Hi friends!  I have seen some Christmas in July cards being posted on FB and Instagram and figured I better get going on mine for this year too!  Have you started yours yet?

I'm playing along with AAA Cards: CAS Game #144 where they want Maxi white space.  My kind of challenge!  I die cut a piece of white card stock using Papertrey Ink's Tipped Top dies and stamped a sentiment from a Papertrey Ink stamp set.  I then stamped & clear embossed and then die cut this adorable bird from the Christmas Cookies stamp set by Catherine Pooler.

I colored it in with my Zig Clean color brush markers and used my Glimmer pen as my paint brush.  Not sure if you can see the sparkle, it was hard to capture on the photo, but it sparkles so much in real life.

I added the tipped top panel to my card base and some black and white twine finishes it off.  While I had my supplies out, I made a couple more using the Christmas Cookies stamp set.

This one uses the emboss resist technique on the tree.  Same layout just a different sentiment and image.

For this one I just stamped the image in the aperture.  Super clean and simple.
