2022 Christmas in July | Card 3

Pawsome Stamps | Christmas Cupcakes

Hi everyone! 

Today I’m sharing my third and final Christmas in July card for the month.   I hope this series has inspired you to start thinking of your own Christmas cards and maybe get a head start on the season!

For this card, I decided to use a Christmas-themed set called “Christmas Cupcakes” from Pawsome Stamps.  I’m a sucker for Christmas greenery, so the holly and berries on this cupcake spoke to me. 

I started out by making the background for this card.  I took several different sentiments from the Pawsome Stamps “Sentiment Basics – Christmas” set and randomly fit them over a cardstock panel.  I stamped and embossed them in white.  It is hard to see in the photos since it is white-on-white, but it really adds a lot of texture and interest to an otherwise plain background.   Hopefully this photo gives you an idea of what it looks like:

I used two circle dies to cut out a window in the panel and popped it up on my card base with foam adhesive.

I stamped my cupcake and platter with Copic-friendly ink and colored them with my Copic Markers.  I used a white gel pen on the berries for a highlight.

I colored my sentiment with an obre effect and then assembled all the pieces on my card front.  

And, lastly, I added a few sequins for some added sparkle.

I absolutely love how this card turned out and I hope you do too!

Thank you for stopping by and for sticking with me through Christmas in July!  

Have a wonderfully creative day, everyone!

I love to make cards and enjoy trying out new techniques and products. My artistic “style” differs almost daily – it just depends on what I’m making, the look I’m going for, who the intended recipient is, and, well, sometimes just the mood I’m in.
