July Stampit Blog Hop



Christmas Joy


As Christmas in July approached, visions of Merry Merlot danced in my head.  I thought and considered what can I make with Merry Merlot and Night in Bethlehem.  I sat at my craft table with my tools and supplies.  After a time, this is what my wondering eyes beheld:


Card Front:


The Large Letter Framelits were used to cut out the J and Y.  I used two of the Layering Circles dies to make the O.  A larger circle with a smaller circle inside of it.  I stamped the star in Merry Merlot on the smaller circle.  I stamped the smaller stars on the cutout card front with Night of Navy stamping off first, then layered it onto a Merry Merlot Mat.  Use foam strips to pop up the J, circle with the star stamped, and Y.  Die cut the Bethlehem scene from Night of Navy, adhere to Whisper White.

Inside of Card:


Use Merry Merlot to stamp the sentiment.  Use Night of Navy to stamp the stars, stamping off first.  Mat Whisper White panel to Merry Merlot.  Die cut the image and adhere.  Adhere panel to inside of card.










Oh, wonder of wonder!  This is just how i envisioned it would be.  I love it when that happens!

Happy Stamping!


Congratulations to last month's blog hop winner!
