Jingle Belles Card#2

Happy Monday everyone,everything is back to normal here,Christmas decorations are down,kids are back at uni/school,a tidy house and I'm back in my craft room.
I've now made my second Christmas card of the year and I am enjoying making them knowing I haven't got the stress of making so many in one go. This week the prompt is 'Have Yourself a Merry LITTLE Christmas' so you have to use Inchies or Twinchies (2" squares) on your card.
I knew instantly I was going to use the 2" squares from the Tim Holtz Holiday Pad. I love using squares and stitching on cards giving it that quilted look. I added a holly sprig,bow and a metal greeting.


Have a good week,will be back soon.

Great quilted look, Deb! I thought the challenge said twinchies only, so when I recently made a card with 1 1/4" squares, I was bummed. But I guess there's no such thing as a "One and a Quarter-chie"!

Those twinchies make a beautiful quilt. I love it.
