SHC - Christmas in July Continued

... Morning! I'm here with my Seven Hills Craft blog post and I'm continuing with my Christmas in July kick. However, this week's card has a much cleaner, simpler look than last week's card.

Stamps: Colorado Craft Company - Holiday Wishes, Big & Bold Nordic Snowflakes
Inks: Gina K - Powder Blue, Sea Glass, Ocean Mist; Versafine Clair - Nocturne
Accessories: White Card; Gina K Card - Sea Glass; Lawn Fawn Stencils - Lots of Stars Background Layering Stencils

I'm submitting this to a couple of challenges. The layout is based on the sketch from the current challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches - CASC&S#480. I'm also playing along with Perfectly CAS - PCAS#29 where the theme is Festive and to use a third or less of the card front.

This was so quick and easy to make. I simply masked off a triangle on the side of a note card and then used the layering stencils to fill the area with pale blue and light aqua stars, keeping them slightly darker at the edge of the card and fading to the point of the triangle. I finished the front by adding a simple, elegant greeting. Inside the card, I cut a mat layer of pale aqua card and on the white panel I stamped a lovely greeting and added a trio of pretty snowflakes.

This was fun to make and so, so easy. I love the stars layering stencils and plan to use them again on a few more Christmas cards. That's it from me today. See you all again soon.
