Christmas in July 29


Featured today is one of my very favorite card techniques!  The tricky part is that when you're in the midst of making it, it looks like it is going to be a total disaster!  Yes, really - then when  you get all the layers together, and the mats placed....  it looks GREAT!  Seems you just have to work through the scary moments when you think it isn't going to work.

Click HERE for the measurements (and a bit of a how-to) on making this Triple-Time Stamping card.

This card features the Watercolor Winter stamp set which is also a two-step stamping set (stamp the base color, then use the Stamp-a-ma-jig to place the top color).  I guess this card is a Triple-Double!  :)


I used lots of colors on this card - Gumball green as the card base and ivy leaves, Wild Wasabi for the evergreen needles.  Baked Brown Sugar is the acorn base layer color.  I used Cherry Cobbler ink for the poinsettia and holly berries - Bravo Burgundy (ret.) for the darker layer on the poinsettia.  Early Espresso for the evergreen twig, and top layers on the acorn, and the holly & ivy.

Whew!  That really sounds like a LOT more work than it was. 

I hope you enjoy today's card.  Only 2 more days of Christmas in July to go.
