the flattest card i've ever made. seriously. in my entire life.

we've got a brand new prompt called, "text me" this fortnight at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ so what we'd like to see are designs that feature text paper, script washi tape, book pages, letter stickers, big sentiment stamps... how ever you'd like to get *texty*! here's what i made:

patterned paper: photoplay (plaid) and carta bella (merry); journaling card: graphic 45; border sticker: making memories; gems: eyelet outlet; cardstock: the paper cut; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape, sewing machine 

ok, so, as i mentioned in my title, this card is *FLAT*. like... really flat. yes, it's got a couple of layers popped up on foam tape; but no flowers, no lace, no big swirly gem flourishes... just a sentiment-centric journal card, a texty background paper and some pretty plaid mats. i kept trying to add more stuff, but it didn't look right. so i'm going with this. they might ask me for ID at the post office when i try to mail it, lol! i used the current sketch saturday layout, which is really cool and i guess kind of essplains the minimalism a bit:

stephanie also has some texty awesomeness to show you. why not hop over to ♥JINGLE BELLES♥  and check that out right now, darlings?


  1. I love that piece of text. Great card & challenge too. X

  2. Great use of the sketch, love your card even without all the bells and whistles. Fabulous prompt.

  3. I love your layout and great take on the sketch..... so happy you joined us this week at Sketch Saturday.

  4. Love the text all over, and your plaid barrier/frame to stop it looking too much. Well done.

  5. It's flat, it's pretty and perfect for postage. That's something I try and keep in mind when I make Christmas cards.
