Christmas in July {Purple Onion Designs}

Good morning. The Purple Onion Designs Anniversary sale is in full swing. Michele is celebrating with a 25% off sale which will be reflected once you add your items to the shopping cart. Now is a great time to get some really fantastic stamps at a great discount.

Today's card is a Christmas in July one.

I colored all the images months ago when it was actually cold. I started out creating the background cutting a stitched rectangle from Neenah cardstock. After stamping the Snowflake Grove Decorated Tree image, I colored with Copic markers, using Ranger Liquid Pearls for the tree decorations. The sentiment from the Helen's Hand Holiday Sentiment set was stamped directly onto the background. I stamped Forrest (hedgehog) and Oakley onto Copic X-Press It cardstock, colored with Copic Markers and then fussy cut out. Both images were attached to the background piece with dimensional tape.
