Christmas in July! Timeless Tuesday 230

Hi all!

It's another Tuesday and that means another Timeless Tuesday Challenge! This weeks hostess is Katie and her challenge to you is Christmas in July! That's right... get those holiday stamp sets out and share your creations! But there is a catch! Your card must be semi-flat with no big, lumpy bows for easy mailing!

My creation this week was done using a very retired set called Peace.  It is a favorite of mine, but this challenge made me realize that it was time for some new favorites! :)  I made this card in the non-traditional sense with the colors I chose and kept it CAS.  This image really speaks alone and deserves to have its own spotlight.

I used  Color Made Easy in Emerald Coast for my cardstock color choice accented with some classic black cardstock.  The image was stamped directly onto the cardstock first stamped into Versamark ink and then with Black Momento.  I then used some EP in clear silver glitter before heating it with the heat gun for some sparkle.  Here is a closer look of the embossing.

Since this challenge was to keep it semi-flat, I did not pop up any of my layers and used some Color Made Easy black seam binding ribbon accented with some silver string. This will fit nicely in an envelope without too much bulk.  I completed the look with a few single rhinestones placed throughout.  The inside is stamped with the sentiment of : "let there be peace on earth."

Thanks for stopping by and we hope you play along! Be sure to check out the other fabulous creations from the Timeless Tuesday Team.
