If you've read the title of this post, you already know that the first official ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ prompt of 2017 is called "No Time Like the PRESENTS" so we'd like to see holiday cards that include the image of an actual present... OR which include some upcycled giftwrap that you've used in place of (or in addition to) patterned paper. Easy, right? Here's what we made:
Stephanie says, "When I received this texty tissue paper wrapped around a gift, I knew immediately it would become some holiday cards. I used the Faux Silk technique to create my background adding a Stampin' Up Bauble & punched bow."
Lauren says, "I decided to do both parts of the prompt, so my card has a cute little Crate Paper cardstock diecut present AND I've used some pretty pink croc-embossed giftwrap as a backdrop behind my little collage. I've even worked in an unofficial third aspect of the prompt by using one of the beautiful snow flurry transparency sheets by Hunkydory Crafts that were part of Stephanie's Christmas gift to me! Cool, right?!"
Now it's your turn to make your very first holiday masterpiece of the year. Link up here by 6pm (EST) on Wednesday, January 18th... because yes, we're giving a little bit of extra time to this first prompt; but we'll be fortnightly the rest of the year like usual!
