I was a week ahead of myself in some ways, but a day behind in this week's post. The card I made last week for the "Make it wet" theme was a Christmas card and the challenge for this week is "Christmas in July". So here is another Christmas card. Please join us for the challenge. Remember that now is a great time to start building up your Christmas card supply. The challenge has returned to the old forum layout which seems a bit easier to work with.

Today's card is a small 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" card. I thought this small sized card would be good to make for a set of cards which can fit into small pizza box, along with envelopes.
I stamped my image onto white card stock and cut it to size. I used pen nibs to colour in the leaves and berries with ink. I sponged the edges. I mounted this onto patterned paper with dimensionals which I had matted onto Wisteria Wonder card. I used a technique that Dawn T had taught me. The Wisteria Wonder matted card is actually white card sponged with ink to create the coloured matted background, (I could have used wisteria wonder cardstock, but I wanted to keep the full sized piece of card for something else.)
Stamps: Easy Events from Stampin' Up
Ink: Lucky Limeade, Wisteria Wonder (from Stampin' Up), Fired brick distress ink
Patterned Paper: DSP In colours 2011-2013
Other: Glossy Accents, Ranger brush tip pen nibs
