Christmas in July Week 1

I love making Christmas cards so when I saw the Stampin' Up! Color Challenge for July on Facebook I immediately decided I needed to make a Christmas card.  The colors for the challenge include Real Red, Shaded Spruce, and Whisper White.

I had also recently seen a tip about making a three layer flower with the Floral Essence stamp set and punch. I stamped two flowers in Real Red and two flowers in Shaded Spruce on Whisper White card stock. I followed this up with using the Wink of Stella pen to spread the color and add some sparkle. The green flower was cut apart and layered behind the red flower so the petals are farther out.

I sprayed a shimmer mist on the Shaded Spruce card stock and ran it through the Swirls and Curls embossing folder. Gold glimmer paper using the Sprig Punch added an extra bling to the card.

Check back next Friday to see another card designed for Christmas in July. A list of supplies used in the card can be found below.
