Christmas in July Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome to the Stamp It Group’s Christmas in July Blog Hop!! Even though Christmas is a few months away, it’s never too early to get some great inspiration and ideas from all the talented ladies in this blog hop! For the card I created today, I wanted to go outside the typical Cherry Cobbler/Garden Green and Real Red/Old Olive color combinations and used Poppy Parade and Call Me Clover! I also used the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set and the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits Dies, which were carried over from the 2017 Holiday Catalog to the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog. This was one of my favorite Christmas sets from the Holiday Catalog, so I was excited to see it carried over!!

The card base is Call Me Clover cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”. I used the edge die from the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits Dies along the bottom of the card front:

The base layer is from the Brights 6” x 6” DSP in Poppy Parade and white stripes, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

The next layer is Call Me Clover cardstock, cut at 3 ¼” x 4 ½”, use the same edge die from the card front, and used the largest oval die from the Layering Ovals Dies:

The last layer is another piece of DSP in Poppy Parade and white dots, cut at 3” x 4 ¼”:

The front sentiment is from the Snowflake Sentiments stamped in Poppy Parade on a piece of Whisper White cardstock and then cut out with the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits. This is then adhered to the Call Me Clover oval:

The snowflakes from the dies are cut out with Sparkle Glimmer Paper and a piece of Poppy Parade cardstock cut at ½” x 5 ½”, which is adhered to the inside of the card:

The DSP is adhered to the Call Me Clover cardstock, tie a bow around this with a piece of 1/8” Sheer Ribbon in Whisper White, and then adhere the sentiment with dimensionals:

The DSP base layer is adhered to the card base, and then use dimensionals to adhere the sentiment piece:

I used three of the sparkle snowflakes around the sentiment that are adhered with glue dots:

The inside sentiment is on a piece of 4” x 5 ¼” Whisper White cardstock, stamped in Call Me Clover ink. I used the three remaining sparkle snowflakes around the sentiment with glue dots and then stamped the three-snowflake stamp along the bottom in Poppy Parade ink:

I am an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator located in Norfolk, Virginia and was first introduced to Stampin' Up! in 2004 when I attended my very first card class with my Mother-in-Law and I was immediately hooked! I first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and figured I could just do it for a hobby, but now I am going to branch out for all to world to see. So grab your favorite beverage, sit in your favorite chair, and join me as I share my cards and crafts with you! Enjoy!
