Happy New Year!If your New Year's resolution involves participating in more creative challenges or being more prepared for the 2015 Christmas season, I've got the perfect blog for you to visit. Not only will you be able to express your creativity throughout the year, but if you participate regularly you will have a collection of Christmas cards already prepared for Christmas 2015. I am referring to the amazing Jingle Belles blog. Co-creators Lauren and Steph offer wonderful, inspiring challenges throughout the year. I've been following this blog for several years now and it is wonderful to be challenged and so fully prepared for Christmas each year.The first challenge for this year involves using wrapping paper or gift tags from Christmas 2014. I knew immediately that I had to use the jingle paper that I had used to wrapped several packages. This beautiful, shiny paper made the packages just so very pretty, especially with the lights reflecting on it as lay under the lit Christmas tree. All I had to do was add a bit of ribbon and a bow and the packages looked fabulous.
For my card, I simply cut a piece to the shiny, jingle gift wrap and matted it on black cardstock. I fussy cut around several of the letters, a tree, a package and holly leaves and mounted them on white cardstock, then used dimensional adhesive to attach them on top of the matching shape. I made an attempt to add red ribbon, but it was a bit too much so, I left it as you see it.
I can tell how pretty your presents must have looked underneath the tree - and your card is beautiful, too! Happy New Year!ReplyDelete
