More Christmas in July

Hold onto your hats because there is going to be a lot of posting going on here soon and it will almost all be Christmas cards.

Cuttlebug Challenges is hosting a Christmas in July week. It started on the 19th and is ending on the 24th - "Christmas" eve in July. On the 24th they are posting 24 one hour challenges. I will participating in as many of these as I can. I realized that since I got my Cricut in January - I have NO Christmas images/cartridges. Luckily there are about 2 on the Designers Calendar, but I think this 24 challenge thing is going to be very tough without it.

With that being said, this card is for their regular challenge per week.

Snowflake - Designers Calendar Cartridge™. Cut at 2" - that was too small to cut properly - used it as the back white diamond and re-cut the image at 3". I ran the top layer through the Cuttlebug™ with the A2 D'vine Swirls Emboss Folder™, glued the same green card stock as the strip to the back so the color would come through. Then I popped it with pop dots.

Green stripe was scrap paper from the doggy mat I made a few days ago. LOVE up-cycling!

The stamp was done with Hero Arts™ CL272 set and ColorBox olive green ink.

I used Crayola™ Glitter Glue (no kidding - I had it from about 10 years ago and it's still working!) for the dots around the snowflake.


This card qualifies for the following challenges:
Cuttlebug Challenges: Sketch and Christmas
The Cuttlebug Spot: Christmas in July
