Hi all! wanted to play this challenge at Jingle Belles this week! The challenge is to CASE an old Jingle Belles card. I chose to case Lauren's Stars and Stripes card. I LOOOOVED this, too cute, and what I loved about it was that even though it was red, white and blue, it felt totally "Christmasy" and not "4th of July-ey" (I know, not a word!) at all!
Here is Lauren's card, my inspiration!
Isn't this cute? I love the DP she used, I used to have some of that same kind, but alas, I used it all! I also loved the vintage feel she had, so I tried to put some of that into my card.
I started with an old scalloped note that Stampin' Up! used to sell, it's a very light blue (an old InColor) called Soft Sky. I layered another round card I had, again REALLY old from Target, it had a little asterik pattern on it, I was thinking snowflakes! I decorated the edges with some green glitter buttons. I pleated some red ribbon across the center of the card and pleated it down, stapling as I went. But by the time I finished the card very little of that was still showing! I die cut a piece of Tempting Turquoise, and stamped and heat embossed the sentiment with white EP. I stamped that cute little (I thought vintage looking?) elf onto white cardstock and colored him with Copics. I fussy cut him out and attached him to my die-cut piece with some foam tape. I added a little Stickles to his jingle bell to make it sparkle (very hard to see in these pics, that bell is so tiny!) I added a layered, punched star that I made with Real Red and a piece of glittered Tempting Turquoise cardstock. I topped it off with an oooold snowman eyelet. To the left of this layered/glittered/punched/embossed/die-cut/Copic-colored/fussy-cut piece of fabulousness ;) I put an acetate star topped with a larger glitter button in blue.
Well, that is all for me today! I hope you are having a lovely holiday weekend! We took the boys to the Denver Art Museum today, it was really fun. Be back soon!
