Last Christmas in July - Carols of Christmas

I first made this very simple card first while I was just playing around with the stamp set and die cuts.  It's plain.  Pretty, but very simple and very much NOT my style.
 Now... I added details.  I embossed the background with the Holly folder - but I could have just as well used the Softly Falling folder to make it look like there was snow.  I cut the sentiment with the Stitched Shapes square die, and used white embossing powder on the trees with a touch of Wink of Stella.

 Here's a bonus card for today!  I hadn't used the poinsettia cut outs, and wanted to play with them as well. 
 I hope you've enjoyed this year's Christmas in July offerings!  I'll post more Christmas Cards as December draws near and the new items from the catalog debuting on September 1st.
