Today we got to 36 degrees Celsius, yesterday it was 40. We’re into our 2nd week of high 30’s and it’s not even summer – what’s a gal to do? Craft of course!
I started writing my Christmas cards yesterday, need to get my US/Canadian cards into the mail if they’re to make it on time and I’m still a few cards short.
So off to some challenges I go for inspiration.
Up first is a card I’m entering over at Sunday Stamps which is a sketch challenge and SU! Only Challenges which is to create a card celebrating a winter holiday. I’m hoping thinking about winter will make me feel cooler on this hot day.
My card uses all Stampin Up products. The sleigh is from a set called Cozy Christmas and the sentiment is from Greetings from Santa. I gold embossed the sleigh and white embossed the sentiment. I then sponged the whisper white panel with lemon lime twist ink and splattered it with some water to simulate snow. the close up shows the sentiment a little bit better.
Next up is a card for my daughter’s teacher. Miss K wanted me to make a shaker card, so I die cut the Stampin Up detailed Santa thinlit out of silver glitter paper, popped it up and filled it with green and blue sequins.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
