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 fell in love with card-making many years ago and I’ve been hooked on it ever since. I love trying out new techniques and finding the perfect color combination for whatever I’m creating.

By nature, I am an uber-organizer and a steadfast planner, but as you’ll see, my creations are much more fluid. And while I love color theory, the concept of lights and shadows, and the importance of depth and perspective – these are not things I worry about when it comes to my creations.

I simply find joy in creating and delight in sharing.

I hope that by sharing my cards and other art with you here on my blog I can inspire you to create something you love!
