Hey there!  I know we’re all excited that the August release is coming soon, but I am still having fun with the Christmas in July release!  How is your Christmas card stash coming along?  I’ve made some decent progress this month.  I was particularly excited to make a card with the cute Bless Your Hearth digital stamps.  You all know me as a Splitcoast Dirty Dozen Alum, right?  I love my SCS daily challenges and you should see this week’s Sketch Challenge! It seems like it was made for the Holiday Toppers SVGs.

I use Microsoft Word to print out my digital stamps and when I inserted the two stamps into my Word document, I decided to also bring in the Holiday Toppers file to see how it would all work out and see how well it worked for the sketch.  I often like to plan out my cards in this way so I have a roadmap to get it completed.

It’s exciting to see how closely the card comes out compared to the original plan.  This one worked out just right.  I tried something a little different on this card.  I normally use my ScanNCut to cut my images with a border.  But I cut these penguins without a border around them.  Then I added a border in the machine and cut again on plain black cardstock.  I offset it a bit behind the image as a shadow.  Something about the glow of a fireplace inspired me to have a shadow, and I think it works.

I added a few finishing touches of Stickles for sparkle, Nuvo glaze for the glass of milk, and some sparkly rhinestone snowflake stickers.  Feels pretty festive to me!

Here are the products that I used today:

Great idea to cut a “shadow” from card stock. It really gives a lot of dimension
