Christmas in July 2020 – Day 16

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 16 of Christmas in July! Today I’m playing along with the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown! This week, they have a colour challenge – all white. Only black is allowed for the sentiment.

You would not believe the issues I had with this card! I knew I wanted to use the Holiday Mistletoe die from Poppystamps, but the background was a NIGHTMARE! I tried a dry embossed background, a background stamped with white snowflakes, and the Simon Says Stamp Sketched frame die. Nothing felt ‘right’ to me. Then I decided to dry emboss the frame. And the issues continues – the Gemini cut through some of the die, then crinkled the card and then my purple tape took a layer of cardstock when I peeled it off. Argh! Finally I got an impression that was OK. but wonky, so I cut down the panel and adhered that to the card base. After adding the beautiful die cut and a Mama Elephant sentiment, I applied some clear Nuvo drops. I was so worried that I was going to smudge them after all my problems. But I didn’t! Phew!

Thanks for stopping by!
