Happy Friday, peeps! Time for a new As You See It challenge, and we're challenging you to fill in the blank! Tell us what you like to create most for a Christmas in July project!
It could be a card, a 3D item, a hand-created gift item....anything! I love making Christmas cards, that's why I began stamping, and I especially love vintage images! I have had some gorgeous vintage papers that I've been hesitant to use because they are 6"x8", so I decided to make a tall card so that I could highlight a couple of them! So here we go:
This card is a whopping 8 1/4" x 4 1/8" and fits nicely into a business size envelope. I fussy-cut the Santa image and adhered him atop some vintage ephemera paper and adhered it to my Naturals White card.
I used a vintage sentiment, stamped in Cherry Cobbler on a piece of paper from the same pad, and created a mat from the print on the opposite side. I added some large holly leaves cut from some Be Dazzling specialty paper SU had from last year, along with some Cherry Cobbler glimmer paper berries and swirl:
Finally, on the inside, another vintage sentiment from Flonzcraft along with some stamped holly:
I hope you'll play along with our Christmas in July "Fill in the Blank" challenge and share your favorite Christmas creation over at As You See It! Can't wait to see it! And be sure to check out what the DT created as well...they're pretty awesome!
Yesterday was my birthday, and I want to thank everyone who sent cards and well wishes! I'll share some pictures of the cards in the coming days! John and I went to see Jersey Boys on Sunday as my birthday present, and on the way, we stopped at Burger King---not my favorite fast food place, but it was convenient. When I saw this big emblem as we walked in, I made John take my picture with it...now you know how old I am! As old as BK, obviously!
Thanks for popping in -- enjoy your day and be blessed!
