The winners will be announced on the ASD Release Blog Hop post on July 24th 2023.

Jingle Bell Joy/Elegant Stripes/Pretty Bows/Christmas Sentiments

I quite enjoy die cutting then ink blending the die cuts to my own colour choices, which is what I did here with the Jingle Bell Joy Die Set. The only part I didn't ink blend was the top of the bells. I die cut those from silver foil cardstock. I thought these elements would make super cute gift tags. Therefore, I used the new Elegant Stripes Hot Foil Plate with silver, and then die cut the tags using the Signature Tags Die Set after hot foiling. I placed all the elements with glue but with the odd foam dot, then placed two Pretty Bows on each in bright red foil. To finish, I stamped and die cut two sentiments from the Christmas Sentiments set. Add some ribbon, and these lovelies are ready to go!

Snowflakes/Elegant Stripes/Be Merry Hot Foil

This Snowflake Die is fabulous! It has lovely detail and I immediately knew I wanted it in gold glitter cardstock. I really layered this up as it was going to be the focal point of the whole design. The Elegant Stripe Hot Foil Plate in gold gives a great backdrop without taking anything away from the snowflake. I added some silver bling, yes, silver! Do you know, gold and sliver go well together, especially on Christmas cards. Therefore, I added the silver bling to the tips of the snowflake to add that extra something, something. To finish, I added the Joy from the Be Merry Hot Foil Sentiment Set.

Hopefully I have given you some Christmas in July inspiration friends?

Now, go enjoy the hop and make sure you leave comments and love along the way for your chance to win!
