Santa Claus is Coming to Town

Hi there

When I saw the current challenge at Less is More on Saturday where the theme is 'Jingle all the Way' I wanted to have a raid of my craft stash to see what I could use.  I do now have quite a few Christmas themed products but I really wanted to use bells and what do you know, I found one!

And, when we hear that recognisable sound of the sleigh bells, it means one thing....Santa Claus is coming to town!

Here's my card...

I started by drawing two curved lines with a fine black pen on a spare piece of white card (I actually created the curves by drawing around my bow maker).  The little bell stamp is from a Card-io set of little Christmas icons.  I stamped the bells in red and green as if hanging from two wires.  I then stamped the sentiment.  I used a pierced square die to create a nice border for the images and then used the next biggest die to cut a mat of red cardstock and mounted the white square onto this.  The layers were then adhered to a textured linen card base using 3D foam.  Lastly, I added some Glossy Accents to the bells to give them some shine and left well alone to dry.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Card-io Majestix - Deck The Hall; Clearly Besotted - Naughty or Nice?
  • Ink: Versa Color - Scarlet and Green; Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Dies: MFT Die-namics - Pierced Squares Stax
  • Glossy Accents
  • Cardstock from stash

I would also like to enter this card at the following challenges:

Merry Monday - Challenge #136 - Red, Green and White
The Crafter's Cafe - Challenge #91 - Anything Goes
Let's Craft and Create - Challenge #99 - Christmas
