Xmas in July

I have always loved the thought of xmas in July... I think it stems from my summer camp days when that was one of the best weekly themes... secret santas, a summer turkey dinner...

Here's my ATC for the current Wicked Wednesday:

The book title was The Bear Who Slept Through Christmas,
and I stamped so that the "Christmas" showed in the O!

Supplies and notes:

  • Library card base monoprinted with Festive Berries and Evergreen Bough DI with Tim's StampAnon stripes stencil in a plaid fashion.  The colors got a little muddy, but it matches the vintage tone of the project
  • Hero Arts "Jolly" stamp in Tim's Embossing Ink and heat-embossed with Stampendous EP in Green Tinsel
  • The red pom-pom trim is from Target
  • The red twine is from The Dollar Tree
  • The bells are from my xmas stash
  • I added the red "holly" berries with a Viva Paper Pearl tube
