Christmas in July CTMH Cards

Art Philosophy Christmas Cards
Christmas In July

Used The Art Philosophy Cartridge for this first card.

Here is a close up of the stamping. I used the Music Notes Background Stamp from the Universal Backgrounds Stamp Set. I stamped the red paper with cranberry ink to give it a soft, subtle, tone on tone look. I then used the “floral Flourish” Background Stamp from the Diverse Backgrounds Stamp set to stamp the scalloped frame in black. I had cut the frame out in plain parchment (cream) colored cardstock. I also cut the ornament out and used the Coordinating Stamp from the Art Philosophy Bundle to stamp the beautiful bird n’ flourish image with more Cranberry Ink. Lastly, I added a Bow with the Color Ready Seam Binding Ribbon and some flat back pearls.

For this second card, Melin used the PCW Ornament Round Cut file. I created this cut file in my Pazzles Inspiration Software and cut it out with my Pazzles Inspiration.

The decorative part of the ornament was cut in the same parchment colored cardstock as the scalloped frame and base of the ornament. I then inked it with a sponge and my Cranberry Ink.
I then adhered it to the base and then took my Gold Lame smooch and colored in a few of the circles and the top.
put it together
I stamped the red paper with the sheet music stamp that is in the Universal Backgrounds set. I stamped it with Cranberry Ink as I wanted it to be a subtle background, a tone on tone look.

With this card you can see I also used the “vintagey text” stamp from this same stamp set on the plain scalloped frame. I then finished it by adding some faux stitching around the parchment mat.
