Banner Inspired Holiday

It's hard to believe it's time for our final Jingle Belles prompt of 2023. This fortnight we're asking you to make a card inspired by our fabulous Lauren-designed 2023 Blog Banner. There are so many possibilities for inspiration: the pink + white + tan color palette OR the trees and/or snowflakes OR the glittery letters OR... well, you get the idea! Choose any aspect(s) that appeal to you; just be sure to let us know which elements you're incorporating into your design!

Here's how we were inspired this week:

Stephanie says, "I went with the two tone ink design, white snowflakes, glittery letters and swapped the texty background for a musical pattern.  Paper is Prima's Santa Baby and those glittery letters have literally been on my studio table since I made this card a year ago (so glad they finally have a home). I added white snowflake stickers and some glittery silver Love from Lizi Peel-Offs to finish the design."

Lauren says, "My card is VERY literal, as you can plainly see! I incorporated the basic sketch, colors, glitter and trees into my super-layered design. The background consists of patina-ed vintage sheet music, part of an ancient Hambly snowflake paper, bits of doily, and torn vellum with typed holiday lyrics. The forest of Taylored Expressions' Evergreens are diecut in pink with white "shadows" and the (quite appropriate) sentiment was made with Stamplorations (sadly out of print) Jingle All the Way die."


A reminder that your card does not have to be a literal interpretation of our blog header, it just needs to be inspired by one or more elements therein! Link your creations right here by 6pm (Eastern) on Wednesday, November 29th. Keyword for galleries and Flickr is JB2324.

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
