Banner Holiday

For our last challenge of the 2021 season, we're making holiday cards inspired by this year's blog banner, which looks (as you may already have noticed, lol!) a bit like this:

You can choose any elements that appeal to you: the color palette, the pine trees, the sparkly letters, the snowflakes... just be sure to tell us in your post what inspired you, if it isn't obvious.

Stephanie says, "I loved the rich all-over green of this year's Jingle Belles banner, so that is what I tried to emulate with my card design.  I used four different colors of Green Alcohol Ink on Silver Alcohol Ink Cardstock including Couture Creations Glitter Alcohol Ink (so cool).  Next I tried to use Alcohol Ink Removal ink with snowflakes to get the subtle snowflake effect of the banner, but you can just barely see them.  So instead, I added one large Simon Says Stamp Glitter snowflake and three smaller snowflake buttons with green enamel dots in the center. For the texty element of the banner, I die cut Simon Says Stamp Joyful from Vellum and the silver inside of a tissue box to complete my design."

Lauren says, "I took a little bit of all the main elements from the banner: a green, slightly grungy background flecked with snow; dark shadowy trees combined with snowy white ones; and pale glitter letters for my sentiment. It's a pretty literal translation, but I like how it turned out!"

Link your blog-banner-inspired cards here by 6pm (Eastern) on Wednesday, December 1st. Keyword for galleries and Flickr is JB-21-24. 

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
