For our final Jingle Belles prompt of 2020, we're asking you to make cards that are inspired by our Jingle Belles Blog Header (digitally designed by none other than Lauren).

See-through elements can be tricky, but clearly they hold no fears for our readership, who tackled the challenge with great success. If you haven't yet scrolled through the readers' gallery, we highly recommend the trip, and guarantee you'll be inspired! Meanwhile here are just a few that caught our eye:
...says she's had this pre-printed acetate sheet of snowflakes for several years; we're glad she saved it especially for this awesome card!
...was inspired to upcycle a beautiful vellum sheet she had saved.We love that she added a silver embossed sentiment and the star-punched detail at the edge!
...framed up a sweet winter scene with a star-shaped window; and earns massive bonus points because the inside of her card is as beautiful and intricate as the outside!
And now I bet we'd all like to know who will be welcoming some sweet holiday cardmaking goodies, right?
Congrats, Lorraine, please email your address to firstname.lastname@example.org
so those can start traveling on their way!
Many thanks to everyone who played along, we loved seeing every card! We'll be back at midnight with our last official challenge of the 2020 Jingle Belles season, which we hope you'll think is a banner occasion!

We're still celebrating holiday cards that contain clear elements, whether those be in the form of pre-printed transparencies, acrylic embellishments, or just shaker or window cards which utilize a bit of plastic packaging.
Scroll down to the original post for full details and to link up your own masterpieces!
Here's how we were CLEAR-ly inspired this week:

This week we're asking you to make a holiday card that contains at least one see-through element, whether that be glass, a transparency, some vellum, acetate or "ghost" shapes, clear stickers, lucite buttons, shrink plastic... whatever you like... if you can see through it (& figure out how to attach it!) put it on there and link it up!
Answering a question we had last fortnight: To join our Jingle Belles fun, you needn't have a blog, just post a photo of your card SOMEWHERE online (FaceBook, Flickr, Instagram, Splitcoast Stampers, etc are all fine!) then grab the direct/specific link to your card, and use it to join the InLinkz gallery below. If you need help, you can email us at email@example.com with questions.
Here is how we CLEAR-ly created this week:

When we first started brainstorming ideas for Jingle Belles many years ago, one of the first prompt ideas that came up in our discussion was creatures ... which says a lot about the two of us :) Remember, create a card that features a *creature*. Your creature might be an animal ... a mouse ... a bird ... a robot ... elves ... snow-persons ... or yes, even a monstah ... just have fun with it.
Here are our creatures for the week:
And remember, one lucky participant who links up by 6pm EST on Wednesday will get a fun little Creature Feature prize.
