Christmas In July

Seeing the challenge at Less Is More #424 this week has inspired me to add to my growing pile of Christmas cards...

The image is a cute design I found on an embroidery website years ago...

I used heavy white linen card for the base  - I feel this adds a bit of texture to one layer cards and it's lovely to colour as the texture shows through.  I've used pro markers to colour him, and a silver gel pen for the buckle.  I've cheated a little for a one layer card as I've finished it off with a tiny cotton wool ball for the pom-pom. The greeting was created using Candy Square BTN Striped font.

I'm also playing along with the challenges at:

Lil Patch of Crafty Friends #137 - Christmas In July
Christmas Card Throwdown July - Santa
My Time To Craft #436 - Christmas In July
The Paper Players #500 - CAS and celebrate (and a Happy Birthday PP!)

Thanks for visiting
Stay safe

  2. Love the clean and simple design, and your colouring is perfect. It is a bit of a cheat to add the pompom for our one layer challenge, and we also ask for areas of card with no texture at Less is More. That said, it's a cracking card, and thanks for playing along with us.


  3. Smashing make, super image and beautifully coloured too
