Paper Smooches Christmas in July 2018

It's been so hot here in the islands and we literally wilt without the trade winds.
I saw Paper Smooches' latest challenge and decided to join the fun
and try to cool off, too.

Christmas in July? Sounds good to me!

I ink distressed a background in warm tones and adhered it to a kraft card base.
The snow couple was stamped, colored with Copics and cut with the matching dies,
then popped up on the card. Snowflakes and the sentiment were white embossed
on the card and some snow dots were added with a gel pen on the background.

I'm beginning to feel a bit cooler now. Thanks for stopping by!

Edited to add: I'm happy to share that I was one of the winners of the challenge!


  1. well, consider my heart melted... such a darling card, Donna!

  2. cute...My sister is visiting your beautiful state ( I would be there even with all the heat you're talking about!).

  3. Donna, this is just adorable! Stay cool, my friend!

  4. Donna, this is incredibly Kawaii!!! Your soft ink-distressed background adds warmth to this lovely couple! The snowflakes, the spatters, and the white gel pen dots are small but they play a big role in the cozy winter scene. Hideko xx

  5. Aw, what a cute couple! I LOVE the colours you’ve used and the white on kraft!
