Red, White and Blue Christmas in July is the challenge for July with the Colorful Options blog. I decided to use the SimonSaysStamp Santa’s Helpers stamp set that was included in my HDSA fundraiser box for this challenge. My elf is decked out in red, white and blue and since it is July the gift is wrapped in pink paper. My sentiment from the same stamp set was stamped on glimmer white cardstock from Michaels and die cut using Spellbinder’s Majestic Circles dies. The background was also die cut from Spellbinder’s Candlewick Rectangles dies. I stamped some snowflakes in versamark ink on some light blue patterned paper from my stash. Since it was out I figured it would work with this challenge.
Lots of inspiration to choose from the inspiration board but I was drawn to the red, white and blue Santa hat to create my card.
Thanks for stopping in for a peek. I appreciate you and your time. Take care, stay cool and be safe.

💖🤍💙 this July Elf! I enjoyed reading your blog; you are very kind, thanks for your thoughtful words about our challenge. 🤗 I couldn’t resist the picture with the red, white, and blue Santa hat; so glad that it inspired you! Your layout and attention to detail on your card are remarkable! And yes, loving the pink box! Pink, being a shade of red, is a valid color this month! So happy to see it being used!! Can’t wait to see what you create next!! Cheers, Makira
