Christmas in July

Hey there, This will be my first Christmas card of the year.  I am still trying to perfect the watercolor techniques with Distress Ink.  This was all stamped on Canon watercolor paper.
I stamped the Beautiful Blessings:Holiday greeting in waterproof black ink then again just below it with Vesamark ink. Clear embossed it for a drop shadow effect. This was for the PTI Make-it-Monday #291 resist shadow challenge.  I used red and green Distress Ink to watercolor over the greeting creating a diagonal line for the Reverse Confetti #50 sketch challenge. I did cut the rectangle panel with  Spellbinding die and popped it up with some foam tape. To enforce the diagonal line I stamped the SU bayberry sprigs in white ink and embossed them. Lastly I am entering this in the CAS-ual Friday's CFC#178 Chistmas in July challenge. Thanks for stopping by, Sue.


  1. Such a beautiful and unique Christmas card. Love the color choices with the watercolor background. The popped up die-cut really adds to your card. Thanks for sharing your creation with everyone at the Casual Fridays Christmas in July Challenge.

  2. What a great job on the embossing. You spaced it perfectly. I love the scripture verse and your card is very pretty.

  3. WOW! I love how you created the diagonal strip for the sketch with watercolor!


Thank you so much for your comments. It means a lot to me!
