Christmas in July with The Paper Players
You may be getting tired of seeing them, but I am loving getting a head start on my Christmas cards. This one is also fairly flat and will be easy to mail. I may try some more of these, since I now have my LO and it came together fairly quickly once I had decided how to do this.
The Paper Players challenge 54 is the theme "Christmas in July" this week, so I decided to pull out some of my older Stampin' Up sets and see what I could come up with....using "Window on the World" I stamped the window image twice, once on Kraft and then on ivory for the curtain. I cut with a craft knife the inside of the window, including the curtain, replacing the curtain with the one from the ivory image, which I mounted over a piece of white card stock stamped with the trees from "Lovely As a Tree". The wreath then was stamped and colored, with added gems from Basic Gray. I thought this lovely paper from K&Co reminded me of wallpaper. Hope you enjoy and will check out this fun challenge, get a start, we are only 5 months away from Christmas!!
