Merry Christmas in July!

Christmas in July...I love it! If you are a paper crafter (or want to be), the holidays are literally just around the corner. This is a slight case of one of my own cards I posted a couple of years ago here. All products Stampin' Up!

I watercolored a panel using Cucumber Crush and Bermuda Bay inks. After it was dry, I embossed the snowflakes from the Flurry of Wishes stamp set with White Stampin' Emboss powder. I die cut the word using a die from the Wonderful Wreath Framelits set from the watercolor panel.  I layered that piece on to 4 of the same word cut from Emerald Envy cardstock. (It gives a ton of dimension to do it this way) It is a bit hard to see, but I applied the clear Wink of Stella to the top word and the edges of the Emerald Envy cardstock that is showing. I used the corner rounder from the Envelope Punch Board. It gives perfect results just about every time and even cuts through 2 layers of card stock. 

Supply list:

Do you have a Stampin' Up! demonstrator? If not, I would love to be your source for these amazing products and hopefully give you a good dose of inspiration from time to time. This is not just a hobby for me, it is a passion! 

Please use the hostess code shown in the top right corner when ordering online, unless your order will total $150 before shipping & tax. At that point, you become your own hostess and get all the rewards! 

As always, let me know if you have any questions about the project or the products used. Thanks for visiting my blog.

Artfully Yours,


  1. Love the way you die cut the "Joy" out of the base and added dimension with the Emerald Envy! Great card!

  2. Beautiful - what adhesive do you use to adhere your layers????

    1. Thank you! I used Tear & Tape adhesive for paper layers and Multipurpose Liquid glue to adhere the layers of the words.

  3. Wow, that is so cool! I love how you did the word "Joy".
