It is weird for me to think about Christmas in warm weather.
I do however have one childhood memory of jumping on a trampoline, on Christmas day, in shorts during 90 degree weather while in Texas. Oddest thing ever! I've noticed so many gorgeous traditional snowy cards floating about, but it was really difficult to find summer Christmas inspiration ideas. My dad has me make his cards every year and he lives by the water, so he always requests cards that have a beachy feel to them.
Just in case some of you have the same problem with thinking of warmer weather holiday card ideas, I thought I'd share the four different styles I designed.
Ho Ho Ho
3D beach balls turned into ornaments and a Santa mustache just for fun.
Gone To The Beach
Santa's clothes on a clothesline with a more tradtional choice of holiday colors.
Surfin' Snowman in the Sand
Background is brayered with inks and clouds are acrylic painted. Sand was added by painting brown crackle in and amongst the images.
Handmade palm tree with wire and lights and a little stocking as well as a Hawaiian holiday greeting and snow.
No matter where you are, in the cold or the warmth, I truly wish you a most wonderful Christmas season!
Hugs n' Happy Stamping,
