Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Christmas in July Blog Hop

Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is celebrating Christmas in July!   I'm so glad you could join us for some inspiration and for a jump start on your 2012 holiday cards!  I'm going to showcase a fun set called Cozy Friends.

This cute little polar is all bundled up in a hat and scarf so I thought the card needed some die-cut snowflakes and an  icicle border!  This is one of my favorite color combinations and I tried to leave a bit of white space for the look of a an artic background!
Supplies include:
Marianne Design Snowflake dies
MFT Icicle border Die-namic
SU Baja Blue seam binding
SU Real Red ink
Lilybee Designs Double Dutch, Handmade dp
SU Real Red cardstock
Both of the animal images in this set are easy to color and cut out - 
here's one I made using the sweet penguin.

The color combo is a bit retro so I used copics and distress inks to soften the stark white on the image and disress inks to sponge the edges of the dp.  I made a tag for the sentiment and attached it using twine. 
Supplies include:
Cosmo Cricket Baby Jane dp
SU Taken with Teal cardstock
Sewing machine
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Ranger Distress Scattered Straw

I love all the dimension in your polar bear card, with the die cuts and the stacked bows and those darling little jingle bells. The penguin card's antiqued color scheme really fits the "warm" theme of the sentiment. Excellence times two! :)
