Christmas In July – Gift Wrapped [The Spot #120]

Published by under cards | Jul 21 2020

Yay! My favourite projects to make are Christmas projects and I’m soooo excited to share my first Christmas card of the year.

I don’t know about you, but I’m kind of wishing we could just fast forward the rest of 2020 and turn up around Christmas. What a crazy year this has been.

Anyway, back to our Christmas in July challenge, which just happens to be the theme for this week’s The Spot Creative Challenge. With a brand new Mini Catalogue launching early next month, you’ll be seeing quite a few sneak peeks of upcoming products from the design team.

I chose a new product bundle (avail from Aug 4th 2020) called the Gift Wrapped bundle. It includes the Gift Wrapped stamp set and coordinating Gift Bow Builder punch. Hint: Watch the video below to see these items up close.

This is a Z-fold card, and also features the Dainty Diamonds embossing folder and the amazing Rainbow Glimmer Paper (which I’m somewhat obsessed with).

A coordinating insert of Granny Apple Green cardstock is on the inside.

Here’s a quick 4 minute video that shows you how this card was made. Enjoy!

Each week our Design Team of international creatives share projects based on a new challenge. It could be a theme, a technique, a sketch layout or – as it is in this week – a colour challenge.

Each Tuesday at 9pm (Syd/Mel time) you’ll see a new challenge post on the challenge website. You can play along, and if you want you can even enter your card in the weekly challenge by uploading your project (and you don’t even need a blog!).
A winner will be chosen each week.

Happy stamping,
