Just real quick-like... this is my card for Jingle Belles, whose current challenge is to "bling on the holidays."

Supplies and notes:

  • I love the idea of Jingle Belles... making cards through the year.  I even designated a bin for most of my xmas stuff :)  Soooo I wanted to keep it going.  I made this card rather quickly, and the pictures don't do her justice, but it's actually very simple and very pretty in real life!  Happy to participate!
  • I used awesome snowflake stamps that I bought for the girls a couple holiday seasons ago at Target. I inked them with Tim's Distress Embossing Ink then embossed them using Stampendous Frantage in Shabby Blue
  • The "Merry" was made with Thickers... though every time I use Thickers I feel guilty-- I am WAYYY behind on my scrapbooks!
  • I added generic bling to the center of each flake
Hope you likey!


  1. Ohhhh this is beautiful! Love the blue/white/silver combo and those snowflakes are fantabulous! I bet this sparkles and blings gorgeously! I should get started on some Christmas cards now (not my strong suit art wise) so thanks for the inspo! Hugz ~Niki

    PS-I completely agree with what you wrote on my blog about the first bottle. It just wasn't me. :)

  2. This is very pretty indeed, Mimi! Love the subtle stamping in the background and the gemstones - so pretty! The thickers are a great focal point for this very merry card! <3

  3. Very pretty! Love all the bling!

  4. Nothing better than a QACAS card that makes one's heart happy! Your blingy Merry card is a delight and so perfect for the challenge, Mimi!! Enjoy your day! Hugs, Darnell

  5. Simple yet detailed, love the glitter and 3d effect, but the card is still one perfect for postage. A clean card but with plenty going on, perfectly balanced.
