Whimsical Designs "Christmas In July" Challenge


It's hard to think about Christmas when it is 105° outside! But...think cold because this week our challenge over at Whimsical Designs is "Christmas In July". Create a Christmas card or project.

Our sponsor for this weeks challenge is The Robins Nest, with a chance to win a Christmas package worth $25!!!



For my project I decided to use one of the new 3D ledge village cuts from Silhouette Studio! I used paper from Authentique to make my cuts. I decorated the tree and the house with stickers by Karen Foster. I used a little holly button for the door, I couldn't find a wreath small enough in my stash. I attached a Santa sticker to the front of the fence and a sign to the back. The sign arrows are also a Silhouette Studio cut file. The stamps are from Stephanie's Snow Much Fun!


I think it all makes a darling Christmas decoration for your ledge!!!!


Supplies used: patterned papers - Foundations Bi-Fold Solid Paper, Yearning and Curiosity all from the Wonder collection by Authentique; Silhoutte Studio cut files; stickers - Karen Foster and Sandylion Essentials; button - my stash; star - Jolee's; stamps - Snow Much Fun by Whimsical Designs; ink - Tuxedo Black by Memento

Now head on over to Whimsical Designs to feast your eyes on the fabulous design teams projects and then join us in this weeks fun challenge!!

Fun and colorful ledge creation. It will be a good Christmas decoration for any place where there is a flat surface and it will brighten any room for the holiday.
