rockin' the presents... into the future...

we're still having fun at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ with "no time like the presents" for which we'd like to see holiday cards that include the image of an actual present... OR that use some upcycled giftwrap in place of (or in addition to) patterned paper. easy, right? Here's what i made:

gold giftwrap: from CVS i think? last year??; plaid journal card and cardstock sleigh sticker: photo play; alphabet stickers: (ancient!) making memories; gorgerous red cardstock: bazzill; doily from my stash; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape, sewing machine

again, i've got both sides of the equation: a sleigh full of gifts, as well as a background of gold polkadotty goodness that was a leftover bit of very verrrrrrrry thin wrapping paper, so i xyroned it onto a bit of scrap cardstock. and that's about it, really. this first prompt of the year does run slightly longer than usual: until january 18th in fact; so that's nearly three weeks, rather than the usual fortnight. (after which we'll be back to our usual schedule!) which means you've got plenty of time to link up. AND... i'll be back to remind you one more time next friday! meanwhile, stephanie made another fab card this week, so you should check that out at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ darlings!


  1. Fab. idea with t zyron for the thin paper. Super cute image and love that plaid. Nice sketch too.
