Tidings of Christmas: In July!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I’ve been bitten by the bug … blame it on Lifetime movies and their Christmas in July marathon!! lol Today I’m sharing a pretty card that I created using the Tidings of Christmas Suite… and will showcase non-traditional colors.

We begin with a Early Espresso card base … and back! I’m loving the layers on this card. I then chose the Sahara Sand pattern from the Tidings of Christmas 6″ x 6″ designer paper, it’s so cute with starry snowflakes.

The focal point of my card is the beautiful stars created with the coordinating dies from the Tidings & Trimmings bundle (part of the entire suite). The solid star is Early Espresso and the detailed star is cut from the “Gold” from the Gold & Rose Gold Metallic Specialty Paper.

Oh, the Metallic paper is so pretty so I used it to enhance the designer paper as well, and to jazz up my greeting …

I stamped my greeting with the VersaMark ink and then heat embossed it with our Gold Embossing powder. The raised verse in Gold looks great with the raised detailed star!

The stars were popped up to add dimension to the textured star … then I gave the banner a little wave to create some “action” to the card.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I spent mine trying out new techniques, so I hope you join me this Tuesday for my Facebook LIVE and a technique that is something special.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.

Have a wonderful day ~
