Christmas in July

This week at Stamp Something the challenge is Christmas in July, sponsored by FireCracker Designs. I was sent an adorable penguin image to work with. Since the 4th of July holiday is this weekend, I decided to go with a red, white & blue color scheme. I dry embossed my background using a snowflake texture plate by Fiskars and my Big Shot. I mixed a little Dazzling Diamonds with some Crystal Effects and coated the snowballs and added a dot in the center of each snowflake on the red layer for some real sparkle.

The Merry Christmas tag was done using the new SU! set Teeny Tiny Wishes layered using the Word Window & Large Oval punches along with one of the label die cuts from the Lots of Tags Sizzlets. It's tied onto the ribbon using silver cording.

Hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend...and don't forget to go Stamp Something Christmas!
