Christmas in July

Hello again...second post for the day! This is a card that fits Cute Card Thursday "Stitch in Time" and Stamp Something "Christmas in July." I was dying to use this adorable Imaginisce stamp from their Wild Things Collection. This hippo is soooo cute! I colored him with watercolor pencils and highlighting with a white paint pen. I stamped the Santa hat from a wooden Christmas stamp I had. I colored it and cut out both pieces. I embellished the hat with 3-D white glitter paint. I cut 4 squares from red and green cardstock, then 4 squares from patterned Christmas papers. I mounted each in the corners alternating the prints. I drew stitching with the white paint pen. I glued a Christmas button on one square, red one on the other and some flowers with button brads. I used a CB folder on the red piece that the hippo is on. I typed the sentiment on the computer and printed it on white cardstock. I cut it and mounted it on to the green. Then, I adhered it to the center of the card. Thanks again for stopping by!
