Christmas Kickstart Challenge #22 - Jingle All The Way

Hello friends.  Nothing like getting in at the very last minute of a challenge, but that's exactly what I'm doing for the current Christmas Kickstart Challenge which is titled JINGLE ALL THE WAY.


I had such great intentions of getting my card done earlier, but when I saw someone use the same idea I had, I kinda deflated, and there sat the stamp set for a week and a half!  So anyway, I have a much simpler card, but it still fits the bill!  Take a look...


I started by using Lil Inker's Jingle Bell Dies with silver glitter paper, and added them to my card front that uses some PTI Bitty Big DSP in Pure Poppy and a white and Aqua Mist card base.  I also added SSS's Falala die using red glitter paper and Aqua Mist cs for my sentiment.  And since I couldn't use my original idea on the front, I added it to the inside of my card...


Yep, Bonnie had the same idea to use one of the elf's from MFT's Santa's Elves holding the jingle bell instead of the ornament, and since I didn't want to copy her (well, kinda I did!), I just used the elf on the inside of my card, so it's all good!

Lots of CUTE cards in the gallery HERE already, but unless you're speedy quick at card making, you've only got a few hours left to enter this challenge!  I'll try to be more prompt with the next challenge!!  :0)

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!

  1. So glad you kept your idea of the elf with the jingle bell anyway, even if it is on the inside. Great minds think alike! Your sparkly jingle bells and that color combination are so festive! Gorgeous card, inside and out!

  5. Awh, I'm sorry I used your idea. I kept trying to think of something to do with the Lil Inker jingle bells and hit a mind block. So the elf came out. The inside of your card looks lots better than the inside of mine. I love your fa-la-la and that gorgeous red plaid with the aqua bits!

  8. I hate to count how many times that's happened to me, Marcia. Your 'new' idea worked beautifully with the glittery bells and that large sentiment.

  11. Cute cards, Marcia! I stamped that fa la la at the Indiana retreat and it is sitting on my desk...I was thinking of adding ornaments or something similar like what you did...now I will have to rethink this or else, just copy you!! And if I do, it is with the highest of compliments to YOU! Heart Hugs, Col
