23 Weeks Until Christmas

The past week went by like a flash. I feel like I blinked and missed it therefore I am again a few hours late posting my card. It was complete before I headed to bed, but I did not have the right lighting to take photos. This week I am again using the Digi Stamps 4 Joy July 2014 Monthly Christmas Challenge image. I love cats and this image is too cute.

Christmas Card Week 23 - July 2014 Holiday Card

I used the following materials to create the card: Irresistible Bling by Digi Stamps 4 Joy printed on Georgia Pacific white cardstock. The image was colored using Sargent Art Water Color Pencils and a CTMH Medium Waterbrush (retired) was used to blend and soften the colors. I fussy cut the image using a craft knife and glass mat.

The pre-cut and scored card base is 6.5" high and 5" wide. I inked the edges with a Sponge Dauber and CTMH Exclusive Inks™ Cocoa Stamp Pad (Z2114). I used a piece from Music Note Brown Noel (item #35582) from Making Memories's Noel collection to cover the card front (how many of my friends from Crop Chocolate remember this collection?). I distressed the edges with scissors. I stamped "Merry Christmas" with Cocoa ink on a scrap of red cardstock and dovetailed the end. The greeting is from the My Acrylix™ A Holiday stamp set (A1115). I used 3-D Foam Tape (Z1151) to attach the fussy cut image to the card. Except for the image, everything was from my stash.

I am linking my card to the Digi Stamps 4 Joy July 2014 Monthly Christmas Challenge and Decosse's Dynamite Doodles 12 Months of Christmas Card Link Up.

I hope you like my card and thanks for visiting today.
