Timeless Tuesday #230 - Christmas in July with a Catch

The catch?  The card had to be semi-flat - no big bows or anything else that would make it a lumpy, bumpy envelope.  I used a banner that when put into the envelope will flatten out until you take it out.  The three pretty rhinestones shouldn't present a problem but I always add a light layer just so they don't poke through the envelope.

To get all the details about the Christmas in July with a Catch Challenge, click HERE or on the image below.

Here is the card I created for this challenge.  One of my favorite dies is the Peekaboo Frames from Stampin' Up!  Oh, and I absolutely love this silver glitter paper from American Crafts!  It's sparkly and shimmery and it does not flake off and get glitter every where.  Now that is something to happy dance about!

You can see the image once you open the little door on the frame.  I used the horseshoe from Flourishes Cowboy Christmas stamp set.

Stamp Set:  Cowboy Christmas; Inks:  Tuxedo Black (Memento), Copic Markers R22, R24, R27; E33, E37, E39; YG11, YG13, YG17; Card Stock:  Gumball Green (Stampin' Up!), Classic White (Flourishes), Silver Glitter Paper ( American Crafts); Accessories & Tools:  Peekaboo Frames (Stampin' Up!), Clear Rhinestones colored with Copic Marker R27

Until next time . . . happy creating!
