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.
