''Christmas in July''

Hi there,
Wow what fantastic weather we are getting in my part of Scotland, been like this for 2 to 3 weeks with the odd bit of rain though still very warm. Hope it lasts a bit longer, though I'm not one to sit out in it!! Anyways, hoping this might help to keep us cool, I'm here to share with you another little bit of ''Christmas in July''. I've been loving Hunkydory's new Christmas ranges, so I just had to have another little spend to add to my ever growing stash! Lol...And here is what I created with my new goodies, hope you like it!


On a 7x7 scalloped card blank, I matt and layered tartan adorable scorable with gold mirri card for my base. The poinsettia is a new stamp from For the Love of Stamps called ''Perfect Poinsettia'' and is absolutely fabulous! I stamped the image 6 times on watercolour card then cut each in different sizes to be able to decoupage it. Before putting together, I coloured with my LuminArte Twinkling H2O's that I haven't used in a very long time and I must say I think it turned out brill!. I added some 'Ice Diamond' glitter to the edges of the leaves and petals for effect. I die cut holly leaves and berries from the same watercolour card and coloured with the H2O's too and adding pearl drops to complete the berries, then  die cut pine sprigs from gold mirri card. Finishing off with a die cut sentiment and some pearl gems.
