Christmas in July

Please scroll down for my Stamptacular build a card post.

Hi Ladies, Firstly I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone that has congratulated me on my Magnolia DT place. Your kind words and support mean so much xox.

Onto my card... this week on Cupcake Challenge 49, Pops has set the theme of Chrismas. This card also fits with Cute Card Thurday Challenge 69 which also has a christmas theme and WOJ Challenge 39 where they would like to see some piercing. For my DT card I have used my Willow with Lantern stamp from WOJ and she is coloured with distress inks and I have added some red stickles to the holly for a bit of sparkle.

The papers are from DCWV the luxury stack (I think) and they have a beautiful sheen on them in real life. The pale blue panel also has a pattern on it similar to the darker one, but unfortunately it hasn't photographed very well! For a bit of added detail I have pierced the corner of the image, my MS doily lace punch has made another appearance and I finished off with some jewels. I am awaiting a MS snowflake punch (should arrive tomorrow with my sister) and I might add some sonwflakes to this card too, I like it but I think it may be a bit plain....not sure!!!

For the inside I have partially stamped willow and coloured her as per the image on the front. I have used the same DCWV papers and the sentiment is from studio g.

Finally a close up.

Card/Paper: White, navy card, DCVW
Stamps: WOJ - Willow with Lantern, Studio g
Colouring: Distress inks - vintage photo, tattered rose, broken china, worn lipstick, peeled paint, weathered wood, black soot.
Embellishments: jewels, red stickles, silver stickles
