Christmas in July, Clean and Simple

Hi everyone!  It’s time for this month’s Creative Challenge with My Favorite Things!   The MFT Design Team Creative Challenge is a monthly feature where we are challenged to explore our creative side using a specific theme, product, or technique.  This month we are celebrating Christmas in July.  I have three cards to share, all pretty clean and simple.

My first uses Jumbo Snowflake Die-namics and Clearly Sentimental about Christmas.  After die-cutting the snowflake from Sweet Tooth card stock, I adhered it to a base (of the same paper), added lots of sparkle with Star Dust Stickles and stamped the sentiment in Black Licorice ink.

Inside, I stamped a second sentiment, adding in a couple of snowflakes from Seasonal Sentiments.

My next card uses Let It Snowflake and Accent It-Celebrate Die-namics with an accent strip of Washi Pattern stamped in Kraft ink.  The clear rhinestones were colored to match using an E43 Copic marker.

Inside, I stamped a sentiment from Clearly Sentimental about Christmas using Kraft ink and added a second Washi Pattern along the bottom.

Lastly, I used By The Letter Lowercase to die-cut letters spelling “merry & bright” to create a totally non-traditional Christmas card.  The brighter letters were cut from Razzle Berry, Limeade, Orange Fizz, Blu Raspberry, Lemon Drop and Grape Jelly card stock.  Once adhered, I covered each letter using Star Dust Stickles.  The tiny Lemon Drop star was stamped from LJD On the Line.

Inside, I added thin strips of card stock along the bottom and Blu Raspberry ink to stamp the sentiment from Clearly Sentimental about Christmas.
