it really IS cold outside!!!

this has been the first week of wintery weather here in new jersey, so clothing items such as hats, mittens, scarves, winter coats, and so forth no longer seem like optional extras. which is perfect timing since cold weather garments are exactly what we're looking for in our ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ cards this fortnight. here's what i made this week:

patterned paper: authentique, graphic 45, bo bunny; embossing folder: darice... used on idea-ology kraft core gold metallic cardstock and sanded for a cool distressed effect; sheet music from my stash; kraft cardstock: bazzill; dimensional holly leaves and distressing tool: prima marketing; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape, gluedots, sewing machine

i built my card around this sweet vintage-style journal card from authentique. i added loads of distressed layers, a bit of dry embossing (and sanding!), a little sheet music, some machine stitching... in fact there's a little bit of pretty much EVERYTHING i love on a christmas card!

be sure to hop over to ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and see stephanie's card, cruise the readers' gallery and link up your own masterpiece!
