Christmas in July!

I haven't posted for so long, and now two cards in one day. Woohoe!

At the Winter Wonderland blog there's the challenge of using punches. I have this amazing Christmas presents punch from Martha Stewart so I knew that this was the ideal punch for this occasion.

I took a stamp that I coloured ages ago. It's with a specifique technique, using embossing powder and your heat tool for three times and then you can crack your image up, just like it's glazing. Very pretty. Me like.

Today it is finally raining here. After our 35°C from yesterday, it really is a good thing. Finally some cold winds around here! So it is the perfect opportunity to get some other Christmas cards made, so for me... Christmas in July :)

I distressed the corners of my papers and used some amazing charms from Whiff of joy to top it off. I didn't think it needed much more decoration, as the card itself looks busy enough.

So in total I used THREE punches. Can you find them all??

Card recipe:
Stamp ~ Whiff of joy
Papers ~ Some scraps I had left, which includes: The Latte Stack and the Taj Mahal Stack and some cardstock
Charms ~ Whiff of joy
Extras ~ Ribbon and stars, clear embossing powder and my heat tool
