Christmas in July – 1

Filed under: Projects — July 29, 2016 @ 8:50 am

Christmas in July!  I gave it a try this year.  My first challenge was to use some Paper Pumpkin kit refills to make Christmas cards.  These 2 kits were perfect matches.  Did you know that Paper Pumpkin subscribers can purchase the refill kits for just $8 plus shipping and tax?  The refills contain all the supplies except for the stamp set and ink.  And there are always lots of great ideas for using your kits or just make them per the instructions.



For the first card from Many Manly Occasions, I just added a Garden Green panel to the die cut card base included in the kit.  The images are from the Embellished Ornaments stamp set.


For the second card, I just flipped the cellophane banner from the Banner Surprise kit upside down to make a Faker Shaker Christmas tree.  Add the included sequins and close with the included Washi tape.  I backed the tree with the “This Christmas” Specialty Designer Series Paper.  The Metallic Stickers and card base are included in the kit too!  I did stamp on the envelope using the Holly Jolly Greetings stamp set.
