Inspired Stamps Christmas in July

 Christmas in July here at Inspired Stamps.  The DT has put together some projects that are sure to motivate you to start working on your Christmas cards.  Every year I say I will start early and make my Christmas cards, but I am always making them right up until Christmas Eve.  I hope to do a better job this year, how about you?  Do you like making your cards ahead of time or are you always making them right up until Christmas?

For this card I used Winter Ruth and Perfect Christmas Sentiments, Inspired StampsWinter Ruth is so versatile since she can be used alone or you can add one of the six add-ons.  I chose to use the cross with a heart in it, since I wanted to use the sentiment Celebrating Jesus.  Since that is what Christmas is all about, the celebration of our Savior's birth.
I colored the image with Copic markers and added some white enamel paint for her "fur" collar and the snow.
The background was embossed with a Sizzix embossing snowflake folder and inked with Distress inks (broken china, faded blue jeans and walnut ink).  I spritzed the whole thing with shimmer spray.  I added the red border (dp My Minds Eye).
Remember that Inspired Stamps is continuing their sale of 25% off your order through July 31, go to the Inspired Stamps Store and shop for your favorites today and get a start on your Christmas cards.  Don't forget to check out the other DT blogs for more fabulous projects and ideas.  Thank you to everyone who stopped by last week and visited our Christmas tag blog hop.  I appreciated all your nice comments.  Have a great day and stay cool.
