Wishing you a Sunshiny Christmas

Living in the Southern Hemisphere we…usually…have a hot Christmas. Here is my take on a summer themed Christmas card.


  • Colorado Craft Company Ice Cream Day stamp set by Anita Jeram
  • Concord & 9th Seasonal borders stamp set
  • Uniquely Creative Christmas Sentiments stamp and die set
  • Avery Elle Peek a Boo Summer Pals stamp set
  • My Favorite Things Blueprints 27 die set

Creating card

  • Stamp tree border dies in three colours of green in the top third of the background. I used Altenew Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades and Evergreen.
  • Ink blend distress oxide ink in Tea Dye over the bottom two thirds of the background.
  • I used copics to create ground for the images to stand on and stamped some decorations in the Tea Dye ink for a tone on tone effect.
  • The images were copic colours and cut out with my Brother Scan n Cut.
  • The sentiments were stamped using Versafine Clair inks to match the colours in the images and die cut with either the matching die for the Merry Christmas or a flag sentiments strip die from the Blueprints 27 set.
  • The images and sentiments were adhered with glue dots and foam strips. I used three different thicknesses to give interest to the dimension of the card. The ice-creams were meant to be xmas decorations so I also adhered some embroidery cotton as hangers.

Thanks for stopping by and have a good day.
