Going Clear for Jingle Belles

Because I work nights I'm always up later than everyone else in the house, even on weekends. After my husband and youngest went to bed Sunday night I headed into my craft room and worked until the wee hours on a card for the current Jingle Belles challenge.

For this challenge we were to use at least one see through element on our card. I started going through my hoard of DSP because I knew I had something that would fit the bill and sure enough, I had some retired SU Christmas DSP that was clear with red velvet in a pattern. I took the clear DSP and attached a backing of white card stock, as I wanted the card base to be red and without the white backing the clear DSP and it's design would just blend in to the background. I created a white scallop frame with an MFT die and then adhered all of that to the red card base. The sentiment on the front is an older retired SU stamp, and the 2 label dies I used are also retired SU. I was throwing it back with all of the products on this card LOL

  1. well, you know that as an SOS team member as well as a JINGLE BELLE, it so totally warms my heart to see such a fab example of "throwback" items being compiled together in a way that makes one think brand new stuff is HIGHLY over-rated! ;) in short, what a FAB addition to our, "midnight... clear" gallery at JINGLE BELLES! <3 <3 <3
