I know we’re all excited for the August release soon, but I am still having fun with the fun Christmas in July release! How is you Christmas card stash coming along? I’ve made some decent progress this month. I was particularly excited to make a card with the fun Bless Your Hearth digital stamps. And this week’s Sketch Challenge inspired me to also use the Holiday Toppers SVGs.
I use Microsoft Word to print out my digital stamps and when I inserted the two stamps into my Word document, I decided to also bring in the Holiday Toppers file to see how it would all work out and see how well it worked for the sketch.
It’s exciting to see how closely the card comes out compared to the original plan. This one worked out just right. I tried something a little different on this card. I normally cut my images out with a border. But I used my ScanNCut to cut these penguins without a border. Then I added a border and cut again on plain black cardstock. I offset it a bit behind the image as a shadow. Something about the glow of a fireplace inspired me to have a shadow.
I added a few finishing touches of Stickles for sparkle, Nuvo glaze for the glass of milk, and some sparkly rhinestone snowflake stickers. Feels pretty festive to me!
