CHRISTMAS IN JULY DAY THREE

this is my wall art project for the home decor part of the 
CHRISTMAS IN JULY EVENT

(i am aware of the photos not showing up yesterday at the hostess blog
thanks for letting me know. i contacted gisella and she will take care of it asap).

this project is not an original idea of mine but similar
to something i saw on the web and twisted it a bit to make it my own.
--here we go--

........Wishing You........
Happy Holidays
......................................................

size: 7" x 8.5"

pretty, huh?

i used my cricut for all the cuts since my paper trimmer tends to disappoint me--- :(

(remember to click on the pics for zooming in)

i chose a green pattern paper for the background and glued to the base of a thick chipboard.

the first yellow strip is 7" x 1.5".
the holly paper is 7" x 7.75"

the mat for the title was cut at 3.8" x 1.3" using ashlyn's alphabet for this shape. it is image#27 using the icon creative feature.

all the rectangles strips are 3" x .75".
the green strip to the right measures 2" x 7" with its mat.

 the holly border and red snowflake are from K&CO and so are the rest of the chipboard embellishments, except the star brad.

this cute pocket holding the candy canes is from tags, bags, boxes and more
(image# 48)
