Jingle Belles - Text Me

I found these two small Christmas cards (on the left above and below) from last year in a basket when I was looking for something else recently and thought that they would be good for this week's challenge for the Jingle Belles - Text Me.  For the one above I simply cut the back off the card, layered it and part of a lace doily the color of the background onto a Very Vanilla card base, and finished by adding a bow out of vintage ribbon.

Below was a tiny bit more involved.  The texty background paper that you see was actually repurposed from a homemade envelope someone sent me a Christmas card in.  (Look familiar to anyone?)  Well, I carefully used my hot breath to heat up the adhesive used to make the envelope, gently pulling it apart and unfolding it.  The creases were pretty well set in so I camouflaged them with some baker's twine embellishing.   I also carefully pealed the popped up Santa hat and ho, ho, ho banner from the other little card.  The owl is a puffy sticker and I think the hat fits him pretty perfectly.  

So let me mosey on over to the Jingle Belles blog and see the other lovely texting masterpieces.  


  1. Love the owl in his Santa Hat ... but wouldn't he say Hooo Hooo Hooo :) ... so very glad you got texty with us at jingle belles.

  2. These are nice and bright! Cute owl:-)

  3. That Grinchy-green owl is adorably cute in his recycled hat!

  4. ok, so i had an awesome comment all planned in my head and then i read stephanie's "hoo hoo hoo" and it knocked whatever i was going to say clear out lol. but i do know it had to do with the fact that i not only love BOTH cards you made, i especially love that they both involve re-purposing things sooooooooooo cleverly!!! and you know that i'm absolutely always happy you can hang your with us at JINGLE BELLES! ♥♥♥
