'tis the season (#christmasinjuly2017)

Today marks the end of my Christmas in July series. My goal was to get a  jump start on my Christmas cards and encourage you to do the same. I actually exceeded my goal of 20 by two so I am happy. Hopefully, if I do this again next year I can get a few more people to participate with me! A huge thank you to all who did.

After stamping Purple Onion Designs Icicle (polar bear), I colored with Copic markers and fussy cut out. I used several dies from the My Favorite Things Stylish Snowflakes set to cut three snowflakes. I backed the snowflake cutouts with patterned paper and then reinserted the die cuts. After attaching the stamped image, I added the Purple Onion Designs 'tis the season sentiment stamped in blue sky ink.

Products: Purple Onion Designs stamps, PTI dp and cs, MFT dies, MFT and PTI ink, Copic Markers
Copics: Bear-E50, E51, E53, R00, R20; Scarf/Hat-W00, E81, B41, B32, B34
