Bugaboo Christmas in July Day 5

Time to get funny for today’s challenge.


Materials used: 
Bugaboo Stamps
– Glass of Wine a Day 
Bugaboo Stamps – Frosty Digi Papers
Bearly Mine – Selection of Christmas Digi Papers (no longer trading)
X-Press It card
printer card
Scalloped edged rectangle and oval dies
Christmas tree shape clip art
stick on gems

The lady and glass are printed onto X-Press It card and coloured with Copics then cut out.

I used a simple layered tree clipart image printed onto four papers from the Bugaboo Frosty set to make up the tree. The middle and top sections are cut out and attached to the layer underneath with gel glue to give a 3d effect.T

The matts are cut with the dies from different papers from Bearly Mine. I chose colours that went with the lady’s clothes and the green of the tree.

The sentiment is typed on the computer and printed out.

Once all the layers had been stuck down I used some small self-adhesive gems to decorate the tree.

A quick check that I have included all the required elements and the job is finished.

Thank you for taking the time to visit. Take care.

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.
