Grid Technique for JUGS and FESTIVE FRIDAY COLOR CHALLENGE

 
 
I made my card for the Grid Technique Challenge at JUGS.  (The photo quality is not that good as I had to take it inside with a flash). This is my first time trying the grid technique, but thought I would give it a try.  I cut a 4" square of Whisper White CS and scored it diagonally every 1/2" in both directions.  I stamped this image from Taylored Expressions Christmas Blessings set in Night of Navy ink and trimed it leaving a small white border.  I mounted this panel on SU Night of Navy CS and added a mat of American Crafts Silver Glitter paper.  This is mounted on Night of Navy DSP with foam tape.  I also added a Silver Glitter paper mat and Night of Navy CS mat.  The sentiment is from the same set stamped in Night of Navy ink and mounted on a Spellbinders Grommet Tag (which I trimmed down on both sides).  I used Night of Navy 1/8" ribbon and mounted  it with foam tape.  The base is Whisper White CS. My card size is 5-1/2 by 4-1/4.
