Christmas in July Swap


Second post for today. I made this card for the Stamperoo's Christmas in July Swap. I made 34 swaps and 6 extras to add to my stash for Christmas. I love this scene, it definitely has a Northern Hemisphere feel. As we don't have snow at all, let alone Christmas it's something I can only dream about.

Stamps: A Wish for Peace, Occasional Greetings
Card: Handsome Hunter, Basic Grey, Whisper White
Ink: Handsome Hunter, Basic Grey & Summer Sun Markers
Accessories: Aqua Painter, 2 Way Glue Pen, Dazzling Diamonds, Wide Oval Punch, Cuttlebug, Scallop Oval Nestabilities, Dimensionals

I kept the design fairly plain, and used Handsome Hunter card, a colour I only seem to use for Christmas cards. I could have added some brads or crystals if I had enough to go round, which I will probably add to the cards that remain. Hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by today.
