Merry Christmas in July!

Jul 25, 2016 | Cards

It’s Christmas in July time!  Stampin’ Up! has some great Christmas products in the Annual Catalog, and one of the Host Sets, Time of Year, has a Christmas stamp in it.  This is a great set that can be used all year long.  Since it is only 5 more months until Christmas, I used that stamp for the card below.

To make this card, I started with a Pear Pizzazz card base.  I took a piece of Whisper White cardstock (a quarter inch smaller than the base on all sides) and stamped “thinking of you” with Versamark ink.  Then poured our new Copper Embossing Powder over the image and shook off the excess before using the Heat Tool.  I love the look of the copper shine with the traditional Christmas colors.  I also stamped “at” using the Real Red ink pad and the berry image using the Real Red and Pear Pizzazz markers, before adhering the piece to the base.

On a scrap piece of white cardstock, I stamped the “Christmas” banner using the Real Red ink pad.  Then I ran that piece through the Big Shot machine with the matching Bunch of Banners die and the Magnetic Platform.  The banner piece was adhered using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
