Yeah, I know it's early, but today's challenge on OWH has a "Christmas in July" theme. I used a technique I found on Splitcoaststampers to dry emboss, then to wet emboss. Not sure if I love the embossing folders I chose to do this card, but I have started another one using a snowflake folder, so you might see that one tomorrow.

Supply List: embossing folders - Sizzix, Cuttlebug; dies - Nestabilities; stamp - PTI Wreath for All Seasons

Now that the Cannas are starting to bloom the hummingbirds are visiting the backyard. It wasn't easy, but I was able to get a photo last weekend.


  1. Lucky you on the bird photo. Love the embossing. TFS!!!

  2. Pretty Christmas card. I was sorting some ribbon today, and came across some pretty Christmas ribbon that ALMOST made me want to create a Christmas card...heehee.

    Lucky you - hummingbirds! I haven't seen a hummingbird in I don't know how many years.

  3. Your card is so pretty. I love the double, dry, wet embossing.
    Nice photo of the hummingbirds. Hubby got a real good photo of one a couple of years ago :)

  4. This is really nice! I can't wait to see your next one too :) Thanks for playing in our challenge at Operation Write Home!

  5. I love the Christmas card, and think the embossing folders are just perfect! Don't change a thing!
