S & S Midweek Challenge: Christmas in July

It's that time (already!) to begin making Christmas and Winter-themed cards for Operation Write Home. It is warm and a tad humid in East San Diego, and I've been wearing shorts for weeks. So I will wish for a rainy winter and begin creating cards for our deployed military.
My daughter-in-law brought a paper pad of Christmas patterned paper back from England for me so I can finally use it. These papers don't match each other--kinda strange for a 6x6 pad--but each of the patterns are very nice.
I got a great deal on the rubber stamp I used last spring. It is a "combo" wooden stamp with three stamps on one piece of wood. Another sentiment and the snowflake on the end. Pretty cool. My first card had only three flakes near the sentiment and looked too plain. As you can see, it doesn't look plain there anymore :)

Sentiment, Snowflakes: Stampourri
Ink: Night of Navy by Stampin' Up!
Ribbon: Michaels

That blue is such a pretty paper! I like the ribbon treatment you added, it really adds some class. :)

Those pretty snowflakes look great in both papers and stamped images! I feel cooler already :)

The ribbon adds such a nice shine, and the cool blue and white is perfect. Merry Christmas in July!
