Christmas Bells – Celebrate the Season

Need an idea for a Christmas card?  Have some sparkly paper on hand?  Have some fun!

Playing with the Festive Friday (#124) challenge…

along with Happy Little Stampers (December) Christmas and Dies challenges.

Here is the result: 

BELLS & BOUGHS – ITTY BITTY CHRISTMAS – FESTIVE FOILS – FF0124 – HLS December – SUOC316 – Jingle Belles

Steps:

  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Basic White cardstock.
  • Background Panel: (5¼” x 4”) Red colored patterned piece of paper from the Festive Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper pack.
    • The sentiment, Celebrate the Season, from the retired Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set was stamped with Versamark ink and heat-set with White Embossing Powder in the lower right corner.
  • Accent Squares: (1⅞” x 1⅞”) Gold colored patterned paper also from the Festive Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper pack die-cut with one of the Square dies from the Stylish Shapes Dies set.
  • Focal Image: (1⅞” x 1⅞”) Basic White cardstock.
    • The Christmas Bells image from the retired Bells & Boughs stamp set was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
    • The image was colored with a variety of colors from the Watercolor Pencils Assortment Packs.
    • The image was die-cut with the same sized Square die on the diagonal for a diamond shape.
  • Putting the card together, the Squares were arranged in a diamond pattern with the Bells popped up with Dimensionals.

Two of my favorite stamp sets in my Christmas collection came together for a pretty little card. 

Merry Christmas
