Sugar Plum Christmas block box card

 Hello crafty friends, it's been along time since I've posted here.   This morning I cleaned up my craft island and got busy on a Christmas in July card.   I had so much fun decorating this awesome card style.   The fun Card file is from  I used hot off the press sugar plum foil artful card kit  for the beautiful papers and a lot of the decorations and die cuts.  
I used My SNC2 to cut a back shadow layer in purple for the tree and label die cuts.  The merry Christmas stamp on the front is from  HOTP small stamps poinsettia,  I stamped with stazOn black ink because the tag had a slick surface.
On the tops I added the cute coordinating buttons from the kit that I tied a purple ribbon thru each before attaching each one to a stitched circle die cut I cut again from the metal tape.  The die is from Simon Says Stamp, Bundle of Stitched Shapes die set. 

The adorable stockings are made with a HOTP die set called 9 tiny Christmas things + shadows, but I didn't use the shadow on these.   I added some  metallic silver flat back pearls at the top of each stocking.  The gorgeous Poinsettia is from the same die cut set, this time I did cut the shadow in purple and I cut the top layer out of metal tape I got from hubbies garage.   On these I added a larger  metallic purple flat back pearl to the center of each.  The "sugarplum" sentiment on the back of the card is a premade printed tag from the kit.  I added a purple layer with my SNC2.  Behind that I cut 2 X-Stitched Banners from my undbranded Die set and adhered them together with the flag tails sticking out on either end.  
On the bottom I placed my adorable sentiment stamp "May your holidays sparkle and shine " from Cardz TV "Merry Everything" Stamp set.,  stamped in memento tuxedo black Ink.   I thought this was the perfect sentiment to go with all of the pretty  and shiny silver foil accents all over this card.  I wish you could see all of the gorgeous silver foil accents better.  I love that this card folds flat for mailing.
