Christmas in July

Hello!  July is a good time to make Christmas cards in order to have a stash for the holiday.   I made this card using a technique of thumping which is to ink a stamp with a marker and then add more color to by tapping a darker colored marker over the stamp.  I used GKD stamps from Pressed Flowers (flower and stem) and Joyful Holidays(Sentiment) with Memento Markers I inked the Poinsettia with Lady Bug and then thumped on  Rhubarb Stalk.  The stems were inked with Bamboo Leaves and thumped with Cottage Ivy. I use GKD dies to cut out the images and arranged on a embossed mat of GKD Grass Green CS. Stamped the sentiment with Hero Arts white ink and heat embossed with EP. Added a bit of gold embossing to center of flowers.
