Christmas in July Week - Day Three: Snow Angel Card

Happy Friday! Welcome to Day Three of Christmas in July! No video today, but I do have a super cute card to share with you.

I am in love with this stamp set! It has the cutest images ever! It's called Wonderful Winterland, and features super cute kids doing all sorts of wintertime activities. (The sentiment is from For the Birds.) I also used a few of the patterns from the Snow Festival DSP pack to paper piece the diagonal stripe background - I love the color combination in this paper!

I colored the stamped image with a blender pen. I took the color combination straight from the DSP. It's a totally fool-proof way to choose colors for a card project. Even if I'm not actually using the paper on the project, I'll often pull color palettes from DSP collections.

OK, super quick, one more thing to share with you. This card is based on a sketch from the submission call for Paper Crafts magazine's Jan./Feb. 2013 issue. I didn't find out about it in time to actually submit (wish I had!) but I thought the sketch was really fun and creative. As you can see, I changed up the sketch quite a bit, which is why I wanted to show you the original sketch. Sketches are a great source of inspiration, but don't forget you can switch things up!
Thanks for stopping by today. Come on back tomorrow for another Christmas in July project!

Happy Stampin'!
