Christmas in July

  Happy Wednesday!  

We've got another challenge over at Crafty Gals Corner.  Our theme this month is

Christmas in July.  


Beccy's Place is our sponsor.

Prize ~  $10 Gift Certificate

These last few months for me has been a bit crazy.  My husband is having more health problems and is scheduled for surgery this week.  Which means I haven't been in my craft room near enough.  For me and my challenge project, I had to take a different path of creation.   I find the tangible part of the creative process therapeutic.   And right now, I need that more than anything.  But I do not have the time to sit and play with paper and crafting supplies.   

Normally, I would color images with Copics.  But being in and out of doctors' offices and driving 2.5 hours, one way, for appointments, I can't focus on that type of coloring.  So I uploaded Beccy's Nutcracker image on my iPad and used Procreate to color it while sitting different places.

Once I colored the image to my liking, I exported it to my computer.  I used my Silhouette Software to create the card.  

I printed the cards, two per sheet, onto PTI Stampers Select cardstock.


The cards are one layer, so I added Stickles to part of the image to give it a bit of interest.  

I added the sentiment from the digital stamp set and the nutcracker, in a more transparent print, to the inside of the card.  

Thanks for stopping by.  

Be sure to join us for the challenge.
