Remember the inspiration photo from last week (see below) - this is my second card for this Jingle Belle Challenge.
I saw those scrolls on the placemat and wanted to get them represented on this card. I found some cool pink paper at Mike's this weekend and some lime green glitter paper also found it's way into my basket. The argyle paper is from a paper pack and I've had those ribbons stashed away.
I used the glittered dots from the ribbon for the ornaments on the tree but first I put a dab of glue on the back of them to glue them to a piece of white paper so I could cut them out. I had tried a punch but it would not go through the fabric of the ribbon, so I thought attaching them to the paper first would make them easier to cut and I was right.
I used a Rich Razzleberry card base for this card as I did for last week's. I like the unexpected surprise of opening an envelope expecting a Christmas card and seeing such wonderful non-traditional colors.
My little personal celebration came today when I went into the supply room at work and found a box of donated book covers that just so happen to be printed on kraft paper. Since they were donated and not purchased with school money I took a few of them and I'm going to try to make one of those origami cubes that I did out of the post-it notes with them. The paper seems sturdy enough, yet thin enough to fold without bulk. You'll see my triumph or failure in the future.
