Christmas in July

These cards are made using the beautiful  Imagination Crafts 'Robin' stamp set

The stamps are designed to be easy to decoupage. The first card is a shutter card, the Robin is decoupaged but it doesn't show well in the photo. 

I coloured the images with Pro markers, used the small holly stamp to create borders and frames. I added some gold Stickles glitter glue on the scroll border and red Stickles on the holly berries. All the panels were layered on gold mirri board then I layered up the decoupage. 

The twisted easel was fun - I used the small scroll & holly stamps to create the border and frame the sentiment, decoupaged the robin & the holly and added LOADS of Stickles :-)

I'm taking these over to Sarn's Rudolph Day challenge. On the 25th of every month the challenge is to make 2 Christmas cards, and if you follow all 12 months you'll have at least 24 cards ready to go!

Thanks for stopping by
