12 Days of Christmas in July Day 1

Welcome to The Twelve Days of Christmas (in July)! Over the next 12 days I'll be showcasing projects to help you get a head start on your holiday crafting so that you are ACTUALLY ready when the holidays arrive this year.

This first project uses the Stampin' Mist Ghosting technique.

If you aren't familiar with this technique be sure to check out my video tutorial by clicking the Tutorials tab above. For this particular look I began by sponging Pool Party, then Island Indigo, Dapper Denim, Night of Navy and Elegant Eggplant inks, finishing with the Pool Party all over the panel at the end to pull all of the colours together. I stamped my ghosted images using the snowflakes from the Flurry of Wishes stamp set.

The vellum element is die-cut using the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits. On Whisper White card stock, I stamped and heat embossed in silver the medium and two smaller snowflakes, punching them out with the Flower Medallion and Snow Flurry punches respectively. The sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy ink and die-cut using the Lots of Labels Framelits. The only embellishments here are some silver metallic thread and a few rhinestones in the centres of the snowflakes. The card is built on a Smoky Slate card stock base.

On the inside I added a Whisper White card stock panel on which I stamped the medium snowflake again in Smoky Slate ink and then stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy over top.

Be sure to stop by tomorrow for more festive inspiration!
