Christmas in July?

Yes!  It's Christmas in July here in Bella land, and I have a card to share with you.
I used the Cutesy ornaments for this one, and a LOT of distress inks.  I started by heat embossing the magical background with a glitter EP onto white cardstock.  Next I inked it up with tumbled glass distress ink, I then used peacock feathers and evergreen bough on the outer edges of the panel, leaving the center light. I heat embossed the ornaments with detail silver and inked those with distress inks too. I sprayed everythign with pearl water and let it dry. I then went over all the edges with vintage photo. and covered the ornaments with a thin layer of glossy accents.  I lined the two outside edges of my base card with score tape and added glitter ritz in warm highlight.  I did the same on the sentiment strip that was heat embossed with detailed silver.  I put it all together and added some gems and cord.

That's it from me, till next time.


  1. I saw this on the Bella Blog and had to come over to see it in person. Thank you for the directions. All those details brought your card to life. TFS.

  2. Oh using the distress inks is brilliant. Gorgeous card

  3. I'm a sucker for ornaments so this card calls to me...but dang I love how you showcased them in this card. The colors and textures...are so lovely!
