Christmas in July

Hi everyone! It’s the 2nd Day of The Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge and I was running out of time so I made this quick card. Well, it was supposed to be quick but that never happens… I used a few different challenge blogs for inspiration and will link to them all at the end of this post.



I started yes by cutting and adhering 2 pieces of ribbon to the card base. Then I used a rub on to add a Christmas sentiment to a rounded rectangle. I drew a line to act as a strong for the ornament that I die cut with a freebie from Taylored Expressions when I ordered from them with my gift card I won from their challenge a few weeks ago. I colored the ornament with markers and Wink of Stella! I popped up all the element with a single layer of foam tape besides the red star, I doubled up the foam for it to make it really pop off the card! This is a super CAS card, I was inspired by the amazing Ardyth Percy-Robb for this one. She’s the queen of clean and simple Christmas cards. Go check her out!!
