SOS130: tic tac... two?!

ok, not really. this week's challenge at shopping our stash is the more traditional tic tac toe, using this board:

i needed a couple of holiday-ish cards that were the same, but different, so i used the opportunity-- and the left hand column of flowers, brads, and diecuts or punches to make these:

i think you can see the elements pretty clearly, but just in case, i've got three big flowers clustered on each card, pretty green pearl brads holding on the white blossoms, and my layered accent strips are composed of border-punched patterned paper, a little lace, and jingle bell diecuts!

i used this week's lovely unscripted sketch-- admittedly in a bit of a loosey-goosey way-- to guide my layout; i made long cards because i happened to find those cool green vellum envelopes and thought they'd be the perfect accent!

and now i'm sure you'll want to check out what the other lovely SOS ladies have made for your delight, so off you go, darlings! 


  1. So, you found a way to use the jingle bell die-cut. Mine always looks disembodied, but all your layering skillz really pulled it together!

    Also, I don't think I've known anyone to make a card to fit a cool envelope. You totally win that one, Missy!

  2. Oh WOW! Lauren, this is so lovely. Those flowers are gorgeous and all the red, red, red just make me happy all over. Truly a beautiful card! The green envelopes are the perfect touch!

    (BTW - I'm now a follower of Jingle Bells - and will try my best to start playing along starting in January!!!)


  3. Beautiful card - love your take on the sketch! Thanks for playing at US!

  5. loosey-goosey, lol :) Haven't heard that in ages! Love it :)
    These cards are STUNNING - those floral clusters? The pearl brads? and JINGLE BELLS! Love them :)

  6. Gorgeous cards! So many pretty details and textures. The flowers are so, so pretty and I love the row of jingle bells. How fun!
