Summer Christmas


One of my fave Christmas stamps because it really reflects our summer celebrations and this is when we take our summer holidays.  The stamps are embossed for an extra bit of fancy.  The background is smooshed DI's with some interference gold misting and inked edges.

image stamp:   Stamp-It         

sentiment stamp: ?magazine freebie
