 Greetings friends. Are you ready for a little Christmas in July? The Impression Obsession July Red Rubber kit has been released, and it is full of vintage Christmas images.

For my card, I was really drawn to the wreath. It was really quick and easy to color. The stamp itself has detail lines that show you where to add a little shading. I stamped the wreath in black ink using a stamp positioner. I then colored it with a variety of green prismacolor pencils. Note- I just added random squiggles of color to the wreath. If you tried to color each leaf individually, it would drive you crazy.I chose pencils that were almost chartreuse to ones that were closer to a blue spruce. Here is a close up so that you can see the various greens better:

I then colored the ribbon with two different reds, making sure to color the darker red in areas that were supposed to be shaded.

To finish the card, I used the Mini Gingham cover a card image to stamp my own background. I thought the gingham worked well with the vintage feel of the wreath. I then stamped my sentiment from the July kit onto a tag and popped up the words using some foam tape. As a last touch, I included some red adhesive pearls to look like berries.
These are the images in the July kit:


Thanks so much for stopping by!
