Canada Inks Up! Blog Hop - Christmas in July

Time for another Canada Inks Up! Team Blog Hop.  This month we are sharing "Christmas in July" projects. My card features the Stampin' Up! Joyful Flurry Bundle.

  4. Adhere to card base.
  5. Wrap ribbon around card base and tie a bow on right hand side.
  6. Stamp 3 snowflakes on Pool Party cardstock using Versamark ink.
  7. Sprinkle with White Embossing Powder and heat to melt.
  8. Cut snowflakes out using Dies
  9. Adhere snowflakes to card base using Dimensionals.
  10. Stamp sentiment on Pool Party cardstock using Versamark ink.
  11. Sprinkle with White Embossing Powder and heat to melt.
