Project Christmas 2011 ~ card 11

Hey crafters, hop over to Jingle Belles NOW!!!
They have the most beautiful color palette this week


suggested by Leslie - The Crooked Stamper, aren't those colors soft and pretty?

Here's my card.....


Simply huh?


I am thinking a lot about putting them in the envelope end of this year when it is time to send these holiday cards, so I am keeping it as "flat" as possible...



Thanks for visiting my blog today! : )

DID YOU SEW ALL THOSE PIECES TOGETHER?!?! Color me impressed. I love the idea of a strip of blue and white on the Kraft card base. Very simple (well, except for all the sewing. Love it!

Thanks for playing!

Love how the embossing and stitching adds such visual interest without adding bulk ... certainly a design that could be multi-produced ... thanks so much for joining our jingle belles fun.

LOVE your card!! just look at all that sewing you did and how wise to keep them flat..........should think of that myself! lol

Sue said...

What a fabulous "non-traditional" card you've made with this non-traditional palette! Perfect! And you're right about the flatness issue - perhaps I should pay more attention to that...
