layers upon layers

this fortnight at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ we are celebrating the official beginning of summer by being, "all bundled up" obviously, lol! no, you needn't grab a cardi... (tho actually here in NJ it's been cool enough that even i, queen of t-shirts-in-winter, wore a jacket the other day?! unheard of!) ...we just want to see holiday cards with three or more layers! do i even have to tell you that i went with the "or more" option? nah. didn't think so. ;)

scanned and resized vintage pc from my collection, printed on canon medium glossy photo paper, trimmed and distressed on the edges; golden doily and seambinding from my stash; patterned papers: glitz design, pion, photoplay, october afternoon; ink: colorbox; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape, sewing machine

ok, so, a familiar look from me --torn layers of paper-- but, this time instead of vintage paper, i've used all ordinary store-bought patterned papers, in neutral tones, so that the colors of my (scanned and slightly scaled down) vintage postcard would really pop. seeing as how i did have to scan and crop it, here's a closeup of the card in question, which is addressed to mr. herbert gerwerd, from will, and postmarked philadelphia, pa, december 23, 1907! you are welcome to print and use this in your own creations, if you'd like to: 

i was inspired by the current --and alas, final-- mojo monday sketch, though in the end, despite test-driving a number of pretty ingredients for the role of the cool vertical strips, my card wound up feeling finished without them. meanwhile i send a heartfelt, "farewell and thank you" to julee tilman for 500 amazing sketches over the course of nearly ten years?! mojo monday will definitely be missed, but i'm looking forward to what is next for that talented lady! 

stephanie also has a beautiful layery creation for your delight... why not hop over to ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and check it out, darlings?!
