More Christmas in July

Hi again,

I’m back with another CAS Christmas card.  This one uses the Lovely as a Tree stamp set, embossing powder, and glitter!  Who doesn’t like some glitter on their cards?   I took my inspiration for this card from Glenda Mollet (who CASEd it from someone she couldn’t remember).  http://glendamollet.blogspot.com/2013/11/christmas-stamp-stack-card-1.html

This card works in so many different colors (I used Cherry Cobbler and Always Artichoke.  I also used Midnight Muse but I sent that card out last Christmas!)  So here are the cards!
