I Spy Saturday – Christmas in July

This week we have a card to cool you down! It features a bit of snow, a bit of merry and a whole lot of Christmas cheer.

If you are working on Christmas cards, then take inspiration from Mandy’s wintry card.

The layers with subtle texture topped by the snow caught our eye. Of course Mandy’s coloring skills caught our eye too. Tweet Holiday is colored up wonderfully.

Find more of Mandy’s creations on IG @aprinklingofglitter.

We are always on the lookout for projects featuring YNS products. Tag your photos with #yournextstamp so we can find your creations!

Happy Stamping!
