Last Christmas in July

Today's card is the last Christmas card for July and the Merry Monday July Challenge to use any previous challenge.  I chose the sketch for week #17.  If you'd like to see what I did with this challenge before, click here.

The card base is Baja Breeze card stock.  To that I added a layer of Whisper White card stock that was run through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folderA piece of Snow Festival designer paper was matted with Cherry Cobbler card stockCherry Cobbler Scallop Dots Ribbon was added diagonally on the top and bottom of this layer.  A knot bow was made from the same ribbon
and added using glue dots.  This layer was then added to the card front.  I colored three images from the No Peeking stamp set using Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, Baja Breeze, Gumball Green and Soft Suede markers and stamped them on Whisper White card stock.  They all were punched out with a 1-1/4" Circle Punch and matted with 1-3/8" Cherry Cobbler circles.  Dimensionals were used to pop them up on the card.  I added some Dazzling Details and Rhinestones to the images for a little sparkle.  There it is - the last July Christmas card.  The Merry Monday challenge will be starting with all new challenges in August.  Stop over and join in the fun.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
