Christmas in July

This month at my stamp club, we made a Christmas card and a hanging plant tag (for a stake).  Quite the oxymoron, yes?  But they loved the projects anyway, and we had a good time.
I found a website that showed how to make these stair step card, and we copied her sample almost exactly.
Thank you Amy Celona!  

Here's the card we did

(the beer in the background is really not supposed to be part of the project, but makes for an interesting photo none the less)

Here is the plant stake we made.  We used the scallop circle die for the main shape.  We added some butterflies from the large butterfly die, Beautiful Butterflies die.  We attached the butterfly with a brad--they had a choice from an In Color asstd. pack, a glitter brad or a retired rhinestone brad.  
We embossed the circle and the butterflies with several embossing folders, whichever one they liked.  The sample below uses the Elegant Lines and Spiderweb (for the butterfly) folders.
We colored the embossed image with Sharpies.

Hope you like them!
