Welcome to InKing Royalty’s July Blog Hop! Can you believe we are half-way to Christmas? It might seem a bit early to start looking at wintry scenes and holiday goodies, but there are so many great products in Stampin’ Up!’s 2016 Annual Catalog that we want to share before the Holiday Catalog is revealed next month. Today’s Blog Hop is filled with inspiring projects that feature each artist’s take on Christmas in July. After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.
Christmas in July is a novel idea. A way to break up the heat and humidity by thinking of snow and wreaths. This card uses the Wondrous Wreath stamp set and coordinating Wonderful Wreath framelet dies. The new In-Color Emerald Envy screamed Christmas to me. I like the true red and bright green combination for my Christmas decorations.
The red and silver foil added some sparkle and shine. The word Joy, which is part of the framelets, sat perfectly on top of the wreath.
I carried the foil to the inside of the card as well. Then added some depth by simply tearing the edge of the Very Vanilla and Emerald Envy. A thin strip of the red foil was adhered to the inside right, so it would show when the card closed.
I enjoy the appearance of three layers but the weight of two. Sometime too many layers make a card top heavy. Enjoy the beautiful cards and dream of sugar plums
