Today I’m sharing another Christmas in July card using a (primarily) non-Christmas stamp set. This set is called “Tweet Birdies” and it is from Pawsome Stamps. I supplemented the set with a few Christmas ornaments from the Pawsome Stamps “Beary Christmas” set, along with a Christmas sentiment from the Pawsome Stamps “Just Sentiments – Christmas” set. All of the supplies I used are listed below.
To make this card, I stamped all the images in Copic-friendly ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I kept this card monochromatic in blue to give it a winter feel.
The branch I used from the “Tweet Birdies” stamp set has leaves, but since this was going to be a winter card, I simply cut those off after die cutting the branch.
I masked off a snowy hill, then used a bit of ink-blending and a few splatters to get the background to look snowy and give the card a bit of depth.
I then added some snow to the branch and the bird house using a bit of glue and some frosty-looking glitter I had in my stash.
I arranged all the components on my card – adding in the Christmas ornaments to give it a truly Christmas feel.
And lastly, for just a bit more sparkle, I added in a few snowflake sequins and blue sequins from Pawsome Stamps.
I hope you like this project and that you’ll check out your own crafty stash to see how you might be able to combine Christmas and non-Christmas sets to get a unique look you truly love!
Have a wonderfully creative day, everyone!
