TSG #134

Fun colour challenge at TSG with a winter theme.  Together with this colour challenge, I used the sketch from Skipping Stones Design to make a set of Christmas cards again.

These cards also enter into the following challenges : Annabelle Stamps, Paper Play Challenges, DYSU


The two small panels are white embossed with HA Snowflakes and distressed in festive berries and faded jeans.  This is also the first time that I tried out this ribbon pleating technique which was surprisingly rather easy.  Here is the tutorial of how to make it.  Instead of using the stapler, I used a double sided tape to hold the ribbon.

I am also entering this card into CAS-ual Fridays

So pretty, Lai-Yoke! The distress inks look fabulous together, and the 'sparkle' sentiment is such a great one. Love those little red bells too!
