it's christmassy tic-tac-toe!

at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ this week, i mean. we've got a fancy game board and everything. see?!

the rules are pretty simple; and, i mean, we've all been playing tic-tac-toe since we were little, right? get three in a row... or in a column... or in a diagonal. then make a card. ok, specifically, a HOLIDAY card. but i figure if you're hangin' out with us at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ you're already up for that, right? here's what i made.

(patterned paper: pink paislee, basic grey, echo park; vellum: webster's pages; thin die-cut-able wood: the paper co; mini bingo card: jenni bowlin; florals: prima, we r memory keepers, making memories; brads: my mind's eye; reindeer die: tim holtz/sizzix; heart dies: cutllebug; scaloppy scissors: ek success; other: doily from my stash + vintage plaid ribbon pinched from my mom's sewing room when she wasn't looking! ;) ink: colorbox; adhesives: staples brand gluetape runner, 3m foam tape, gluedots, sewing machine)
i guess i should probably point out that it's definitely not necessary to make a card that *matches* the game board, and in fact, i only did it sort of accidentally. but i made the board and the card in a back-to-back session, so clearly there was some "creative overlap", lol! :) i used this awesome sketch from feeling sketchy... but i had to flip it horizontally because of where the flowery corner was on my pretty webster's pages vellum. i'm linking up at 52-card-pickup, as well. which i do most fridays. (and you can, too!)

something else you can, and should, do... is head on over and check out stephanie's card at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥... and then link up with us, because we love to see your gorgeous cards!
