We just got back from a vacation in Orlando where the heat index was 112. I guess thinking about temperatures about 12 or 13 instead of 112 is appropriate after almost having heat stroke earlier in the week. :-o
Outlines Rubber Stamps is sponsoring a Christmas in July challenge so this is the card I made for the challenge.
The image was embossed 0n three different colored pieces of cardstock with black detail embossing powder. I stamped/embossed an extra cream colored piece so I could use it for layering. Using one of the cream colored pieces of cardstock for the base, I fancy cut (or craft knife) to layer different pieces till I got the effect I was pleased with. A hole punch was used to add more dimension to some of the layers.
Since it isn't Christmas with out sparkling lights, I added Stickles and rhinestones to give the card some shimmer. There was lots of paper piecing to make this card but there are enough pieces of colored cardstock left to make two more cards if I stamp/emboss two more cream colored pieces of cardstock to use for the bases.
I bought 2 Christmas gifts! I haven't started my Christmas cards yet :-(
Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.
