MTTC Blog challenge no 436 Christmas in July theme

Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! My body and brain were overloaded with LOTS to do all day long on the day of deadline with a card to make. I'm already on a specific Christmas card making challenge blog, so I decided to give myself the prompt of an all green card.

Dumpster diving was next. Kidding! Stash treasure hunt--yes! I've got 4 shoe box size containers inside the house currently. I've got more Christmas and winter season supplies out in the garage; probably 2 or 3 boxes I believe. It was so difficult to find green-only Christmas products. If I would allowed green and white...lots more options. Extremely difficult but I kept it to all green. Base card was made with solid green cardstock 5" x 7". And then 3 scraps with the center one coming from a Christmas paper pad collection.

Accents are from various suppliers such as Webster Pages for alpha stickers, Pen + Gear for washi tape, and Bo Bunny for the green flower die-cut.

green glitter paint pen was applied to the center of the flower along with the accenting on the petals

and the flower is raised off the background paper scrap with a round adhesive foam dot.

Remember: you can do anything Christmas for your project, too; and it doesn't need to be a card either. Check the MTTC posting for details but I'm pretty sure you could make a tag, a Christmas party invite, a Christmas treat bag topper, a Christmas theme candy bar wrapper, etc.
