Christmas in July 1

I'm back with a few cards for the current Christmas in July event at the Bugaboo blog.

My first card is for the Bingo challenge of Day 4, which came together rather quickly because I used elements I had already created earlier, except for the Bugaboo stocking image, which was cut out from a larger imager and then coloured with Copics and fussy cut. To add a little dimension, I added glossy accents to the red parts. The background (from an older SOA collection) was stamped in various colours of Memento (Luxe) ink, which have a lovely sheen to them. I added Wink of Stella to the red part so that it would get a similar sheen. The die cut doily (from the Natually Inspired SOA collection) was heat embossed using Judi Kinns glitter embossing powder. The die cut sentiment is from Paper Smooches.

I went with the first row down: sparkly, sentiment, embossing

I'm also linking up my card at:

  1. That sweet stocking is perfect against the white doily. A classic Christmas card.

  2. A heat-embossed doily! You'll never be out of them with a stamp... I very much like all the different reds on you card, it's great! (I hope the comment doesn't show up more than once...)

  3. That background is really fabulous - love the ombré effect with the different colours. Xx

  4. Cute card!
