Christmas in July!

It's time to think about planning ahead for Christmas and those winter birthdays!  What odd advice for July!  I want to show you two cards that I made in two very different styles using the super cute bundled up girl and her cat digital stamp by Kathy Cyr.

The first card is a bundled up birthday card, perfect for those colder weather winter birthdays.  This card features a white card with embossed happy birthday folder on shimmery white paper.  I used water color pencils (General Brand - Kimberly)  to "color" the stamp, then I made the painted look using a very fine tip brush.  With just a little patience and time you can have the look of a water color painting.  I think she has a really sweet soft look.  Rather than leaving her on the card stock she was printed on, I fussy cut around her and mounted the cut out stamp with dimensional tape.  I also used a make a wish rub on on white card stock and some pink twirly twine.

This second card looks very different!  It is Christmas in July!

The card features background patterned papers from Jillibean Soup mounted on a white card.  For the coloring on this digital stamp I used Sakura Gel pens and my Crayola colored pencils.  The sentiment was printed on white card stock and the edges inked.  I'm proud to say that I have one Christmas Card created!

Thanks for stopping by!
