stars and stripes

in honor of next week's fourth of july holiday, we're celebrating stars and/or stripes at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ but not forever... just the next fortnight or so! and they don't have to be red, white or blue, either; you can use any palette you like. here's what i made:

i've combined a few colorful papers for this one. the stripes and the journal card are both older echo park papers. the trees and the santa sticker are slightly newer, and from doodlebug. the green scrap and the cardstock star punch out are both so old, i'm not even sure who made them, but i guess i shouldn't moan too much about having saved them because they work pretty well here. i used the current sketch saturday to guide my layout:

stephanie has gone above and beyond and made her card patriotic, as well as xmassy, and also a bit intergalactic! none of which you need to do... but you really should hop over to ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and see it, darlings!


  1. Super cute scene, great use of multiple papers, when you use stickers they look awesome when I use stickers that's just what they look like....stickers. Awesome card.

  2. Your card is so cute! I love Santa!

  3. So cute! And the bright colours are wonderful. Love it!

  4. What a totally cute and fun card with that sweet Santa truck! Love those papers and especially the great stitching! Adorable!
