Christmas In July - part 2

Here is the part 2 of my Christmas cards collection created with the 'Carols of Christmas' bundle This new set of products are part of a Mega Bundle in the new Holiday Catalogue which will be available from September. But the Carols of Christmas was an early release promotion, celebrating Christmas in July. In my Previous post, you can view some of the earlier cards I have created, using the same products.

This first card uses the Christmas DSP that is in the current annual catalogue called the 'Be Merry Designer Series Paper'. The good news is that you can order these products now, not needing to wait till September for the Holiday Catalogue release. 

This second card also uses the DSP as above, but it I have added a few of the Christmas tree dies, sitting on top of the DSP.

Here I have created a template using the negative image of the Christmas tree and the night sky thinlit dies. Once I created a template, I added some dazzling diamond glitter to my embossing paste and scrapped it over the my template. I love the sparkle on the trees and the night sky.

Here I have created a template same as above, but this time I have sponged over the top of the template, instead of using embossing paste.

Here I have created a little shaker card using the Christmas Tree thinlit die, and inside I have added more dazzling diamond more of the 'Be Merry' DSP.

Here I have used the branch from the Colourful Seasons Bundle, and the baubles from the Carols of Christmas bundle. I wanted to achieve he look of the baubles hanging from the branch. I have created the background using hard wood mount stamp set.

Here I have used the wood textures DSP as the background and again added some Christmas trees, a very simple card but very effect at the same time.

This one is similar to the first card, using the 'Be Merry' DSP as the background.

These next few cards are create using the Colour Theory DSP as the background. Layering it the vellum frame with the greeting embossed in white embossing powder.

  1. Hello, Irene, your cards are lovely as always😘 I admire how you work a bundle or Stamp Set and show how you can make so many cards or projects with each set; just by changing the background and colours. Thank you for sharing your talent ❤️

    1. Thanks Christine for your lovely comments, I do love bundles and product suites. It is a little bit of work making all these cards, but I think its worth it.
