CASE-ing Christmas: Christmas in July Blog Hop!


Hi, friends!  Welcome to the CASE-ing Christmas "CHRISTMAS IN JULY" blog hop!  There will be prizes from fabulous sponsors, and the challenge will be a bit different from what we usually do, but we think you'll like it!  You should have arrived here from The CASE-ing Christmas blog.  Make sure to complete the whole hop for the most chances to win a prize from our sponsors!

Our sponsors are~

I've made a few cards using different sponsor products, and I'll be sharing them throughout the 2 weeks of the hop.  Up first, my card using a darling image by All Dressed Up!  I CASEd THIS CARD and used the square shape, glitter bling, and strip across the center as my inspiration. Take a peek...


The image I used is called Christmas Post.  I water colored it before adding it to my card.  A white enamel star was added for more shine, and I fussy cut out the sign from a second print out to pop up for more dimension.


I added some ribbon, glitter paper, and rhinestones to the base of the card to finish it off.  I think this is super darling--all thanks to the image from All Dressed Up!  What do you think?  I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!


That's all for me today, friends!  Thank you SO MUCH for stopping by to take a peek at my card!  I'll be back every odd day with another card featuring sponsor images for the CASE-ing Christmas hop--please do come and join the fun!  Don't forget to check out the inspiration from the other gals, too!

Here's the hop list for you to follow~

Your next stop is Asha, so get to hopping!  Afterwards, come back and link up with us.  We cannot WAIT to see what you create for us this month!  HUGS and Merry stamping, friends! :)

Adorable image and card and I really like how you arranged the ribbon. I've got loads of ribbon but tend to forget to add some before everything is stuck to my card... Love the concept of this challenge and I definitely plan to join in,
