Christmas in July with Bugaboo day 2

Today’s theme is to use a sketch.

Here is my take on it.


Materials used:
Bugaboo Stamps – Christmas Ornaments
A4 snowflake embossing folder
X-cut border die
X-cut scallop edged circle
circle dies
white snowflake ribbon
silver ribbon
silver mirri card
Christmas designer paper
wooden greeting stamp
black archival ink
15cm square card blank
X-Press It card
Copic pens
gel pens
white paint pen

The ornament stamp is printed onto X-Press It card and coloured with the Copics and gel pens. Part of the image has been cut with a circle die then matted onto silver mirri card also cut with a circle die. This is then layered onto a piece of designer paper cut with a scallop edged circle die.

The card blank has been embossed in the folder then a piece of designer paper cut with the border die and mounted onto silver miri card has been added at the top and a thin strip of silver mirri card added to the bottom. A shor length of silver ribbon has been caught in behind the top border and attached to the back of the matted image.

A length of white snowflake ribbon is added in the middle of the border die cut and a small silver ribbon bow added to the top of the matted image. The image is left to dangle freely on the ribbon.

Finally the greeting is stamped at the bottom of the card with black ink.

Thankd for dropping in. Take care.


I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
