Christmas in July...a day late!!!

Hi there! So it's been a while since I've had a chance to post. So today, I got together with my friend Vanessa and we stamped! I decided to work on some Christmas cards from last weeks challenges. But this card was meant to serve two purposes. First, the Arty Girlz Challenge Blog( challenge this week is "Blue." And second, last week's Stamp Something Challenge ( and the Papertake Weekly Challenges ( "Christmas in July." So I made this "Blue Christmas" card. I used two shades of blue and layered them. I then stamped a JOY snowman tag from a Stampin' Up set with Versa Mark then used silver embossing powder to color it. I used a Fiskars lace corner punch on the single corner. I also used some blue ribbon between layers. Finally, I punched flowers using a Stampin' Up floral punch. I layered two of each in opposing shades of blue and then punched a silver brad in the center of each. They were mounted with 3-D mounting squares in the corners. I'll be posting more of todays art projects later! Hope you enjoy and thanks for stopping by! )
