My mom was really surprised to hear I was working on Christmas cards. I told her that if you wait till November and do them all at once, it is a chore. If you do them a bit at a time (I do make them all year long) they are fun! The traditional "Christmas in July" gives me a bit of a push to get a bunch done.
This is a new stamp I recently acquired. I simply colored it with pencils and die cut it with a cross stitch die. Super cute, I do love the crafty looking stamps!
Believe it or not, the kraft card base with the patterned paper already on it has been sitting in my "half done" pile for nearly 2 years. I can't even remember what I originally was going to use it for!
These embellishments are actually soft to the touch so I think they will mail well. I stocked up on Christmas embellishments at Michaels after the holiday.
Supplies: Deep Red Stamps Snowman with Birds, Just for Fun Rubber Stamps Sentiments 3, Versafine Onyx Black ink, Prismacolor pencils, Gina Marie X Stitched circles, patterned paper was My Mind's Eye unknown pad, Recollections stickers
I would love to play along in the Happy Little Stampers Christmas in July challenge.
Thanks for stopping by!
