WT226 -- Christmas in July

Hello everyone~
I made this card for SCS Way To Use It challenge 226 (WT226). The challenge was to make Christmas card(s) -- Christmal in July. It's close to 98 degree outside where I live, even it's 6:00 pm ... So, it's actually better staying inside and stamping :)
I colored the image from Whiff of Joy with Copics. I trimmed the flourishes and the word with scissors and xacto knife....yes, it was pain in the neck. Is it worth to do for making the card more interesting? ...Yes! Do I want to do it again?....Not right now, lol!

このカードは、SCSのWay To Use Itチャレンジ226(WT226)で作ったものです。チャレンジは、7月のクリスマス -- クリスマスカードを作るです。私が住んでいる所の外の気温は、夕方6時でも摂氏37度。。。ということで、家の中でスタンプをしている方が反っていいのかもしれません(笑)
Whiff of Joyのスタンプイメージは、コピックで色を付けました。フローリッシュと言葉は、鋏とカッターを使って、チマチマと切っています。結構細かい作業で、時間がかかったこと。。。でも、カードが素敵に仕上がったと思います。でも、きっと同じ作業は、当分しないだろうな(笑)

Stamps: Angel (Whiff Of Joy), Fancy Flourishes, Snowflake Serenade (PTI)
Paper: real red, old olive, Ski Slope dp (SU), white cardstock (PTI)
Ink: Memento tuxedo black, VersaMagic sea breeze (Tsukineko), old olive (SU), Copic markers
Accessories: brads (SU), Stickles (Ranger)

Tools: Nestabilities (Spellbinders), piercing tool

Thank you for stopping by today. Have a wonderful weekend!

Maki, I was just getting ready to say that card took my breath away, and I see that is what the previous person said. The detail in this card is fantastic. Just when I think you can not do better that the one before, you surprise me. I am so proud of you.. Nana
