Christmas in July...

I love Christmas cards. And I really like to display them, especially the ones I get from my fellow stampers. But sometimes I just run out of room on my mantel. So I thought a pretty little container was in order.

This is a Christmas card caddie I made form the crate from Prima flower bottles. I like it because the cards can still peak out from between the slats of the crate.

I painted the crate green and covered the outside and bottom with Basic Grey Fruitcake collection papers (one of my favs - I love that it is double sided).

The decorated tree stamp is from justjohanna. I embossed it in green on the light green side of the Basic Grey paper, then colored the decorations with gel pens. I then mounted the tree on Basic Grey red and Bazzill green cardstock.

Thanks for looking!
