Christmas in July - Handmade card.

Hello everyone
Today I have another handmade card for you which is inspired by the thought of " Christmas in July". So I made some Christmas cards which are very simple and easy to do and I have so much fun making them. This is the first of the many cards which are lined up.
I am putting this card up at the following challenges:-
  1. Addicted to Stamps and more Challenge #248 - Holiday
  2. Cute Card Thursday Challenge -#284 - Anything Goes
  3. HLS June 2017 Christmas Challenge - Optional Twist - Tree
  4. DLART June Linky Challenge - Anything goes
  5. Inky Chicks Challenge #85 - Christmas 
  6. Word Art Wednesday  Challenge #288-289 - Anything Goes
  7. Simon says stamp Wednesday challenge - Anything goes
So to make this card, I started with a standard A2 size grey card base. I then heat embossed some pine leaves with Ranger White Super fine heat embossing power on a grey cardstock cut to 41/4" by 51/2". I made my own little christmas tree which was peeking from one of the edges of the card. Then I also heat embossed the sentiment using the same. Thats all I had to do.....Then was the fun part...to decorate the tree with ornaments and I used Mudra sequins to decorate the tree and sprinkled a few here and there.
Then I trimmed my card by 1/8" on all sides and layered it on some gold glitter cardstock. Before the layering, I added red organza ribbon bow tied around the bottom of the card with sequins in the center.
I mounted this to my card base and my card was ready. Simple and quick and so festive....feeling like Christmas in July.
