Happy New Year, everyone!!!
Here's a card I made for the jingle belles challenge: something old, something new. Lauren and Stef are genius to create this challenge cause it will help a lot of us start making our Christmas cards now so we won't be all stressed out later. Thanks girls :)!
I used three different Graphic 45 papers from the Christmas Past Deluxe Edition to create this 5x5 card. I fussy-cut the middle image, which is popped up on dimension tape. All the edges were inked up. I added Frosted Lace Stickles on the four decorate "snowflake" shapes I saw in the papers and added a halfback pearl in the centers. The photo seems to only favor one of the shapes. I also added the Stickles around the diamond piece in the center. The crinkled seam binding is from Pixie Dust Paperie. I made a stickpin and added a velvet rose (thanks Rina). I used burlap twine (thanks Sam) to create a diamond shape on the big DP as well.
So my something old could be...Graphic 45 papers have the vintage feel...and the something new could be...I used my Frosted Lace Stickles, which I just got new refills yesterday :).
Here's a Christmas card from my sweet friend, Ira! Thanks so much, love the stamping and the embossing. Aren't the postage stamps too cute?!? Thanks again, Ira!
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you're having an awesome 1-1-11 :)!!!
