Blue Christmas in July

There have been so many Christmas in July cards posted that I thought I would play along. This is a card that a made a while ago but hadn’t posted yet. The photo doesn’t really do it justice it is so pretty and sparkly in real life.

The great thing about this card is that it uses very few products and is pretty easy with a lot of wow. For cardstock I only used white card stock, a little bit of Island Indigo cardstock both from Stampin’ Up!, and a acetate.

1- cut the card base (size in photo ⬆️)

2- cut panel (sizes in photo ⬆️)

3- die cut 2 of the swirls backgrounds from the Karen Burniston Pattern Plate Swirls

4- trim the swirls as shown

5- The swirls should be the same size as the panel

6- Cut the asset to the same size as the pane

7- carefully glue the swirl pieces to the acetate. I did use liquid glue very sparingly you don’t want it glooping through the sides

8- I cut a frame to fit the panel it is a 1/4” frame.

9- adhere the frame over this swirl acetate piece

10- on the backside of this piece add thin foam strip around the perimeter of the frame. Make sure the corners meet each other we don’t want any glitter leakage.

11- cut some of the foam strip into little pieces and strategically place them behind the swirls

12- grab a few different glitters, believe it or not I found these at the dollar store.

13- add the glitter to the inside of the swirly panel

14- add the white panel to the adhesive on the swirly panel to close in all the glitter

15- add a completed panel to the front of the card

16- die cut some snowflakes and merry Christmas from white and silver mirror cardstock

17-I adhered the silver mirror cardstock to the White cardstock slightly offset

18- add merry Christmas to the card

19- add snowflakes to the card

20- stamp the message on white card stock, die cut that piece and an Island Indigo piece slightly bigger

21- adhere them together and add them to the card

22- they are hard to see but I added a few clear bubbles to the front of the card
