Bundling Up With the Jingle Belles

So how many people were like me when they first saw the Jingle Belles prompt for this week and thought we would have to use images that dealt with clothes and bundling up for winter? Am I the only one? LOL

The challenge this week comes from Candy. I discovered her through the Jingles Belles blog a month or so ago and you must go check out her blog, Stampin' With Candy. So creative and lots of great inspiration! So what did Candy want with a "bundled up" prompt? Layers! Yep, thats right...bundle your card up with at least 3 layers!

I used one of the previous sketches from Splitcoast(# 304) to give me a little help, and this is the card I came up with...I love cardinals and am sad to see this SU set retiring. I'll still use it though, 'cause I use all my stuff whether its retired or not. Yep, thats how I roll! The cardinal is a special favorite of mine because it reminds me of my Grandma. She adored cardinals and had them all throughout the house. She would have loved to get a card made with this set.

Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: A Cardinal Christmas
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Deck The Halls DSP, Whisper White
Ink: Black StaOn, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Basic Black, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: CB Swiss Dots folder, SU Alpine ribbon, Xmas Red Stickles, sponge, dimensionals


  1. We're big cardinal fans at our house too ... although they can get a bit feisty when they're nesting ... love the combination of papers in your layers ... so glad you joined our jingle belles fun this week.

  2. Lisa, this is gorgeous! the layering is divine and the addition of glitter to the berries is just perfect. Gorgeous card - love it!

  3. i ♥LOVE♥ how you roll, missus!!! :)

    what an awesome card in EVERY respect: beautiful focal image, glorious coloring, fabulous selection/combination of color & pattern, AH♥MAY♥ZING layers! sheer perfection, in greeting card form!

    (ps: i love the photo w/the numbered layers almost as much as i love the card itself... which is sayin' somethin'!) :) :) :)

  4. Honey-bunny!!! This is a stunner!! I freakin' hate birds (just being honest), but I love how vibrantly you colored this nasty little beast! :D Beautiful layering and the paper choices are brilliant. Love this bunches!
