ID: DT Dec/14 - Jingle Bells - My Idea of a Perfect card
size: 5"w x 7"h

Created: December 3, 2014

Ok so another card where I really wanted to use jingle bells... BIG GRIN.

I'm using parts of a couple of Xmas stamps from Quietfire Design  ("My Idea of a Perfect Christmas...") & ("We Believe in Santa")


I scored and folded my white card. Embossed the frame design using Spellbinder's "Decorative Labels Eight" largest die and my tan mat. Ran through my machine, then hit the high points with Distress "Pumice Stone". Dried.

Stamped the quote (minus the word "you") using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Added the three black dots with a micron pen.

Die cut the jingle bells (Sizzix Tim's Movers & Shapers) from white cardstock, then hand cut a solid under layer. Adhered the two toegether, inked it with Versamark and embossed with silver embossing powder, twice. Applied Quickie glue to the two little curved areas and sprinkled with Ritz micro fine glitter "Stardust".

Die cut the pine branches (Impression Obsession "Fall Branch") from white cardstock. Left it clinging to my large piece of cardstock and inked it with Distress "Forest Moss" and sponged "Evergreen Bough", then removed it from the larger cardstock. Adhered the branches to the front of the card. Then adhered the bells.

I won a bunch of ribbon from "Little Scrap Pieces" and the green one was perfect for this card. I tied it in a double loop bow using my quilling comb like a fork... going over every second prong. This little bow style was taught at our last quilling session and definitely comes in handy...

As a final touch on the front, added some white pearl flourishes.


On the inside, stamped the Santa (Stampers Anonymous "Christmas Memories") using the black, clear embossing and coloring with Prisma colored pencils.

Stamped part of the other quote, using only the word "Santa", stamping with the black and clear embossing.

Sponged the edges with Distress "Worn Lipstick".
