friday is always my favorite day of the week, especially when we have a new ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ prompt, and even more especially when we have an awesome sponsor; since both of those happen to be true today, i'm one happy card-makin' girl! the sponsor in question is SRM stickers, so i bet you can guess the prompt, can't you? (hint: if you think it might just be to make a holiday card which includes one or more stickers, you're red hot!) :) :) :) of course, the stickers *you* use do not need to be made by SRM; but on the other hand, they make such lovely, useful, clear designs, i bet you have a couple laying around! since that fine company gave stephanie and myself a most generous packet of their latest products, i had lots to choose from... and thus i may have gone slightly into "sticker shock"... but in a GOOD way... see?!
yeah! once i got going, i just could not seem to stop, so i made a whole gift set! for one thing, SRM makes these totally awesome glassine bags, in a variety of sizes (this is the largest); i love the way i can put the card and pillow box inside and you can sort of see them... but it's still a little mysterious:
|(glassine bag, labels by the dozen, sticker stitches, and we've got your border stickers all by SRM; deco tape: freckled fawn; xmas tree die: sizzix)|
|(pillow box, we've got your sticker-xmas, we've got your border stickers and sticker stitches all by SRM; deco tape: freckled fawn; ribbon:making memories; patterned paper: crate paper; twine: doodlebug; tissue: michaels)|
|(we've got your sticker-xmas, we've got your border stickers, labels by the dozen and sticker stitches all by SRM; patterned paper: crate paper; ribbon:making memories; glossy white cardstock: ranger; ink: colorbox; adhesives: staples brand gluetape runner, 3m foam tape, sewing machine)|
i owe the very cool layout of the card to the nice folks at unscripted sketches, who, as usual, are full of inspiration!
speaking of inspiration, we have melanie, one of the lovely designers from the SRM blog along with us at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ this week, and of course miss stephanie has rocked the sticker-usage too, for that matter. if none of that interests you... did i happen to mention... the *PRIZE*??!?! check it out, darlings! ♥
