Welcome to the Christmas in July blog hop! It might not feel like Christmas in this back-to-school time of year, but it we are celebrating Christmas in July in anticipation of the new Stampin’ Up Holiday Catalog coming out soon. I got a sneak peek on Friday and was blown away with the variety of holiday stamps, gorgeous papers and amazing embellishments that will take us from Halloween to Valentine’s Day! I don’t know about you but it’s my favorite time of the year!
If you have been following along, you know you came from Annette Sullivan‘s blog. Wasn’t her project awesome? Such talent! For mine, I played with the “Deck the Halls” sentiment in the Carols of Christmas stamp set and decided to actually embellish my card as if I actually was decorating for Christmas. So my sentiment became a picture hanging on the wall with a garland and some bling! I used the Card Front Builder Thinlit Dies to cut through the vellum which I placed over the patterned paper. To embellish, I wrapped some gold mini sequin trim around the adorable boxwood wreath embellishments and attached with a glue dot. I added ribbon to make it look like it was hanging from a wall and attached a Gold Faceted dot. I hope you like it. All the details for this project are listed below.
