Christmas In July Part II

Hi everyone, Toni here with some more Christmas cards. Trying to get ahead of my holiday crafting projects and I made a few more cards I would love to share with you.

I had so much fun utilizing many of T!m's goodies and I hope you enjoy the cards. 

The first cards I used the Sizzlets Mini Snowflake Rosette and also the regular size Snowflake Rosette. Distressed the edges with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink and Glossy Accents sprinkled with Diamond Dust provided the glisten to the card. 
Titles on all 3 of my cards were cut out using T!ms Thinlits Holiday Greetings. 
The next card I used the 3D Embossing Folder Lumber and distressed with Gathered Twigs. I cut out Sizzix Layered Holiday Wreath 3 times in different colored green cardstock and layed on top of each other for thickness. 

Cut two sets of the bows in order to layer out of red velvet cardstock. Applied Diamond Dust with Glossy Accents for some shine. Used Stickles in Rhubard for holly berries. 

The last card I used the Sizzix Window die cut and cut out chipboard then white cardstock in order to make it 3D. The mat behind the window was used with Kraft cardstock and run through Lumber 3D embossing folder. I then cut out several of Thinlits Holiday Mini Greens in order to create a layered effect. Added Nuvo Drops in Berry Red for the holly. My homemade snow was created by mixing baking soda, glue, white paint and applied to the base of the window and on the greenery. While wet I sprinkled Diamond Dust. 
Hoping you enjoyed this little bit of Christmas In July and that it inspires you to get a head start on your Christmas cards. Happy Creating xoxo Toni
