Jingle Belles Round 2 - I'm Dreaming of a Bright Christmas

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.  


  1. What a perfect die cut to bring in the swirls ... so glad you got inspired again with us at jingle belles.
