hooray for the red, white and... green?!

yepper! because even though it's the day after fourth of july, it's still friday and thus time for a brand new theme at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥! we've got a fun tic-tac-toe game this fortnight, for which you can choose any row, column or diagonal and use those three items in your card.

i chose the diagonal which runs from the top right corner to the bottom left. thus i needed to incorporate STAMPING + RED or GREEN (i chose both!) + RIBBON. and here's my card:

block party xmas stamp: uniko; colored with: tombow dualbrush pens; brads and gems: eyelet outlet; tartan ribbon from my stash; patterned paper: echo park, american crafts; glossy white cardstock: the paper cut; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape, scor-tape by sookwang 

being a very very lucky so-and-so, i was given this BEEEAUTIFUL uniko "block party xmas" stamp for my birthday by a certain someone, and i couldn't wait to ink it up! (a phrase i would never, ever, be uttering if i didn't have a MISTI, which was given to me last year by the same certain someone!) since the stamp is 4 x 5.25" you really don't need a lot more to make a beautiful card. i did add quite a few eyelet outlet holiday brads, because the stamp actually included things like the triangle shaped tree, various sizes of snowflakes, an ornament, holly leaves, etc, which i chose to adorn with brads to add color. i stuck to a traditional palette as inspired by the "red or green" box of the game board and only needed to add a few mats and a ribbon accent to complete my tic-tac-toe choice.

stephanie also has an awesome card to show you, so why not hop over to ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ right now and be inspired?! ♥
