More Christmas In July

SparkleN Sprinkle recently had a Christmas in July Blog Hop.  Since I still had lots of ideas in my head I decided to work on a few more cards.  I found this sentiment, Christmas Makes Me, that I really liked and knew I wanted to use it.

I heat embossed the sentiment with Concord Star Embossing Powder and cut it out with Spellbnders’ Circle Nesties, along with a slightly larger border.  I made this look like an ornament by adding Plantinum EP to a piece of 1/4" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape and added it to the top of the circles.  Great way to create a metal look that is self adhesive for borders or small areas.

I layered the “ornament”, along with Mr. and Mrs. P, onto a background created with Snow Flurries and more Concord Star EP.  For a little more glitz, I added Twinkling Clouds Sparkle N Soft to Mrs. P’s hat and used a glue pen to add some Starfire Glitter and Christmas Fire EP to the Holly and Holly Berries.  This was fun and simple to make.

Here’s to cooler weather.
