yepper, darlings, we've reached that week of the ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ year in which we eschew the joys of patterned paper and go allllll the way back to basics by grabbin' some plain cardstock and adorning it ourselves! this can be done by stamping, punching, misting, inking, stitching, gluing, embossing, beading, sanding, tearing, diecutting .. well, heck, it can be done ANY WAY you want! me being me, i did a little bit of *everything* lol!!!
yeah. told ya. you thought i was using the word "everything" in a hyperbolic writer-ish sort of way, didn't you? but no, what i meant was, i actually did some punching, misting, inking, stitching, gluing, embossing, microbeading, sanding, tearing, diecutting... oh yeah and at the very end, i stuck a few tiny little pearls on top! i call this my salute to texture, and i'm pretty proud of it, actually!
one thing i didn't do on this card was any stamping... but miss stephanie did so on her card (which you HAVE TO go and see, asap!!!) with such amazing creativity, dexterity and skill, that i figured we were covered. maybe i will try that next week. in the meantime, i hope you will amass your own pile of cardstock, set upon it joyously with the technique of your choice, and join us! ♥♥♥
