"Christmas In July"

Hello friends, followers, visitors and viewers.  Welcome to Tuesday!
It's July and as a crafter you know that most stores, websites and other crafters are getting into the mood for Christmas.  A great opportunity to get started early so that you want be stressed and behind in your cards when December rolls around.  The cards that I've seen so far are very impressive and if you do your searching, I'm sure you will begin to get ideas and share those you have yourself for Christmas 2016.
I'm sharing two cards today.  One that is on the fun side and one that is a little formal:
This is the fun, cute one that was strictly made with a young child in mind.  The penguin actually slides from side to side and will flip around.  This makes a fun card for a little child.  The material used:  cardstock> Neenah white; Recollection red and red foil.
die > Hero Arts frame cut; Marianne creatables; and Precious Marieke Christmas baubles
Embellishment > eksuccess sticko penguins and Martha Stewart faux pearls
Entry > SOC (first and third challenge)


I'm considering this card on the formal side...due to the gold foil that I used and the swirly die.
Materials
cardstock: Neenah white;  Craft Smith metallic foil
die: Spellbinders Cascading Grace and Spellbinders  poinsettia; Sizzix Holiday Greens (Tim Holtz Alterations)
Embellishment:  gold alphabets on clear circle (I've had them so long that I'm not sure what company)

Thanks for viewing  today.

Sending you a hug and LOVE,
Lois
