banish the holiday blues

it's time for a brand new prompt at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and this one is not only kind of fun, but also a bit loosey goosey. for "banish the holiday blues" you can make any style of holiday card you'd like, using any technique, theme, images and ingredients, BUT... you can't use any blue! easy peasy, right? here's what i made:

patterned paper: studio calico; merry tag: "counting christmas #3" set of tags by katie pertiet, designer digitals (printed on kodak premium glossy photo paper); red and plaid tapes: martha stewart; glitter gold tape: eyelet outlet; florals and velvet holly leaves: petaloo; ink: colorbox; sand colored cardstock: bazzill; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape, gluedots

this is one of the fastest cards i've made all year, and that is 100% thanks to this week's awesome retro sketch (#215) which instantly helped me decide not only how to place my ingredients, but actually which ones i wanted to use, which was awesome!

stephanie has also made a lovely card to inspire you, won't you hop on over to ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and enjoy that right now?


  1. Beautiful card, great take on the sketch love how you used the papers and colours.

  2. Cool two tan-toned DPs in the back... subtle but awesome detail. That tag has a great vintage-funky feel to it... right up my alley!
