Christmas in July 2020 Hop

Thanks for hopping along with us for our first 
Build Your Stash  Holiday Hop!!! 
I am super excited to be a part of this new group for those of you that make holiday cards all year round! 
I, unfortunately do not start may Christmas cards until September.
Well, last year I got so behind, that I could only send a few, because I did not get a chance to "make" Christmas cards. No one I send to wants a bought box card anymore. 
Shame on me for setting their Christmas card expectations so high
All that being said, I am thrilled to break out all my Christmas stamps, and start getting reacquainted with them again, since I missed them last year...and what did I do?? I went and took advantage of the sale over at Jaded Blossom! 
Check out this super sweet coffee shop from their Christmas Village collection
For this card I started with a white card base
Then I die cut a white panel using 
(gorgeous cover plate, right?)
 I stamped the image onto white, Copic friendly card stock
and colored it up in less than an hour, and fussy cut it out...
then I was stumped...
Adding the now colored image to the card front, it seemed too small, so I added a stitched snowbank behind it...still needing something, I figured it has to be something to help it pop. 
I ended up adding 2 clouds I cut out from one of the cloud dies I have. 
It didn't have to pop effect I wanted, but I like how it looks.
I added some clear sequins, and tied it all up with a red bakers twine bow.
I sure hope you are having fun hopping along with us...
