Christmas In July

A Jillian Vance Design, Whimsie Doodles, Kecia Waters, Copic markers

A Jillian Vance Design made me do it, LOL!  It's "Christmas in July" on the AJVD blog this week, and I'm first up with this card.  I made it with the set "Happy Trails" by Whimsie Doodles.  Not thought of as a Christmas set, but just look at what it can do!

Kecia Waters, Copic markers

To make this card, I simply brayered Ranger's Adirondack Sailboat Blue and Distress Ink Faded Jeans onto white cardstock.  With a paint brush, I added dots of Copic White to appear like falling snow in the sky.  I tore some white cardstock to put at the base of my scene to appear as snow.  The trees, stars and bear are all from AJVD's "Happy Trails" by Whimsie Doodles and were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto X-Press It cardstock.  I colored these elements with Copic markers and fussy cut with detailed scissors to become part of the scene.  I added the string of lights from Jolee's.  I framed the scene with black cardstock and put onto a white cardstock base.

The sentiment is from AJVD's "Miss Adventures: Celebrate" by Whimsie Doodles.  That was stamped with my go-to sentiment ink, Tsukineko's Versafine Onyx Black.

Now back to summer.  I am in no way ready to start making Christmas cards on a regular basis.  Nice to know I have one done though, LOL.

Have a wonderful hot, sticky, warm, SUMMER day!
