Hi card making friends. It’s Sandi MacIver here and today I’m over on the Alex Syberia Designs Youtube Channel with a New Card Making Video – Jingle Bells Christmas Cards. I’m using the Jingle Bell Joy Die Set and making it even harder, the August Color Challenge from Alex Syberia Designs, LOL. YIKES!….. It’s always fun to try a color challenge and see what you can come up with, LOL.

You will see at the beginning of the video, I dug out some cardstock I thought would work for this challenge, but then I changed my mind, and I made my own cardstock colors with ink pads.
