A little while ago I posted a tutorial showing you how to make easel cards.   While I was doing the blog post I made a card to show you the steps, but then had to figure out how to decorate it.  It was left a little half finished, like this:


All dressed up and nowhere to go!

Today I wanted to show you how the card ended up.   And randomly, it ended up a table decoration for a Christmas in July celebration!  (yes, in August …)

Every year we have a Christmas in July celebration with some close friends.   This year July was just too busy for me for work so we arranged to have Christmas in July in August.  We live near the beach so we decided vaguely on a ‘Christmas in July at the beach’ theme.  That does kind of defeat the purpose of Christmas in July, but whatever!

So here you go … my “Christmas in July in August at the Beach” table decoration easel card!


The blank card was sitting on my desk for several days – and then inspiration struck.  It must have been all that red!   It’s a little bit silly/random, but that is what Christmas in July (in August!) is all about 🙂


PS Did you notice the cute little Santa hat?  Stay tuned and I’ll show you how to make it.  It took me a while to figure out how to make it so I should share the love!
