Creative Belli 122- Christmas in July


The Creative Belli challenge is a Christmas inspiration challenge for the next two weeks. Our inspiration piece is this beautiful Christmas china that belongs to our design team member, Karen Wallace. Thank you Karen for providing us with such lovely inspiration to create our cards and projects.
The spirit of the Belli challenges is to encourage you to use your OLD and FORGOTTEN embellishments!

I used the colors of the china as my inspiration and played around with more SVG files:
  Everything about this card- except the sentiment circles (digi image from McMahon Five Designs)- are SVG files that I cut out using my electronic cutting machine and the Make the Cut.  I imported an octogen shape and joined it to make it into a card (that folds). Then, I imported a scalloped octogen for my flower background. The flower SVG is from McMahon Five Designs and is available NOW as a FREE digital image AND as a FREE SVG file.  This flower works beautifully as a tropical flower OR as a Poinsettia, don't you think?
The Papers I used are: Incandescent  in Rosso and Candido and Mica in the gold. The Green paper is from my stash : )

Here is a close-up of the card so you can see the shimmer better.:


Be sure to stop by the other Belli Girls blogs to see what they made for you today....you will find lots of awesome inspiration!!! If you upload a card to Splitcoast, PCP, Stamp TV or another online gallery be sure to add CBC122 in the keywords section.
