Delivering the Presents

Good morning friends, I have another Christmas in July card to share with you using one of the new stamps from Lili of the Valley. This is called 'Delivering the Presents'. His cute little hat with the geometric patterns on it reminded me of those Nordic sweaters that were popular ages ago, and I had to recreate the look with my own patterned paper. I used the Nordic Winter stamp set from Waltzingmouse Stamps. LOVE that stamp set, it is my most favorite Christmas pattern making set ever made!

I used one of my favorite color combos for this card, Stampin Up's Baja Breeze, Red and Kraft. So pretty!

The little guy is colored with Copics. The snowflakes are glittered with glass glitter, the dies are from My Favorite Things. See those ribbons? They were a great find from my local craft store last year, a set of three different Scandinavian patterns! 

Well, that's all for today, maybe my next card will be a normal, summer card, lol! It still feels a little weird to be making Christmas cards in July!

Thanks for visiting!
