Christmas in July at Crafter's Companion

Hello everyone!  This week Crafter's Companion is "officially" celebrating Christmas in July.  They have opened the doors to their Christmas store and you are seriously going to want to check it out.

I'm pretty happy to have gotten one of the new Die'sire holiday Embossalicious embossing folders - Christmas Patchwork and I used it on the card I am sharing with you today.  Isn't this folder gorgeous!? 

I trimmed the base card out of Luxury Centura Pearl Printable Snow White Cardstock.  And then layered some pattern paper and then the embossed paper. 
I pulled out some paper from my stash and trimmed out the Christmas ornaments to use as embellishments.  I recently purchased some Bakers Twine from Tim Holtz at my LSS so it was sitting right there on my scrap desk just calling my name. ha 
Have I mentioned lately that I love my Crafter's Companion Ultimate Tool?!  Seriously, I do!  You can do a million things with this beauty but one of the best things about my Ultimate Tool is the bow maker.  And guess what?  This card needs two bows!
So of course I grabbed it and got out the pegs from inside of it and set them in the smallest holes since I wanted very small bows. 

Then I just wrapped the twine around the pegs, slipped one end under the twine in the middle and tied a knot.  

Slide it off the pegs and you have a perfect bow!  And as you can see these would work perfectly on my card. (if I was using green! ha)

Crafter's Companion will soon be launching some FANTASTIC holiday sentiment stamps called ironically Sentimentals (hehehe).  I used one on this card by stamping it out with Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black onto a scrap of the patterned paper that had been using and trimmed it into a banner shape. 
I added it to the card with double sided adhesive squares and finished it off by making some Pearls  on the sentiment banner with my Viva Pearl Pen.  I also just had to add a bit of this luscious stuff to a couple of snowflakes on the embossed paper to make them stand out.  And since I'm addicted to sparkle I put a little Star Dust Stickles on the ornament embellies. 

I like how it turned out.  How about you?  Thanks for stopping and looking today.  For more Christmas inspiration check out the Crafter's Companion Facebook page or website.
