red light, green light?

ok, it's a catchy title, but it's pretty useless in terms of conveying what this post is about. in fact we're entering the second week of making predominantly red and green cards at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and i just couldn't think of a fab way to convey that in a few words. sorry, i'll have to owe you a title! i did make a card, perhaps you'd like to see it?

(patterned paper: making memories, dcwv, creative imaginations, my mind's eye; clossy white cardstock: paper accents; diecut journal card: my mind's eye; chipboard tree and branches: recollections; other stickers: echo park; brads: oriental trading co; ink: colorbox; adhesives: staples brand gluetape runner, 3m foam tape, gluedots, sewing machine)
making this card, i performed a blunder i haven't made in quite some time, so i thought i'd share it with you: after scoring and folding a piece of 6x12" cardstock, i neatly lined it up on the guillotine chopper and carefully trimmed 1/16" off... can you see what's coming? you can, can't you?! arrrrgh... the FOLDED EDGE!!! yeah. anyone need a couple of red 6x6 cardstock panels??! :) :) :)

meanwhile, over at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ stephanie has a particularly lovely card to show you, and the readers' gallery is pretty awesome, too! why not check it out?!


  1. Lovin' all those red and green layers!

  2. Ah, the traditional colors of Christmas! SO beautiful and love the design on this. You can always find something to do with those extra panels I'm sure. VERY pretty card.

  3. Love all the fabulous layers and the bling, of course the bling!
