Jess Moyer is the guest DT this week at Jingle Belles challenge blog. She came up with a great idea:
Jess said, "I've loved playing along with Jingle Belles and each week looking through my Christmas crafting supplies I realized I have lots of random embellishments that I bought during after Christmas sales that don’t necessarily match up with patterned paper, but I still adore. So I thought why not make a card with just embellishments and no patterned paper and my challenge was born."
I love her idea! I didn't go through my big file of unloved embellies to create my card, but chose to go "old school" instead. I believe I made a card very similar to this one about 10+ years ago when I had just learned to stamp. Today I re-created that card, with updates: I dry embossed the white layer (ACMoore cardstock) with my "Snowflakes" Cuttlebug embossing folder; I added a silver tie and tag; and I added bling using my i-Rock by Imaginisce. The card stock is navy blue linen from XPEDX.
This card is made with Hero Arts papers and stamp; the tree is an EK Success punch. The tiny buttons are from my stash. I added stickles to the darker tree. (I got this idea from an old Hero Arts kit.)
Jess, I love your challenge. I hope I have a chance to play again this week! Next time I hope to use those unloved embellies :)
