Christmas in July
It is such a cold and wet winter’s day here…longing for some sunshine! So with that in mind, I have created a Christmas card!
I love to use stamp sets in a way that they are not intended for, and this is just one example. I have used the HA Playful animals set to create this card and the sentiment is from the Teeny Trees Waltzing Mouse set.
Here is the stamp set I used…see the tiny little branch of leaves and the little star…that is what I used!
I drew a circle with pencil first and then I just stamped the little branch around the circle in 2 different shades of green. Added the stars in red, a bow and some pearls and I was done!
I am entering this into the current Scrapbook Boutique Challenge where the theme is Christmas.
