Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge 35 - Christmas in July


The challenge this week at Cheery Lynn Designs challenge blog is Christmas in July.  I love to make Christmas cards, I have so much paper and so many holiday images.  I followed this weeks sketch from The Sweet Shop for my card.  I love all the layers.  I used my Scalloped Square Lg Stackers for the gold background.  Then using my  Scalloped Square Mega Doily dies I created the rest of the scalloped panels.  I love that you can make just about any size you want with the Reflection dies.  I used Anastasia Border for the lovely lace border.  I used my Scalloped Oval XL Stackers and coordinating Silver Oval Stackers for the adorable image called Pammy's Stocking from Mo Manning.  I printed her onto Cryogen paper and colored her with Copic markers.  


Using the same dies, I finished the inside of the card as well.  The DP is from the December 25th paper pad from KaiserCraft.  Finished size is 6" square.
