There's No Place Like Home

We're still celebrating Home for the Holidays this week at Jingle Belles.

Here are our second round of cards made using this prompt.

Stephanie says, "I thought a brick wall would be a great starting point for a holiday card design.  I found some red velvet paper in my stash ... and the crushed velvet embossing produced a fantastic textural effect (not to mention the tiny big of white ink residue that was still on my folder from the last time I used it ... love those happy accidents).  I attached the velvet embossed paper using strong two sided tape adhered about 1/2 inch in from the edges, so the corners would curl slightly for a bit more dimension.  The finishing touch is a 3-D glittery gift tag I picked-up at the after Christmas sales last year ... a wonderful holiday centerpiece."

Lauren says, "I made this (slightly reduced) copy of one of my favorite vintage Christmas postcards last week, intending to use it then; but for some reason I couldn't quite make the design work. In the meantime, I had a little splurge on holiday goodies at Crafty Steals, and my new Studio Calico and October Afternoon papers saved the day! Don't you just ♥LOVE IT♥ when that happens?!"

Remember, link-up your Home for the Holidays cards by 6pm EST on Wednesday, August 14th.
