a caroling we will go

it's time for a brand new theme at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and this time we're celebrating one of our favorite things about the holidays: the music! so what does that mean in terms of card-making? well, we'd like to see cards that feature sheet music, or sheet music patterned paper, OR you could base your card design on your favorite holiday song or carol; just be sure to tell us which one it is, ok? i went with sheet music inspired patterned paper, this beautiful greyish/taupe and white example is from a crate paper collection several years ago:

patterned paper: crate, anna griffin, kaiser; ornament, brads and journal card: mme; snowflake border sticker: basic grey; pearl strips: eyelet outlet; white kromekote cardstock: the paper cut; ink: colorbox; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape, sewing machine

i've added in a diecut ornament, a couple of brads and a matching journal card from my mind's eye, and used mats made from patterned paper scraps in coordinating colors. oh and i couldn't resist glamming up the hangers from which the baubles descend with some eyelet outlet pearl strips.

i was inspired by the current sketch saturday layout (#478), though i've rotated the design 90 degrees clockwise, and my "stripes" are the horizontal bars of the sheet music.

stephanie also has an awesome card that's well worth singing about. why not hop over to ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and see for yourself?


  1. Oh love the pearls, awesome card and it seems easy to find some music paper.

  2. Such a delicate Christmas card. The music paper looks like vellum. Great use of the sketch too. Btw the carol on the on! X

  3. Pretty Christmas card...I love those ornaments and using the patterned paper for the stripes in the Sketch. :) Creative! Thanks for joining us at Sketch Saturday this week.
