Christmas in August with MMM # 181

Welcome to the Make My Monday challenge, #181.  Our host for this challenge, Meg, chose Christmas in August for the theme of this two-week challenge.   When you are finished here, I hope you will visit the challenge blog to see what the rest of the design team members created.  Then, I hope you’ll be inspired to play along with our challenge!

Here’s my Christmas in August card:


Measurements and Such:


  • The Evening Evergreen base measures 8-1/2 inches by 5-1/5 inches, scored at 4-1/4 inches.
  • This gorgeous background specialty DSP (designer series paper) measures 4-1/8 by 5-3/8 inches.
  • I trimmed a piece of Evening Evergreen DSP to 6 inches by 2-1/2 inches for the envelope flap. Then, I punched 1-inch circle from a piece of Soft Succulent DSP for the envelope seal.
  • I cropped a piece of Evening Evergreen using a die from the Deckled Rectangle set. Then, I ran it through my cut and emboss machine using the pine needles Wintery 3D embossing folder.
  • Then, I used a blending brush and my Soft Succulent ink pad to lightly highlight the pine needles. I finished this panel by splattering clear Wink of Stella on it. Then, I very carefully used multipurpose liquid glue to adhere the wonderful snowflake to the front of the panel, after which I wrapped a length of Soft Succulent ribbon and tied it in a bow.
  • Next, I stamped the sentiment in VersaMark on Evening Evergreen cardstock, and added silver embossing powder. After using my heat tool to set the embossing powder, I cropped the sentiment using the banner die from the Stylish Shapes die set. Finally, I outlined it using the clear Wink of Stella brush to give it sparkle and added dimensionals underneath it..
  • Then, I adhered the DSP and the Evening Evergreen panel using multipurpose liquid glue. After adding the popped up sentiment, I placed five rhinestone gems randomly on the front.
  • I stamped the inside sentiment in Evening Evergreen ink on a piece of white cardstock that measures 4 by 5-1/4 inches. After adhering the inside panel, I’d completed this coordinated card, envelope, and envelope seal set.
