Hi there 🙂 It’s hard to believe that July is drawing to a close soon!! At least I’ve managed to get a few Christmas in July cards done, although not nearly as many as I wanted to! I used an adorable image from Mo’s Digital Pencil for this card. I colored up Singing Elf Flynn with my Copics, then fussy cut him out.
I wanted to use a musical theme with this card, so dug around and found a piece of a page from an old book of music. I trimmed it into shape with a slimline die, then took a closer look at the words…lol….not Christmas! Well, being stubborn, and never wanting to throw things out, I got out some of my seldomly used sprays and gave the piece a few quick squirts to disguise the words. I went through my scrap drawer, and discovered 2 things. 1. I had no scraps of blue to match the image. 2. I have tons and tons of white scraps from trimming the card bases I make!! I took a handful of these white scraps, and cut out the sentiment and a bunch of snowflakes. I then colored the shadow part of the sentiment with one of the same markers that I used on the image…..tada! perfect match 🙂 I was laying things out, and the words were still bugging me (tbh, they still are, but oh well). I found a small snowflake stamp, and stamped and embossed the background in some random places, to disguise the words even more. I glued down little Flynn, then positioned the sentiment and die cut snowflakes. A teeny bit of sparkle on the snowflakes and a blue mat (colored with Copics) finish this card off.
I’d like to enter this in the following:

What a lovely card this is! I can’t make out the music properly – basically I only played on the linoleum as a child – but it’s really stunning. What a delightful image and so beauti fully coloure – love how you matched all the shades/colours as well! Good thinking.
Such a cute image by Mo and you’ve made a gorgeous card.
Thanks for coming to play in the Snippets Playground! Please come and taste a few cocktails up in the Treehouse later! xxx
That little elf is adorable. You have created a very nice home among the music and snowflakes for him. Thank you for linking up with us over at Crafty Gals Corner Challenge. Best of luck, DT~Jana Forrest
