Distress Oxide ink Almost Christmas Card | Christmas in July 2021

Hello Everyone and thank you for joining me for the first in my Christmas in July 2021 series!! Let's jump right into the making of these two cards.

To start I have a piece of Soft Navy card stock and a green card stock out of my stash and I brought in two colours of Distress Oxide ink to add some depth and dimension to the panels, For the Navy panel I used Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot, and for the Green one I used Rustic Wilderness and Black soot and blended them around the edges of my coloured card panel.

I then used Brutus Monroes Gilded Embossing powder to add beautiful snowflakes all over the background from Simon Says Stamps Snowflake seasons stamp set and embossed a larger snowflake on some heavy weight vellum and used the matching dies to cut it out and adhered it down with a 3D foam square in the centre that I hid with my sentiment. The sentiment came from Simon Says Stamps Delicate Flowers Stamp set that I cut out with a circle die so that it wouldn't hide much of the snowflake and adhered it flat to the snowflake

After adhereding my snowflake to the center on my panel I used my new favourite glue to adhere the panel down to my A2 sized card base, I did leave a 1/4 inch border around the panel to have a pop of white and for it to tie into the white cardstock I used to stamp my sentiment on. If you would like a more in-depth look at how I made this card please check out the step by step video below, I have a full supplies list below the video as well if you would like to know exactly what I used.
