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. 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.
