It’s July, time to start thinking about Christmas! I usually don’t like to make a bunch of the same card, so I try to make Christmas cards all through the year. I also like to make Christmas cards with nontraditional colors to spice things up a bit! I made this card for today’s Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper FS284 Cynthia aka StampinAK. I chose her pretty Pink Winter card to case, I love her snowman image and the pink matting. For my card, I used Raspberry Ripple for my card base and mats. I stamped the PSX Santa Hat in Basic Black and added Dazzling Diamonds to the cuff and pom pom. I used Raspberry Ripple and a water brush to color the hat and a Raspberry Ripple marker to add the accents. I sprayed the image panel with homemade glimmer mist made with Stampin’ Up! Frost White Paint and matted it with a Nestabilities die cut. I embossed the Whisper White background panel with an embossing folder, sprayed with the glimmer mist and mounted it on the Raspberry Ripple card base. I stamped the sentiment first in VersaMark, then in Raspberry Ripple, clear embossed and mounted on the card. This card went together quickly and I love the sparkle from the Dazzling diamonds and glimmer spray!
