Good morning, my friends. Happy Thursday. I hope that you are having a wonderful day. We are still in the midst of the heat wave although it is not quite to hot as it has been the last month or so. There is to be rain in our area later today and I hope that it comes over my house.
In the meantime, I have a card to share with you today. It is for the Challenge Your Stash challenge on Splitcoast Stampers. Each month we have a theme to use to make a card. One of the members selects the theme and then we all make a card that goes along that theme. This month I was the one who selected the theme and it is to use Red, White, and Blue for your card. You would think that being it is July and the colors, that it would be some kind of patriotic, but my card is quite unlike that. I have been in the process of making Christmas cards and came across this packet of paper called Christmas Season by Maja Designs. It is kind of vintage looking and not your run-of-the-mill Christmas colors. This Santa image jumped out at me and I knew he would be perfect for the challenge.
And here is the inside.
The Santa is on a little flap attached to the right side of the white card base. I used Stampin Up Bordering Blue and Read Red for the mats for the image and the sentiment. The sentiment is from SU Snowflake Sentiments. A doily cut in half and a small white bow finished it off. Hope you like it.
Maggie, your card is so pretty inside and out. Fun challenge this month with so many possibilities. I'm glad you chose to go with Christmas!ReplyDelete
WOW - this is a stunning use of the challenge Maggie and I love your resultant card!ReplyDelete
They're perfect colors for Christmas in July! What cute papers and image, and I love the card design and the really nice sentiment inside. I hope you got enough rain to cool off, but not too much. The devastation in Kentucky is heartbreaking.ReplyDelete
