Christmas Bells...

Good morning everyone! It's a beautiful, cool breezy morning here- I'm loving this 50-70 degree range we're in right now- finally!! Just a quick post this morning to share another card we made at my class last Friday night.

This card started with a Cherry Cobbler and  Kraft base, layered with patterned paper from the "Deck the Halls" set. Stampin' Up has put out some fabulous matching fabric this season which is perfect for accents on cards and small sewing projects like Christmas stockings, quilted coasters, etc. I used a strip of the fabric for a ruffled ribbon by laying down a strip of Sticky Strip and pleating the ribbon over the top. You could also stitch the pleated ribbon on top of the card for a fancier look.

The bells from the "Bells & Boughs" set were stamped on Very Vanilla card stock with Memento Rich Cocoa and colored with Copics- for the class we colored the image with Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke and More Mustard reinkers using an Aquapainter, which looked remarkably similar. The image was cut out using a circular nested die on my Sizzix machine and sponged with Creamy Caramel while the die was still in place to leave a clear edge. The image was matted onto an Artichoke circle and a Cherry Cobbler die cut and mounted with dimensional dots.

A quick and easy card that could be dressed up with some machine stitching and some Prima flowers, but elegant the way it is.

Hope you're having a great day~
