Is it Monday all ready?! I was having such a nice weekend! The weather was hot but gorgeous here, like summer should be! Lots of convertible time and crafty time, the best kind of weekend! I hope that all of you also had a good weekend. I have been feverishly working on swaps and projects for while I’m away at Convention. I have a ton more to do but I love it!
Today’s post is for this week’s Paper Players. This time around we have a Christmas in July challenge from the fabulous Ann…
The perfect challenge for me to use some of my new goodies from the 2013 Holiday Catalog! The base of my card today is Whisper White Card Stock. For the background I used a piece of paper from the Winter Frost Designer Series Paper Stack*. While I was rummaging through my craft supplies the other day I came across the Photo Corner Punch that I had purchased from the Clearance Rack last year. You could easily recreate the look with the new Squares Collection Framelits. I used the punch with some of the new Island Indigo Textured Card Stock for the corners on my card. The stamp in the Middle is the Wonderful Wreath Stamp* and is inked in Bermuda Bay. I used the Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Marker to make the little red berries and cut it out with the Circles Collection Framelits Dies. It’s backed with a piece of Cherry Cobbler that I flagged on both ends. The greeting is another piece of the Island Indigo Textured Card Stock that I cut out with the new Expressions Thinlits Dies*. I love the blues and red together for Christmas, as you will remember from last year I’m not a huge fan of red and green! And the Thinlits dies will fast become a favorite of mine for sure! Thanks so much for stopping by to see my Paper Players card for this week’s Christmas in July challenge from Ann. Check out the blog to see the other designers work too! I hope you have a good Monday! 🙂
