Merriest Moments – Inspirations In Ink Blog Hop

Welcome to the Inspirations in Ink Blog Hop!

Thank you for hopping along with the Inspirations In Ink Blog Hop! This month’s theme is Christmas In July. You may be starting here or have come from another blog – either way you can find the link list at the bottom of this post so that you can see every blog post and idea today. I hope you enjoy all our Christmas in July Projects!

My Christmas in July card was created with just a few simple products that I had on hand. It was very easy and quick to create. It’s the perfect card if you send out lots of Holiday cards and you want to create multiples of a simple elegant card.

First I started with a Real Red cardstock cardbase, cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored in half and folded at 4-1/4″. Next, using a piece of the Silver and Gold DSP from Sale-a-bration, I die cut the scalloped rectangle from the Scalloped Contours Dies and adhered it to my cardbase. Then using the next smallest scalloped rectangle die, I die cut a piece of the Gold Foil sheets and adhered it to the Gold DSP Layer.

I die cut the next smallest scalloped rectangle die cut from a piece of Real Red cardstock and using a Mini Glue Dot adhered a the snowflake from the Wonderful Snowflakes to the Red Scalloped rectangle. I stamped the sentiment from the Merriest Moments stamp set in Real Red Ink on a scrap of Basic White cardstock, then die cut it with a label from the Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered it to the Red Scalloped rectangle, overlapping the snowflake a bit, with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Finally, I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the Red Scalloped rectangle to the Gold Foil layer on my card, and added a few Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels. Voila, a pretty Christmas card all ready to go!
