4 Days of Christmas Day 3

Welcome to the Christmas in July blog hop. Thank you for joining us to celebrate our Christ's birth. I love all things about Christmas and start planning Christmas as soon as the tree comes down. 

If you have arrived from Anita's Blog you are in the right place. If you just happened upon this hop you can start from the beginning at Lisa's Blog. Make sure you come back each day to see what cool new projects we've made.

For my project I decided to get a jump start on my Christmas Cards. I made a shape card using my Nestabilites dies. 

I started with an A2 size card base and lined it up with my larges die, making sure that my fold line was below the edge of the die. To cover the flat edge I just cut the shape a second time on a piece of white card stock and adhered it to the card base. 

 I ran the next smaller die through with red card stock to create a mat layer. 

Using the next smaller dies I cut the next layers one using patterned paper and the other using white card stock. I then stamped my images using Stazon ink and adhered them together.

I repeated the previous step for the inside of the card. 

       And here is my finished card.

Thanks for stopping by make sure you hop on over to Laura's Blog to see what she's created for you.
