Christmas in July by Jil Lebel

Hello Ai fans!

I was looking at my calendar and I realized that it was almost the end of July and I haven't made any Christmas cards yet! I like to get a head start on the holidays so I had to remedy that fast!  I used the Christmas Wreath Set 4791 along with the Christmas Wonder Set 4936 to make a peek-a-boo card.

I started by stamping the wreath and four of the holly images from the Christmas Wreath Set 4791 onto Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth paper. I colored them with Copic markers. I cut the wreath with the dies that are included in the set. I stamped, colored and fussy cut the holly leaves. I also stamped, colored and fussy cut the animals from  the Christmas Wonder Set 4936.  All colors are listed at the end of the post.

 I attached the layer to the front of my card and used the inner wreath die cut to cut a hole through the center of the card.   I then foam mounted the wreath to the front of the card. I attached another layer of patterned paper to the inside of the card as well as a piece of white paper with the greeting along the top.  I positioned and attached the caroling animals so they could be seen through the front of the card.

Copic colors used :
Wreath - YG61, YG63, YG67
Berries - R81, R83, R85
Dog - E31, E33, E35, R20
Cat - W1, W3, W3,  Y23, Y26, YR24, R20
Hats - R35, R39, R89
Striped Scarf- C3, C1, C00, R35, R39, R89
Yellow Scarf - Y13, Y15, Y17
Green Scarf - YG61, YG63, YG67
