but it wasn't until our lovely guest star and fellow christmas cardmaking enthusiast marie bingaman suggested we use the header as our inspiration this fortnight, that i thought about making a card in those tones. and now i can't stop! here's what i made this week:
something else i can't seem to get enough of is the current cardabilities sketch (#103). i used it pretty loosely earlier this week to make my fruity SOS card, but this time i've been a lot more literal!
i mentioned last week that a lot of my purple and kraft elements were from my regular, non-xmas stash, and that's true again this time. the reindeer die is christmassy, of course, and i used it on some very thin wood veneer sheets that stephanie and i found at kate's paperie in new york. i'd like a bit more of that stuff, actually. i might have to arrange a little detour down to soho on my next trip into the city! :)
be sure to stop over at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ to see marie's and stephanie's amazingly gorgeous cards, and start planning one of your own!
