I've started my Christmas in July series by using stamps from Purple Onion Designs, Simon Says Stamp, and Gina K. Designs. I hope you enjoy my card making process!
I began this card project by stamping the Gina K. Design's "Delicate Snowflake" background stamp using Altenew's Turquoise Crisp Dye Ink. I utilized one of Tim Holtz's Collage Brushes to apply a coat of Distress Collage Medium Matte to the snowflake stamped card panel. Acting quickly... I generously coated the Distress Clear Rock Candy glitter over the entire panel and let it sit about 20 seconds before tapping off the excess to ensure I had a good layer of Rock Candy stuck to the Collage Medium. Once the excess had been tapped off, I set this panel aside to dry.
Next, I selected the "Jolly" stamp from Purple Onion Designs and used Lawn Fawn's Jet Black ink to stamp the snowman image onto a piece of alcohol marker friendly card stock. I used my Copic Sketch markers to color the image, the Brother Scan 'N Cut to cut out the image, and applied Simon Says Stamp 3D Foam Squares to the back.
I cut the snowflake/Rock Candy card front panel to be slightly smaller than an A2 card panel and adhered it to the front of a top folding, A2 card panel. For the sentiment, I used the Simon Says Stamp "Christmas Blessings" stamp and die set to stamp the 'Tis the Season image onto white card stock using jet black ink and cut it out using the matching die from the set. LOVE THIS STAMP/DIE SET!!! I placed 3D foam squares to the back side of the sentiment and positioned it and the snowman image on the card front in the location I thought looked good. This finished off the last task of a super easy to make Christmas card.
I hope you are enjoying getting a head start on your holiday cards during the oppressive heat of the 2023 Christmas in July.
Thank you so much for stopping by to see me - I appreciate you doing so!
Until next time…
