Christmas in July 2021 – Day 1

Hello everyone!

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!
