Jingle Belles 27 - Stars and Stripes

Actually that should be Stars OR Stripes, but I decided to go with both on this card.  It's a holiday week and we're celebrating with our Patriotic Stars and Stripes so why not use that for our Christmas card this week.  I found this SU dsp - unused - in my stash and put this together with some star punches and the MS fern punch.  The colors are very subtle, but in real life it looks really pretty. 

I can't believe that we are up to week 27 already.  It doesn't seem to be that far, but when I look into my box of cards I am very happy that I will not be scrambling as I usually do in November/December to get them made and posted before Christmas.  I will venture a guess that HWNSNBP will be happy about this also.  He quite looks forward to seeing what I've come up with each week - at least he says he does. 

I got one of my Christmas books that I usually order each year - the Gooseberry one, and I think I might actually have time to make some of the stuff in there this year!  I'll have to pull out some of the back issues and start making some plans for gifts. 

Okay, let's go check out the other Stars or Stripes cards for this week here.


  1. How lovely!!! This would make one perfect holiday card with those stars and stripes!

  2. i love what you've done with this challenge. the stars and ferns are perfect

  3. oh wow♥WOW♥wow!!! how lovely is that?! i adore the colors and the way you've worked in stars AND stripes and... well, actually i love EVERYTHING about this, including the cool punched evergreen branches! (i think i NEED that punch, lol!) a triumph for sure, miss lorraine!!! ♥

  4. And you'll have time to make gifts when your cards are all ready to mail ... hmmm ... maybe a gift prompt should be in our future ... love those elegant stripes and the muted tones ... so glad you joined our jingle belles fun.

  5. I was just wishing I had a fern punch yesterday while I was making a card. I love yours! Thanks for the enabling :)

    When I first saw your card I got so excited…I have that SU paper in my stash and the SU top note die and punch. It is fun to see a fab card design and know you could nearly re-create one like it!
