I really hate to say that I was inspired to make a 'Christmas in July' card because of HSN's holiday sales going on today. So I won't say it. Instead I'll say that I was inspired by the Paper Smooches Sparks color challenge, the romantic Tuesday Trigger, and the CAS-ual Fridays polka dot challenge! ;)
This may be one of my favorite holiday cards. It also uses my hands-down favorite paper from My Mind's Eye "All is Bright" collection (remember this advent calendar I made with the set?? I love this paper!)
I was inspired by the lace top and vintage-y beige colors in the Tuesday Trigger. I also used polka dot paper for CAS-ual Fridays and the color inspiration for Paper Smooches.
The paper collection is great because I can cut out all these little elements and piece them to the card however I want. I also used the collection to paper piece the snowman and mittens (two left thumbs!).
Happy Christmas in July! I'm celebrating with a heat wave!
