oh HOLE-y night?!

yep, we can never resist a holiday pun at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥... the more egregious the better, lol! so what could we possibly mean by "oh HOLE-y night"?! if you guessed that we're making cards with windows or other apertures cut through them, you are exactly right!

patterned paper: glitz design + vintage sheet music; cardstock: bazzill; poinsettia + velvet holly leaves: petaloo; greenery: tim holtz thinlit dies used on scraps of green patterned paper and cardstock; wood veneer: photoplay; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, xyron, gluedots

i acquired a couple of new die sets at paper anthology this week, and tim holtz's "holiday greens" was one of them. i love florals and greenery at any time of year, but maybe most of all at christmas. so of course there was no question that my window card was going to involve some festive foliage. i used two successive sizes of nestabilities' "labels two" to cut and mat my window, and added a beautiful burlap poinsettia as the focal point. visible through the window inside the card, there's some vintage sheet music and a wood veneer sentiment to round out the design.

stephanie also has something rather lovely to show you, why not hop over to ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and check it out?
