It is Thursday and that means it is time for a new challenge at the Creative Knockouts Challenge Blog.  This week's theme challenge is Christmas in July.  Our sponsor is Paper Shelter and if you enter you have the chance to win 3 images from the shop.  

I used digi stamp Snowman to create my card.
       



Christmas in July Card Recipe

I know it is July and Christmas is 5 months away, but judging how quickly time is flying by, Christmas will be here before we know it!  I found this snowman in the Paper Shelter Shop and thought he looked like a lot of fun.  I decided to go with colors that aren't traditionally Christmas, but it is Christmas in July so I figured I could get away with some creative liberties.  LOL. 

As always, I printed this digi from Word.  I colored the snowman with some Copic Markers and I am quite pleased with the colors I chose.  The 'merry' word die is from Lawn Fawn and cut out in card stock that coordinates with the green in his scarf and hat.  I stamped Christmas using a stamp from Hero Arts (I cut the stamp between Merry and Christmas - crazy I know) and stamped it in a purple from Hero Arts that coordinated with the purple in his scarf as well.  The snow was embellished with clear Nuvo Drops.  I matted the card front with purple card stock and there you have it. 

Here are some affiliate links for products I used for this card.  No cost to you, but I get a small commission if you purchase a product through this link:
