Oh my gosh, I cannot believe I am making a Christmas Card in July!!!! What has this world come to? I hope you understand how wrong this feels--today was 90 degrees and about 90% humidity so it was hot and wet! You know when they talk about a "dry heat" in places like Vegas...they are referring to the fact that if you were in Iowa on a 90/90 day you would not want to be outside because it feels like a steam bath! It may sound fun, but really it is no good--especially for stamping Christmas Cards! ;) Ok, my weather-related-Christmas-in-July-stamping is wrong-RANT is over! :)
Despite my rant, I really like my card and the pictures do NOT do it justice! This card sparkles! Just watch the video an you'll see!! It is so pretty!
Gather your supplies:
- 1/2 sheet of Sahara Sand, plus a 3 7/8 x 5 1/8" piece of Sahara Sand
- 4 x 5 1/4" cherry Cobbler cardstock
- Sahara Sand Pad
- White ink and embossing powder
- embossing buddy
- Thankful Branches Stamp set (and framelits)
- Linen Thread
- Wink of Stella
I started from the bottom and worked my way up, stamping! I embossed the ground first, then stamped the tree, using the embossing buddy between each step.
I sponged the "halo" on the tree, and filled in the ground, adding Wink of Stella on top, and making the star on the tree "twinkle"
Add the Christmas Cardinal and some linen thread and layer it up! Easy!
This is truly a gorgeous set, and I love that there are so many possibilities with this versatile set! As I mentioned in the video, during the month of July, for every $50 you spend, you earn a $5 coupon toward a purchase in August, and GUESS when this set is available? That's right: Just during the month of August!! You can see all the details on the special by clicking the pic below. The set is not listed in my supplies (as it is not available until August 2nd, 2016), but add it to your wish list. It is called Thoughful Branches.
