On a piece of green Core'dinations Cardstock, I embossed it with the Couture Creations Tickle Me Feathers Embossing Folder. I then lightly sanded the embossed areas and then with my finger I applied some gold ink onto the embossed areas. Then using some burlap string I tied little bows for the ornaments and on the hangers for the ornaments. Added some bling and viola, I have a Christmas in July embossed card! One card down many more to go!

Christmas In July Embossed Card for CropStop
Hi! Today I am sharing a Christmas in July embossed card I made for the CropStop. I admit it I usually wait until the last minute to make my Christmas cards and then end up not having enough time to do them. So this year I decided to start early, really early!
The first thing I did was apply some red and white acrylic paint onto a Gelli Arts Plate and spread it around with a brayer and then pressing a piece of white cardstock onto it. Using Gelli Plates is a fun way to create different textures and designs. Once the paint was dry, I used a punch to create the ornaments. I then used some gold embossing powder on the ornaments to add the polka dots and the top of the ornaments.
Thank you for looking and I hope I inspired you to give it a try! Be sure to check out the CropStop Shop to find all the supplies to create this project and so much more!
