Christmas in July

Well, it's Christmas in July time again. This week I'm highlighting some new stamps from Chapel Road Artstamps and sharing a card for the Tuesday Throwdown challenge, which just happens to be Christmas in July. I just love the grungy look of these stamps. Of course, stamping on watercolor paper does add to the grungy look. I used stamps from the Pointsettia Plate and the Holly Plate.
To make my card, I first stamped the holly corners. Then I dry embossed the December calendar with a texture fade from Tim Holtz. I highlighted December and 25 using markers. The pointsettia was stamped on a separate piece of paper by coloring with markers direct to stamp. I roughly cut out the flower and adhered it to the calendar panel. Merry Christmas in July.

What a great Christmas card. Your corners looks super and I LOVE the poinsettia. So glad you joined us at Tuesday Throwdown this week.

Oooohhh beautiful! Love these stamps with this embossed calendar. I haven't played with this set yet - too intimidated by those artsy poinsettias... :-)
