Merry Modern Christmas in July


Hey there Gypsy Soul Peeps! I’m so very excited to share that I’ve begun my Christmas in July projects. I just have so much fun creating with all the Christmas goodies when it’s nice and warm out and I can wear tank tops and flip flops and know that I am going to be well prepared when the actual holiday rolls around with all the extra stress of decorating and shopping and holiday parties!

Merry Modern Christmas Greeting Card on Etsy

This is a very modern card for me. And maybe even a little bit glamourous with the golds and blacks.

The inspiration for this card was the tag and the gorgeous deer ephemera die cut.

I created a unique layered frame by  finishing the chippies with a modern look then stacking them up.

Holiday cards always need elebenty hundred flowers and a generous amount of coordinating ribbon trim.

These sequins add extra detail and sparkle.

The star chippies are tucked in behind the deer and add a lot of extra glam.

Really easy to alter these pieces. First I wiped them down to prepare them for finishing. The scribble Frame and solid star pieces just have a nice coat of flat white acrylic paint. The Feather Flourishes and star borders have gold embossing powder heat set to a pretty sparkly shine.

  1. I have a bunch of those small pine cones…never crossed my mind to paint them with white paint or gesso. Very interesting look for Christmas. Merry July!
