Christmas in July 2021 – Day 30

Happy Friyay everyone!

Welcome to Day 30 of Christmas in July 2021! Today I’m playing along with the challenge at Inspirational where the theme is spots/dots.

I haven’t used a kraft-based colour combo during this Christmas in July, even though I love it! So, I decided to go with a neutral palette today. I chose the fabulous Merry Bauble Tree by Poppystamps which I cut from kraft, black and white glitter paper. As I wanted the tree to really stand out against a kraft background, I darkened the cardstock used for the tree with a little Frayed Burlap distress ink.

As I was assembling the tree, I wanted to add a little something to the round tree truck. I liked how that spare dot looked so I added a few more on the larger baubles! Gives it a retro feel, don’t you think?

I added it to a base that I embossed using the Confetti Burst embossing folder by Crafter’s Companion/Sara Davies.

Thanks for stopping by!
