Hello friends and happy Friday! Congratulations for making it through the work week! I'm ready for the weekend! Today is the second (and last!) day I'll be sharing Christmas in July cards, but on Sunday I am hosting my annual Christmas in July cardmaking extravaganza, so I've still got a little merry left in me! This card uses the same stamp set called "North Pole Littles" from Hello Bluebird that I used in yesterday's purple snow theme card, but it has an entirely different feel to it. Today's card is much more traditional in red and green colors. Where do you stand on tradition? Red and green, tinsel and popcorn? Or, do you like to venture outside of the box? Oh gosh, remember the year of the upside-down Christmas trees?! That's a little too much for me. Perhaps I'm more of an outside-of-the-box-but-still-touching-the-box kinda gal!
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. The first layer is a piece of Lawn Fawn Really Rainbow Christmas paper in the green Christmas tree print. Next using a circular die (sorry, company unknown) I die cut the linking circles frame out of Real Red cardstock. I die cut the word "ho" three times from white cardstock. I stamped all of the images in Memento Tuxedo black ink on white cardstock and die cut them. I colored the images with Spectrum Noir Alcohol ink markers. I used a Uniball white gel pen to add highlights to the colored images. Using a Sakura Quickie Glue Pen I put small amounts of glue on the whites of some of the images (hats, beards, presents) and sprinkled Lawn Fawn Prisma Glitter on them for added sparkle. Lastly I added the images to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added height.
Here is the North Pole Littles stamp set from Hello Bluebird that I used to make this card:
