Elegant Christmas Bell


 
 


Happy Thursday!

Kathy with you and today I have a Christmas card for you using the Elegant Christmas Bell, Holly Berry Mini, and The Homemade Christmas Gift Set dies from The Scrapping Cottage.





For my card I started with a red base and added a white mat embossed with a snowflake die.  The Merry Christmas sentiment is cut using The Homemade Christmas Gift Set and red cardstock.  I ran it through my XYRON Create-a-sticker machine to make it easier to adhere to the card.  The Elegant Christmas Bell was cut with red and green cardstock and gold designer paper from Glad Tidings Mat Stack.  I glued the bell to the mat and then added branches that were inked with green and shaped a little.  The bow was inked with red and shaped it a little before adding it the to bell with pop dots.

I wrapped the plaid ribbon around the mat and added a bow made with the Bow-Easy.  I used the Holly Berry Mini with red and green cardstock to add holly to the bow center after shaping them a little with my fingers and a stylus. 

To finish the card off I added a button with a floss bow.

These are the dies I used.
