Our new challenge today at Send a Smile 4 kids has the theme 'Christmas in July' and again we have three very generous sponsors: Dollar Graphics Depot ($15 gift certificate), A Day for Daisies ($12 gift certificate) and Fred She Said ($10 gift certificate).
For my first card I cut white card out to form ridges of snow and dusted the edges using distress ink. I then attached this to the lower edge of paper printed using a House Mouse CD ROM from Joanna Sheen to form a pocket and matted this combo onto blue core'dinations cardstock and white card.
I printed Boo Boo Bears Winter Frolic fron Dollar Graphics Depot twice. I cut the bears out from the second copy and decoupaged them onto the first. I then tucked this into the pocket formed ealier and fixed it to the card. I used a white Sakura gel pen to add falling snow to the decoupaged pieces.
Finally I added a peel off sentiment to core'dinations cardstock and attached it to the card.
For my second card I die cut a red mirri card bauble using a Die'sire die, stuck it onto gold mirri card and cut round it. I threaded narrow satin ribbon through this and fixed it to paper from a Papermania contemorary Christmas pack. This was then matted onto blue core'dinations cardstock and white card.
I coloured the body of the Christmas bulbs digi image from A Day for Daisies using Promarkers. The antlers were coloured using a silver gel pen and the hooves and bulbs were coloured using glitter pens. The image was then attached to the card using foam pads.
