DT Deni Christmas in July with Candy

Good Morning Lovely Followers,

DT Deni here with a card share for you. I thought i'd join in on the Christmas in July creations with one of my own.. I went through my last box of goodies I received from Auzz Trinklets N Krafts and found this cute little stamp from CC Designs & Pollycraft called "Candy" isn't she just the sweetest. I purchased her out of season so have not yet had a chance to use her hence why she was still in the box.

I thought i'd break her out and have a play. I'm not normally one for leaving things to the last minute but I did with this card. I wasn't quite sure what i was planning on creating. I used to always keep a little square of paper in front of me whilst designing to try and keep track of all the products used but I haven't been doing it so much lately so I wanted to make something fresh that I could keep a list for you guys.

So here is the completed card I have created today


I first cut the MFT Stitched Mini Scallop Circle using my Sizzix Big Shot. I then stamped the image with my Misti Stamping Tool using Memento Tuxedo Black on the circle I cut out of Mondi Color Copy cardstock.

I coloured the image using Copic Markers, a list of those will be below. 

Once the image was all coloured I decided to used my "Snow Writer" pen (which is also available through Auzz Trinklets) and coated her hat, pom pom and the base of her skirt. I wasn't patient enough to wait for it to dry so I carefully heated it from underneath until it puffed up. I then allowed it to cool and carefully started assembling the card.

I found the soft papers from a little paper pad that came free with a card making magazine i purchased quite a while ago. I backed them using American crafts Cardstock and Canson White Cardstock. I added some crochet twine to the top layer. All this was attached using my Scotch ATG. 


I found some American Crafts glitter cardstock scraps left on my desk from another project so I decided to create a white Christmas tree which I have never personally had so was a little excited. I used the "Build A Christmas Tree" Die from La La Land Crafts. 


I still had a little bit of the glitter cardstock left so decided to cut some stars from the La La Land "Filligree Stars" die. I ran it through twice just to get the finer little cuts out of the stars but they actually came out quite easily. 


Once I had all these little bits cut it still looked like it was missing something so i found the little enamel dots from W Plus 9 and added some of the smallest ones on. Lucky last my card needed a sentiment. I remembered i had purchased this "Jolly Christmas" stamp set from CC Designs a while ago and hadn't used it yet, the candy sentiment was perfect. I stamped it on Mondi Color Copy using Memento Tuxedo Black and cut it out using MFT Stitched banner die.

I then attached all the layers onto a pre-made cardbase from Twiddleybitz.

A full list of products and Copic Markers Used will be available below.
