Christmas in July – Day 18

Hi Everyone

Day 18 of Christmas in July and my pile of Christmas cards is growing nicely!

Today I used a Simply Graphic tree die and the colour palette from this week’s CAS Colours and Sketches Challenge .

I always have a problem with navy, especially photographing it. It either looks black or too light! So I decided to try something different today and used some blue cardstock which I darkened using Chipped Sapphire distress ink. I like how it turned out as it meant I could lift some ink to create a snowy effect around the trees.

I added a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp to finish off this card.

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. Oh a Christmas card – that is so cool with these colors! The die is wonderfully unique! Thanks for playing along with us at CC&S!


  2. Love the shape of those trees and great idea on how to use the colours for a christmas card. Thank you for joinng us for this week’s CC&S challenge.
