We Three Kings

We Three Kings - that means this week we're creating in multiples of THREE

We're asking you to create a card with THREE of one element … three circles, three reindeer, three packages under the tree … you get the picture.

Here are the trios we used to create:

Stephanie says, "I took my inspiration from a Jingle Belles card I made in January 2011.  I die cut three stitched squares using Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Square Stackables Dies and then stamped three circle snowflakes (from Simon Says Stamp Circle Sayings Holiday) and used a 7/8" punch for my circles ... I finished with Eyelet Outlet enamel dots in the centers.  My card base is 5" x 12" two-sided vintage Basic Grey paper with scores at 2" and 4" from the edges for an off-set opening.  You can click-through to my blog to see how it opens.  The vintage Santa is recycled from a holiday card with a sticker holiday sentiment."

Lauren says, "My card features three of my favorite Echo Park diecut trees. I'm trying a new way of organizing holiday scraps this year: rather than let loads of tiny pieces of paper accumulate, I've been trying to either toss or diecut any scraps that are too small for anything except tossing or diecutting. I'm hoping that having a little cache of pre-cut items will make "composing" my cards a bit faster; as well as making it possible to sometimes make multiples in weeks where I've got more than one idea. The plan seems to be working so far; in fact there are two more cards with three trees each on my blog today!"

I'm just marveling at how you both have that turquoise color in your cards with two distinct color palettes and they are both beautiful.
