Christmas in August

Hello! :) How are you doing? I hope the temperatures are not too high where you live. We had a terrible heat wave last week, but this week it's better - we got some rain and temperatures dropped down a bit. Now it's actually possible to go outside for a walk and enjoy it.

Have you started thinking about Christmas yet? I know it still seems far away, but I know I should start working on my cards now if I want to have enough to send to my friends when the time comes. Especially with my crafting "speed". ;) This Christmas card I'm about to show you was made for one very nice lady. We decided to do a Christmas in August card swap. I was feeling like making a vintage style card, so here's the result.

This card was inspired by one of the cards on my friend's Pamellia cards. To me she's the queen of shabby chic/vintage style so when I am in the mood for making something in that style and am in need of some inspiration I hop to her blog and am always in awe of her creations.

For my card I used some papers that I has in my stash. I distressed the edges and started layering patterned paper on pieces of white cardstock. All the layers are glued on top of each other with foam pads, which gives the card some dimension.

Image is embossed with gold embossing powder from Ranger. I decorated the card with some flowers, ribbon/lace, wooden snowflakes and pearl stars. When everything was glued together I randomly sprinkled some gesso mixed with water over the card.

So much from me today. Have a beautiful day! xx
