HIMCR 361 scraps theme with Christmas in July twist

2nd Saturdays of the month at HIMCR are about using your scraps, thus the twist for July is to have Christmas included in your paper-crafted creation.

Here is what I made for the DT inspirations for #361:

This photo shown below is proof that papers on the right have been used previously, so my scraps. As seen above, the spring green glitter paper wasn't used. Red cardstock was folded for the card base. The antique wallpaper looking paper (The Paper Studio) was used for sentiment backing for both the cover and inside panels. The khaki green and dark red prints are old stock as is the 6" x 6" cardstock.

The fabulous winter deer featured Christmas card is for challenge #361's Design Team inspirations using the prize sponsor's image(s) at HIMCR. Use the blog post link for seeing the rest of the DT cards, details for this challenge and participating, guidelines, past sponsors, archived posts, and more.

Thanks, MHK Designs, for the majestic Holiday Deer image set! MHK Designs is #361's DT provider of images plus the prize sponsor for a selected winner from the pool of anticipated participant's linked creations:

As soon as I saw this very impressive deer image at MHK Designs, I knew I wanted to select this to use for this Saturday. Thanks again, MHK Designs, for allowing us to pick out what we wanted to use from your marvelous digital images!!

Until another challenge or occasion/need to craft, from the USA heartland, Becca S
