text me!

the new prompt has just gone up at *JINGLE BELLES* so of course this is a very exciting day for me. can you guess from the title what we're looking for? it's called "text me", which is a huge hint; so whaddaya think? well, if you guessed we want to see bold sentiments, funky fonts, text paper, lots of letter stickers, dictionary pages, or otherwise to make a statement with TEXT... then yes, you've definitely got the idea! here's what i did:

(patterned paper: echo park, my mind's eye, love elsie, october afternoon; large letters cut from an echo park journaling card; ho ho ho sticker: october afternoon, poinsettia stickers: recollections; ink: colorbox; white paper and cardstock: staples; adhesives: staples brand gluetape runner, 3m foam tape, sewing machine)

one of my goals this year is to make at least some of my christmas cards a little less lumpy, bumpy, and expensive to mail. which is not to say that i won't occasionally go nuts* with the large 3D flowers, pearls and other bulky embellishments i love, but in doing my december daily journal last year, i kind of "rediscovered" the fun of combining paper, stickers, vintage illustrations, photos and other such items creatively, so i'm trying to keep that in mind while making my cards. at 6.25" by 7.5" this one is into an oversized envelope, but it's flat, and does't need to be protected with corrugated cardboard, so i'm callin' it a win!

miss stephanie has made an absolutely delightful text-based card this week, which i'm sure you'll enjoy seeing. why not hop over to *JINGLE BELLES* and check it out? i'll meet you there, darlings!

*because, let's face it, i'm still *ME*, aren't i?! :)
