Christmas in July

Hi again friends,

Today I'm sharing a card with you that is up on the Hero Arts blog.

As I mentioned last time, we're challenging you to create a card thats themed Christmas in July, over on A Blog Named Hero, so this is another take on that theme.

I used the Hot Air Balloons from CM325 Sky’s the Limit stamp set, and turned them into baubles--nothing like stretching your stamps to use them in unusual ways!

I coloured them in using copic markers, then added extra details with a glitter gelly roll pen and white gel pen. I diecut a stitched circle and added my sentiment from CL722 Merry Christmas Messages.

I added my baubles, some on dimensional adhesive, and drew in the string and bows.  For the backing card, I took PS311 Hero Hues Premium Cardstock in Mist (How gorgeous is this colour!) and I repeatedly stamped the sentiment (from an older out of stock set, but any of your sentiment sets would work, or even snowflakes!) in a coordinating ink, for a lovely soft tone on tone look.

I hope you like it! 

See you again soon,
