Christmas bells

Hi, Janja here!

Bells are an indispensable element on holiday cards. On the card which I share with you today, I used the die Christmas holly bells from the 2nd part of the Christmas dies.

For the card we need:
- white scalloped card base: 5.3 x 5.3" (13,5 x 13,5 cm), folded
- patterned paper in green: 5 x 5" (12,6 x 12,6 cm)
- plaid patterned paper: 2.5 x 5" (6,3 x 12,6 cm)
- white cardstock: 4 x 4" (10,2 x 10,2 cm)
- patterned paper: 3.7 x 3.7" (9,5 x 9,5 cm)
- white and color cardstock
- Distress ink: Festive Berries, Aged Mahogany, Moved Lawn, Peeled Paint
- Memento ink: Cantaloupe

We cut out the bells and holly branch. For bells use a cardstock in the color of champagne, other cutouts are white.

We will also need a few spruce stems.

Shadow all cutouts plentiful with Distress inks.

Trim plaid patterned paper and attach it on to green patterned paper, and fasten both together on white card base with double-sided adhesive tape.
Stamp "Merry Christmas" on a small square. Attach it in the middle of the background with a foam tape, for more dimensions.

At the end, arrange spruce stems with holly branch. In the middle fix a bells with a bow.

Thank you for stopping by.
