Christmas In July #Cards4Love

Merry Christmas In July!!!!

Used my favorite Cricut cartridge Teddy Bear Parade and cut out the cute Teddy elf. I inked it all up and cut a few scraps to make a card base. 

Here is the finished Teddy Elf  I add pearls to his shoes and hat and also highlight to his nose and eyes. 

Stamped our Merry Christmas on Scraps the  stamp is from Cosmo Cricket's-Jolly Days Collection. 
I cut it out then backed it on a banner I made by cutting triangles out of the edges.  

In th middle of posting my blog half my pictures vanished so here is the finished card... I added washi tape to the edges of the red layer. slapped some fun washi on the bottom to ground the Teddy. I popped everything up on dimensional tape. To add the finishing touches I scattered coordinating sequins. I really hope this makes someones Christmas alot better...
