Merry Christmas (#christmasinjuly2017)

Summer is a wonderful time of the year but then again so is Christmas so I am doing a Christmas in July series. My goal is to make at least 20 cards this month but I am not going to stress over the goal. The point is to get a jump start on my Christmas cards while enjoying the process. See below on how to participate too.

I stamped the tree frame background from the Simon Says Christmas Graphic set using shimmery silver ink onto a stitched rectangle and then stamped inside the frame with the matching tree image using green parakeet ink. The sentiment was stamped with vermillon ink. The stamped piece was attached to a patterned paper background using a layer of foam tape. A scattering of sequins on the tree and silver metallic cording wrapped around the front and tied in a bow provided the finishing touches. This is one of those cards that I have to say looks prettier in real life as you can't see the pretty shimmer of the silver ink.
