All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge - Christmas in July

Happy Hump Day to you! I created today's card for the All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge which is "Christmas in July". I started my Christmas cards in July last year so this is a timely challenge for me.

I purchased Sweet November Neva late last year so I only managed to get her stamped once. I wanted the whole Snowflake Fairy collection but just didn't quite have the funds at the time to get them all.  After stamping the image onto Copics X-Press It blending cardstock, I cut the image out with a Spellbinders Nestie with some "out of the circle" action. I very lightly sponged around the edges with Antique Linen Distress ink. I colored with Copics, highighting some areas with Lime Green and Frosted Lace Stickles. The patterned paper is The Girl's Paperie, a favorite from last year.

Products: Sweet November stamp, The Cat's Pajamas Cutups, The Girl's Paperie dp, PTI cs, button and ribbon twill, Ranger Stickles, Kaisercraft pearls, Fiskars border punch, Spellbinders Nestabilities, Copic Markers

Copics: Skin-E000, E00, E11, R20; Hair-E50, E51, E53, E55; Clothing-R24, R27, R29; Snowflake-G0000, G20, YG01, YG23
