Christmas in July

Well, if you're Australian like me, where the coldest time of the year - is right now!!  You start thinking Christmas in July!  It's the closest we can get to a winter white Christmas.  So when we made a Christmas card back at our last team meeting, I saved it until now.  It's perfect for a wintery-Christmas!

This card uses the new 'Tag It' set.  A special stamp set where Stampin' Up! donates to Royal McDonald House (a more than worthy cause) on the sale of each set.

We have stamped Santa in paper tole style, where each layer was stamped and cut (stamped Santa 4 times in total), and each piece was adhered separately and popped up with a little dimensional.

Don't you just love  the Silver Glimmer paper in the background?  It's so stunning and I love how it hard leaves a trace of glitter anywhere, even on your workspace!  Very important if you're a 'messy' crafter like me!!


We've embossed the Marina Mist CS layer with the Northern Flurry embossing folder and sponged lightly over with Whisper White Craft Ink.  It's a gorgeous card and one I would like to try in other colour combinations.  Plum with silver??  Red??

Anyway, if you want to make this card you'll need the following supplies:

Stamps: Tag It
Inks: Marina Mist classic ink and Whisper White craft ink
Papers: Whisper White & Marina Mist CS, Silver Glimmer Paper
Other: Big Shot, Northern Flurry embossing folder, paper snips, dimensionals and sponges

This card was inspired by one we saw at Convention this year and we made as a team project.  It's one of those things I love about being part of a team!
