Christmas in July Blog Hop

|
Hard to wrap my head around anything Christmas right now, but its really never to soon to start preparing. My goal in life is to have everything ready before December starts, including our Christmas cards. HAHA Yeah...Right...  


Either way, I'm so excited to be joining another blog hop hosted by Scrap N' Stamp. They are giving away these awesome stocking dies as a gift with every $50 purchase! To find the link to  your next stop keep reading until the end.


My first priority was using this gorgeous stocking die. I immediately knew it needed to be inlayed with glitter paper, which also allowed me to make three at the same time. Win Win. The process is simple but slightly time consuming. Cut it the three times from different paper, then start piecing them together. 


I really wanted the stocking to stay the focal point, so a simple design with lots of white space worked. Some old patterned Christmas paper down the side gave it a tad more interest. 


For my sentiments, I heat embossed white onto black cardstock and did some fussy cutting. They went onto a basic tag die. I made some simple bow embellishments using coordinating twine and strategically glued it down. A small banner at the bottom completed the sentiments but also help to fill the void space. For that I just raided my Christmas sets to find some basic sayings. (These happen to be from some old Lawn Fawn sets.)


I loved this sparkle paper, it was thin and didn't leave a glitter mess behind. In fact the paper is quite smooth, a unique characteristic. They even sell in in an assortment of colours and even a variety pack. Plus the sparkle of these cards is out of this world but of course impossible to capture in a photo.
