To start this Holiday dressed creation you will need my 5095J - Silver Bells Digital Stamp Set. Using the Bells image, imagine the page in 2 halves. Size the image to
4-1/4"x5-1/4" and place on one half of the page. Copy and paste the image to the 2nd half of the page.
Select a sentiment and size to about 2" and place just under the left of the image as shown. Print on Hammermill® White 100lb. Coverstock.
Color as desired. I chose to use Copic® markers.
A full list of colors are listed above.
Color both images as shown.
Fussy Cut the 2nd Image, minus the 3rd bell. Cut the 1st Image in a rectangle 4-3/8"x6-1/2". Cut a 5"x7" rectangle of the pen+Gear® Diamond Print Glitter Cardstock - Silver. and you will need a 5"x7" Cardbase.
Apply Foam® Tape to the backside of the fussy cut image for dimension.
Using the 1" Circle punch to cut the corners off of the Image, 5"x7" rectangle of the pen+Gear® Diamond Print Glitter Cardstock - Silver. and the 5"x7" Cardbase.
Adhere the Silver Glitter cardstock to the 5"x7" cardbase.
Center and adhere the image rectangle to the 5"x7" Silver Glitter cardbase as shown.
Align and adhere the 2 fussy cut bells using foam tape to give dimension.
Using a small paint brush apply Silver Glitter Glue to the Silver Bells as shown.
Apply Nuvo® Crystal Drops - Morning Dew to the berries as shown. Let Dry.
Apply Nuvo® Crystal Drops - Bright Gold to the gold bands on the bells as shown.
Trace around the sentiment using a silver glitter pen. Apply green glitter glue down the center of the holly leaves.
To give my cards a personal touch I apply an OPTIONAL touch, using leftover or coordinating scraps, a name plaque arranged and applied to the backside of the card as shown. Let Dry.
Ring-a-ling, hear them ring and already for Christmas Day!
