Cardstock Christmas, Week 2

We're still eschewing patterned paper at Jingle Belles, and celebrating Cardstock Christmas! This week I've used one of my favorite "scrap-busting" techniques: cut them into strips of various size and arrange them in quilt-like patterns.

It's also quite an addictive process, so I'm not sure I've ever sat down and only made just ONE panel. In this case, I made a red and a green; then pressure embossed them (the green used Spellbinders' Forevergreen; the red features an older Sheena Douglass folder that seems to be OOP) and added a little sanding and Unicorn Ink to emphasize the texture. Large fabric flowers, ancient ribbon and brads, bold cardstock mats and machine stitching complete the design(s).

Cardstock Christmas continues at Jingle Belles until 6pm next Wednesday night (3/22/23) so there's plenty of time for you to join the fun!
