JB25: all bundled up

this week at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ our lovely guest star candy blake of stampin' with candy has invited us to be "all bundled up" by making cards with as many layers as possible. awesome, no??! we're stipulating that you must have at least *3* layers, but the sky is the limit, you can take this as far as you'd like, in any direction that appeals to you!

i used a sketch i found at allison fillo's blog, stampin' when i can. i love that she compiles ALL the great sketches each week, because when you're trying to do something specific... (like, saaaaaay, make a "many-layered" card!) ...it's a real time-saver! this one is from a blog called "try stampin' on tuesdays" ...don't you just LOVE the name? i did not, in fact, use any stamps, and i missed the deadline; but that does not dim my admiration or gratitude for their cool sketch:


here's my card:


(patterned paper: creative imaginations, k&co, autumn leaves, love elsie + vintage xmas card & poem from ideals magazine; diecut snowflake border: k&co; epoxy holly stickers: around the block; stacked chipboard "joy": creative imaginations; inks: colorbox; adhesives: tombow monorunner, uhu gluestick, 3m foam tape, sewing machine)


i reckon i've got 11 layers just of paper and cardstock here, and then if you count the sentiment, border and stickers i'm up to 14; but if we get realllllly creative and count techniques like inking and sewing... just call me SWEET SIXTEEN, baby!!! :)

so can you *beat* that? eh??! or maybe you'll go the other direction and show me how cooooooooool your own "bundled" card is with only the requisite three. it's up to you, just get creative, HAVE FUN, and link up at jingle belles by 6pm next wednesday! ♥♥♥
