Christmas in July

My card today is for Christmas in July! Of course, I have been making at least 10 Christmas cards each month since January, so I allready have a whole box full of x-mas cards ready to go! Gotta plan ahead! No, I just really love making x-mas cards all year long! Keeps me in the mood!
My image today is a Riley Moose image from Hannah Stamps. He was stamped for me by one of my online stamping friends. Isn't he the cutest carrying his x-mas tree home?

The designer paper that I used is called Ski Slope and was sold by Stampin' Up! last year. I also used my Cuttlebug and the snowflake embossing folder for the white layer.
This second picture shows how I decorated the inside of the card. I kept it fairly simple, but just wanted to show you how I've been 'dressing up' the insides of my cards instead of just leaving them plain.
Hope this inspires some of you to start with your holiday cards soon!
