all bundled up? in JULY??!

ok, yes, it's a bit of a counter-intuitive theme this fortnight at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ but bear with me while i explain that when we say, "all bundled up" we're actually looking for holiday cards with *LAYERS*... three or more layers, to be specific. that's do-able, right? even if where you live it's too hot for anything but shorts and a t-shirt! here's what i made:

poinsettia panel made with colorburst and poinsettia stamps by ken oliver crafts, plus some wendy vecchi and impression obsession cover stamps added lightly in the background; ink: versamark; embossing powders: wow; gems: eyelet outlet; rub-on sentiment: making memories; patterned paper: daisy d's, craft and you design, graphic 45; glossy white cardstock: the paper cut; distressing tool: tonic; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, sewing machine

ok, so, everyone knows that using lots of layers isn't much of a challenge for me, lol. but in this case i've got four layers of paper and still come out with a flat card, which i'm kind of psyched about! in addition my poinsettia centerpiece kind of has a few layers of it's own: its got colorburst, then background pattern stamps, then embossed poinsettia stamps, and finally a rub-on transfer sentiment and a few gem centers!

stephanie also has a gorgeous "bundled up" creation to show you, why not hop over to ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and check that out before planning your own layery masterpiece!


  1. Gorgeous card, beautiful colours, great layers. I can do layers.

  2. You managed to pack a lot of fabulous artistry into this card and it shows too! Beautiful colors, design and did you say a rub-on? Oh my goodness, I'd completely forgotten all about them! I may have a bunch stored somewhere in this room, thanks for the reminder! Great card!
