AAA Cards Challenge #119 - Christmas in July

Oh my does Christmas sound appealing at the moment! We're sweltering here in the UK so the idea of a bit of coolness seems very good.

AAA Cards new challenge is all about Christmas in July and a great chance to get your stash of card on the go.

The sponsor for this challenge is Happy Little Stampers and I've used their newish Let It Snow stamp set. Ahh the coolness of snow.......

I stamped using black ink and then heat embossed the snowflakes and greeting with sparkly hologram powder - can never have too much sparkle on Christmas cards!

I kept my card CAS by only using one layer - well technically two layers - and leaving plenty of empty white space.

Stamps: HLS, Let It Snow
Inks: Versafine, onyx black; Versamark, clear + Funstamps hologram embossing powder
Die: MFT Dienamics, double stitched rectangles

If you hop on over to AAA Cards blog you'll find lots of fabulous DT inspiration to get you in the mood for creating Christmas cards. We've the always awesome Maria from White Mood joining in as a Guest Designer as well as the wonderful Kylie from Happy Little Stampers - just go check out her amazingly colourful card using her own products! Find it all HERE.

Thanks for looking today, it's been so good to have your company.

And keep crafting!

  1. I agree, you can never have too much sparkle (on anything) the bold black snowflakes

  2. Such a cool CAS Christmas card, Jane! Love that you heat-embossed the stamped images and the sentiment with sparkly hologram powder. The double stitched frame is a nice touch too. Hideko xx

  3. Ooooh I love all that sparkle! Fabulous card Jane!
