Happy Thursday! It’s time for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge. I love today’s sketch!
I tried, I REALLY tried, but I’m weak. I just HAD to get the Sounds of the Season Dies with those gorgeous bells! I couldn’t resist, even though they are late to the party!
- The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Crumb Cake cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
- The 3-1/2 x 3-1/2 piece of Real Red cardstock was embossed with the Winter Snow Embossing Folder and adhered to the front.
- A 3/4 x 4-3/4 piece of Tis the Season Designer Paper was added to the right side.
- The three sizes of bells from Sounds of the Season Dies were cut from Brushed Gold Metallic Paper and the bands across them from Brushed Copper Metallic. I love that detail! They were colored with the Dark Shaded Spruce and Dark Real Red Stampin’ Blends, then added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Some Gold Twine from Forever Greenery Ribbon Pack ties the two top bells together in a bow.
- The ferns from the Sounds of the Season Dies were cut from Shaded Spruce cardstock and tucked at the top of the bells.
- Celebrate the Season from Itty Bitty Christmas was stamped with Memento Black Ink on a 1/2 x 2-1/2 piece of Shaded Spruce, the end cut at an angle, and tucked around the bells with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Some Red Rhinestones were added for the holly berries on the bells!
I’m SO happy that I did order these dies! I love how this turned out! OK…check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did this week over on Create with Connie and Mary!
