Magical Crafts Challenge #19

Good Morning Everyone, Sunday morning and time for another brilliant new challenge over at Magical Crafts Challenge blog. The challenge for the next two weeks is:

Christmas in July 

So, let's get started early and don't leave all of the Christmas crafting until last minute, like I normally do.  I'm usually still making cards on Christmas Eve, that's really bad and I know it!  I'm sure that I'm not alone though.

Remember, Magical Crafts is a multi craft blog so it does not necessarily have to be a card. It could be a scrapbook page, a gift or anything else, as long as you've crafted it. I decided to make a door hanger with this super cute image Penny with Presents by Stampin' Dragon from Stitchy Bear Stamps (who incidentally have a July sale on right now!)

For this challenge we are being sponsored by the lovely Stitchy Bear Stamps and the Magical Crafts design team were lucky enough to have a few of their Christmas images to play with.  Why not pop over to their shop and have a browse through their brilliant digi images?

I made a blank door hanger by taking a rectangle of strong card and rounding the corners with a punch.  I then covered with the design paper and made a hole with a circular spellbinders die.  I used a scallop circle die with a plain circle die to make the border for the handle hole. 

Here's what I've used:

Image - Penny with Presents by Stampin'Dragon, Stitchy Bear Stamps, coloured with Pro Markers
Paper and card - all from Die Cuts with a View
Lots of cosmic shimmer glue
Leaf punches - Woodware
Flowers from Stash and card candy dots

I am going to enter this into the following challenges:
Craftalicious - Cute
The Creative Cottage - No cards allowed
Corrosive Challenge blog - Christmas

So, I can't wait to see what you make for our challenge and don't forget to have a look at the other DT blogs - they've come up with some great ideas for this challenge!

Thanks for stopping by,
