Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop - Christmas in July


Hello and welcome to For The Love of Stamping! Today you are joining me on the Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop - Christmas in July!.  I KNOW!!  Christmas cards already? Well it can never be to early to start!
Where do I begin? Let's start with the base - a new 2021 - 2023 In Color - Evening Evergreen. A perfect shade for Christmas! Layered on top of the base is the Pearlescent paper. This paper just adds a gorgeous shimmer to the card.

I used the Encircled In Beauty dies to create the wreath base in Evening Evergreen and added some clear Wink of Stella on the wreath. I just love how it not only adds shimmer but also darkens the cardstock.  On top of the wreath are some gold holly that I die cut using the Poinsettia dies.

The poinsettia was die cut in So Saffron and then sponged with white craft ink and "glitterized" with a Wink of Stella! Each layer was popped up on dimensionals. 

I added a bow using 2 different ribbons (Open Weave Evening Evergreen)  and finished the card off with the sentiment embossed in gold (and of course more Wink of Stella - you can never have too much sparkle!).

I love how this turned out!  All the products are from the current catalog. Which reminds me.... the July to Dec catalog will be out soon!
