BYSHC Christmas in July 2022 ~ Missing you

Welcome back! It’s the second day of our BYSHC Christmas in July 2022 Linky Hop. I used non-traditional colors for my simple, heart filled Christmas card. The colors were inspired by MFT’s Color Challenge #193.

I started by die cutting the tree with Simon Says Stamp Outline Heart of Christmas Die. It has two pieces, so I cut out both the outline of the whole tree and the outline of the hearts. I cut out an extra outline of the hearts so I can ink blend the hearts in with some post-its and Gina K Designs Ink Sea Glass, Turqoise Sea, Coral Reef, and Kraft. Then, I glued the outline of hearts over the tree.

I die cut out a hill with Honey Bee Stamps Hill Borders Die and stamped the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Heart of Christmas Stamp Set. I cut out 2.75″ by 5.75″ white cardstock and ink blended from top to bottom GKD Turquoise Sea, Sea Glass, and Coral Reef. I sprinkled some Iuile Stardust watercolor over the cardstock and glued on the hill and then the tree. I attached everything to a black mat and then to a mini slimline card.

Super happy you dropped by. Don’t forget to join us at BYSHC Blog for a chance to win a prize by linking up a Christmas/winter/holiday card. Have you a wonderful crafty weekend!

  1. This is my absolute favorite color combo for Christmas, red & teal (any shade will do! lol). And I love a Christmas tree like this – different. This is simply gorgeous and I love everything about it.


  2. So sweet! I love the non-traditional colors, the two tones on the sentiment, and that tree is amazing! Thanks for the inspiration!


  3. Jacinda: This is so sweet! I’ve not seen this particular die before! The color combo makes the Christmas card refreshing and to stand out for the receiver. The sentiment is a great reminder to use because whether due to distance or pandemic, we all have loved ones who we won’t get to see for Christmas-time! Great idea! Thanks for linking to MLCC! –Becca/DT
