Christmas in August Card 3 – Merry Christmas

Pool Party and Island Indigo don’t exactly evoke images of the holidays in my mind (especially being from Wisconsin).  But those are exactly the colors used on this card.  My color inspiration came from the Winter Frost Specialty DSP.  This paper pack comes with 12 sheets of 12 x 12 paper, including 2 sheets that include silver foil. 
My fabulous Stampin’ Up upline Dawn Olchefske introduced me to the Starburst technique used on this card.  I stamped the ornament using Versamark ink and then heat embossed it using Silver Embossing Powder.  There is a rhinestone accent in the center of the ornament.


I hope you have enjoyed these holiday cards.
