It’s that time of year again! LucieG’s Christmas in July! Woohoo! For the past couple of years, I’ve dedicated July to Christmas cardmaking and reaped the benefits in November/December when life always seems to get super busy! I LOVE having a good supply of cards to send to all my friends rather than stress about making them before the posting deadline. Plus I get a chance to use the festive supplies I bought in the after-Christmas sales!
So, for Christmas in July Day 1, I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown challenge which has a beautiful combo (purple, blue and green). It made me smile when I saw the combo because I remember using a very similar combo during LucieG’s Christmas in July 2020! Anyway, to start with, I masked a rectangle and blended some blue distress ink on my card base. Next, I pulled out Penny Black’s ornament branch (51-481) which I coloured with distress inks. Finally I added a sentiment from the Penny Black Beauty of The Season stamp set (30-254) and a few sequins to complete my card.
Thanks for stopping by!
What a fabulous idea to do Christmas in July! These colors look great on your ornament design! Thanks for playing along with us at CTD!
