Day 2 {Technique Tuesday}

Hello friends! It's day 2 of Christmas in July! Here on my blog, we're spending my summer vacation with a bucketful of holiday spirit. (It makes sense. . . trust me.) Scroll on down if you missed day 1! 

I have two Christmas cards for you today, featuring stamps from Technique Tuesday. This set is called Tis the Season. I LOVE the paper-piece this Christmas tree. It's so much fun to combine patterns and colors! If you were with me for the last Christmas in July post, I shared my love of non-holiday papers and non-traditional color combinations. Here's some more proof, in case you didn't believe me! Ha! 

On this first card, I used Carta Bella's Sew Lovely 6x6 pad. Certainly not Christmas paper, but there's no reason it can't be! 

And next up - what? What's that you say? Non-traditional colors and non-holiday papers? Why yes. You are correct. Carta Bella's Summer Lovin'. After all, it IS summer in real life! I did some more paper-piecing on this Christmas tree. It's really addicting. I just can't help myself. And I used my go-to favorite May Arts burlap ribbon that goes on just about everything I create! 

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Happy Holidays! Check back on Friday, for Day 3 of Christmas in July. I'll have another Technique Tuesday card to share!
