Christmas in July (finally)

I normally start my Christmas cards in July, but I was so distracted with my cloisonne Cat cards that I got a late start.  Here is my first one of July:

I photographed this with my new Samsung S3 - much better photos than my tablet, I think.

Anyway, this is an easel card, which I really enjoy making, but I hate to send them, because most people have no clue how to set them up.  I think I can only send them to other stampers.  I really worked my dies and punches - I used the Out of the Die technique with the circle, and the oval is a die, and the stars are punched.  The tiny star sequins cover my overstamping.

The stamps are from the santa's flight set from a•muse studio.

I love this Santa and reindeer image- and love the blue! I am with you on the easel cards- rarely do I send them to non-papercrafters.
