Iron Craft - Christmas in July

uniko iron craft


How about a little Christmas in July?  Chaitali over at Cuts, Crops and Creativity asked me to join her for the Iron Craft Challenge #22 using Uniko Studio's Text Style Christmas Patterned Paper Collection and Christmas in July theme!  How fun is that?!


Here's a glimpse at the beautiful Uniko Studio Text Style Christmas Patterned Paper that I'm giving away! All you have to do is leave a comment here and/or at Chaitali's blog for your chance to win!


The Freshly Made Sketches #96, Friday Mashup #120, Merry Monday, Stamp and Create: Christmas in July, and Dare to Get Dirty at SCS inspired me even more to create a Christmas in July card!


While using the beautiful Text Style Christmas from Uniko Studio, I couldn't help but ink up the fabulous Label Love: Christmas stamp set to go along with it!  I love the variety of fonts on this card...two different fonts on the papers and then a classically bold one for the stamped sentiment!  Add a doily, a little ribbon, some button and twine, then a sprinkling of sequins...and my Christmas in July with Patterned Paper card is ready!


Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!

y'all know I can't resist doilies, stitching and seam binding! You keep reminding me to use up the gazillion sequins I have before it's out of style! LOL I'm still observing the experts... ;) ox
