Did you ever stop to think where Christmas in July originated? According to a quick Google search, it found its start in 1933 at an all-girls summer camp in Brevard, North Carolina. They hosted a Christmas in July celebration complete with carolers, a Christmas tree, fake snow, a gift exchange and even a visit from Santa. And it’s now morphed in to a month-long celebration with thoughts of escaping the heat!
I’m following suit and celebrating Christmas in July on my blog this month. Today, I feature Stampin’ Up!’s Snowflake Wishes stamp set and So Many Snowflake Dies. Find the stamp set on page 90 of the Annual Catalog and the dies on page 165.
I really like all of the many and varied snowflake dies included with this set. As you can see with my samples, it offers many, many different ways to use both the stamp set and the dies.
The featured card sports non-traditional Christmas colors. I used:
- Misty Moonlight for the base,
- Mint Macaron for the next layer (5 1/4 x 4),
- Polished Pink,
- Blushing Bridge (embossed with the snowflake design from the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder set),
- Misty Moonlight for the snowflake and ink colors.
This card uses even more non-traditional colors: Polished Pink. I just love the In Color Vellum to die cut the snowflakes images.
The “windows” in the Picture This Dies offer a fun way to showcase the snowflakes.
I hope you’ve enjoyed the Snowflake Wishes Card Samples for Christmas in July. Be sure to watch the video below to see how the first card is created.
