Happy Eyelet Outlet Thursday Everyone!!!
So some of the Ladies on our Design Team have been creating a “Christmas In July” theme on Saturdays and because of my new job and crazy hours I haven’t had the time to make anything extra but I couldn’t resist Christmas any longer so I’m back today with a little Christmas in July of my own.
For my first card I wanted a bright colored candy style. Because of this I was finally able to use one of my favorite sheets of design paper that I have had for quite some time. I found it at a garage sale and was excited to use it. I folded the dp back and pinned it with one of my red peppermint brads. After placing the brads in the 4 corners I wanted to add a border of strips to draw everything together and what better way to add a quick border than Washi Tape!
For my second card I decided on a grunge look for my stocking so I distressed the heck out of the paper, inked the edges heavily and then decided to add a little sparkle so I hand sewed with some glitter thread my Mom bought for me and added it to the tag. The pack she gave me had multiple colors, so I added the red to match the sock and the gold thread to match the flecks of gold in the enamel dots.
For my third and final card I created something bright and cheery, something that a kid might appreciate. The borders, sentiment and tag are all stickers from a very old set that I believe came from Stampin Up! I used a pop-up square for the tag to give it extra dimension and used the glitter thread again.
I used my SU! markers to color the matte enamel dots on the circles and then added some extra color to the Green Pearl Bling Strips on the present.
Well I hope you enjoyed todays project and that it’s encouraged you to create something of your own.
