Card - Christmas In July

Created for the Cheery Lynn Challenge where the theme is Christmas in July.  The background was created on glossy cardstock by stamping the Holly stamp with Versamark, then placing the cardstock facedown onto Distress ink that had been placed onto a craft sheet and spritzed with water.  Additional ink was sponged onto the card, then it was spritzed again with water before being stamped a different Holly Stamp in Distress Ink, and then with a snow effect texture stamp.

Cardstock - Southfield Ivory Linen; Bazzill Canvas Texture: Maraschino; Astralux Glossy White
Cheery Lynn Dies - Holly Flourish, Mini Pearl Coved Rectangle (for the sentiment label)
Ink - Distress Frayed Burlap; Versamark
Digital Collage Sheet - Etsy
Stamps - Tapestry (Holly); DieNamics (Sentiment), Stampin' Up (Snow Texture)
Flowers - Recollections
Liquid Pearls - White, gold
Stickles - Stardust
