Countdown To Christmas: A Cute Christmas Never Ending Card

I thought it would be fun to do a Countdown to Christmas every Friday. I'm not quite ready yet, so hopefully this will keep me focused on creating Christmas cards and also inspire you. So it is 11 weeks before Christmas right now... time to start planning out your cards and get your supplies on order.

This is a card we made at stamp club. I was looking for a different card for club, I wanted to highlight a variety of papers from a DSP pack, and I haven't used A Cute Christmas yet. Searching around on Stampin' Connection (a stampin' community for SU demonstrators), I found this never ending card by Carol Seitz. So cute - I just had to try it.

I created 2-1/2 x 5" strips of Real Red cardstock to created this card, which results in a 5x5" card. We won't talk about what it was like to cut the little pieces of paper for the peeps. ;)

Panel 1 -

Panel 2 - I used a Diana Gibbs fork bow.

Panel 3 -

Panel 4 - I left a blank square for writing space.

This card was a bit of a jigsaw puzzle to put together and a big hit.

Stamps: A Cute Christmas, Sincere Salutations; Paper: Real Red, Baja Breeze, Blushing Bride, Whisper White, Candy Cane Christmas DSP; Ink: Basic Black, Real Red, Baja Breeze, Blushing Bride; Accessories: Real Red Striped ribbon (clearance rack), Aquapainter, Glue dots.
Thanks for stopping by!

Wow -- I love this idea and the bow is awesome! You must have a lot of patience to work with all the small pieces.

Wow! All that on one card?! I have never heard of this style before. Time for a little research :)
