12 Kits Of Occasions {July 2014}

Christmas In July
Welcome to the July version of the 12 Kits of Occasions.
This month's hostess is Tracey.  She sent us a beautiful kit that for me was all about the beautiful papers from Webster's Pages, It's Christmas

Tracey gave us 2 for 1 with this cool tree die cut.
She included the negative piece as well as the positive and I put both to good use.
I used the positive above and the negative below as a stencil.
I added modeling paste to my card using the tree 'stencil' and before it dried I added some glitter.


This guy is so cute and with a glossy, sparkly scarf he really makes the card!

I wanted to use this stitched rectangle piece on my card, but the sentiment didn't go with the design.
I stamped my own sentiment and cut it down just large enough to cover the sentiment underneath, but small enough to allow the stitched detail to show.

I hope you enjoyed!
Next month {August} is my month to host.  My kits are already arriving at their destinations.
I will have a special guest designer as well as a GIVEAWAY that you won't want to miss.
More details later ;)
Make sure to stop by the 12 Kits Blog to see what our guest designer has created this month.
