PAPER GIRLS CHALLENGE #204 - Christmas in July

While some of you may be experiencing a heat wave, the gals over at the Paper Girls Challenge Blog is already thinking about Christmas! Christmas in July is this week's challenge. Grab those new papers that are coming out (like Authentique Paper's Magical Christmas!!) and those amazing stamps and dies, and create something that is Christmas-themed. Don't want to think ahead... Scrap those pictures from last Christmas that you haven't even looked at yet!
For this card, I started with the Mama Elephant Slimline Basic die set. I love slimline cards (if you've seen the past few projects, you'll totally understand my obsession!!), and this die set is fabulous for creating easy-peasy slimline cards.

I also used the NEW Diamond Press Believe in Magic #247188 stamp and die set. I colored all of the stamped images with my Chameleon markers, then backed it all with the wonderful NEW Authentique Paper A Magical Christmas (Four). Pin It

AUTHENTIQUE PAPER: Happy 4th of July

Happy Fourth of July! I wanted to grab a few of my older papers from the Liberty collection and create something that would be both fun and functional.

The pinwheel is a five-point 3D pinwheel, that has been glued to a straw. Instead of the center that was present in the cut file, I just added a simple vintage brad. This was then glued into the inside of the star gift bag. Gluing it in the bag makes the placement of the pinwheel permanent. Hot glue works the best for this.
The front of the star gift bag is a layered front. The star is simply white cardstock that has been glued using liquid glue, and then the layers of the Liberty collection papers are layered with foam adhesive.
To top this packaging off, simply find white or white patterned tissue and add in your present. No present... This also doubles as a home decor item! Hope this inspires you, and have a great 4th of July.
Other Supplies: white cardstock, foam adhesive, Silhouette Cameo 3, cut files (#135146, #61640), tissue paper, straw, hot glue gun
