Jingle Belles blog. The current challenge is Something Old...Something New. I love it! I started by hauling out a new Christmas gift from my husband. He gave me a copy of a book called Uber Origami by Duy Nguyen. He thought I might be able to use some of the origami designs on my cards. So I used the new book to create the tree for this card...BUT let me just tell you that the tree was NOT the first design I tried. I had envisioned folding a lovely origami cardinal, which I attempted to fold over and over again and finally after about an hour tossed it aside. I ended up creating the tree as it looked like an easier design. The truth is, I am going to need a lot more practice if I intend to master the art of origami. The "old" on my card is the designer paper. When I first started scrapbooking and paper crafting many years ago, I purchased a package of Christmas paper from Oriental Trading. Since I still have it, I thought it would be fitting to use on this card.
Supplies: Cardbase: Recollections, Designer Paper: Oriental Trading, Uber Origami by Duy Nguyen, Metallic Thread, Darice Embossing folder, Bazzill Cardstock, Scotch ATG, Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive.
