Jingle Belles - January 18th

Scandinavian Christmas

Jingle Belles has an interesting theme this week... Scandinavian Christmas... and we are provided with an inspirational picture using Red, White, & Jul.  Uh... ok... what is Jul?  Must be an inside joke among the DT?  LOL... ok anyway... here is my take on their challenge

I used Martha Stewart double-sided paper for the red and then used Darice embossing folders for both the top and bottom part of the card.  I decided to cover the embossed swirls and dots with Liquid Glass... that took forever!  The sentiment was "drawn" right on the paper using my Cricut Gel Pens and using the Wild Card cartridge.  The snowflakes came from Art Philosophy cartridge then I sprinkled them with glitter after they went through the good old reliable Xyron

Card size: 4.25" x 5.5"

  1. what a gorgeous holiday card, that snowflake really is spectacular, and i love the way you've divided the large panel for maximum interest and texture! thanks for sharing your scrumptious scandinavian style with us at JINGLE BELLES!

    PS re the name: sorry, that was our little joke, "JUL" (pronounced "yule") just means christmas in swedish and norwegian! :)

  2. Yes, sorry we didn't clarify the Jul ... sometimes Lauren and I are too busy snorting at each other's puns that we forget that others weren't there snorting right along with us :) ... I adore your card ... fabulous layered snowflake ... so very glad you joined us at jingle belles.
