Lots and lots of Lil' Inker on this card, I brought out everything I had and just started choosing elements that would go together. First, the striped frame is one I cut using Stitched Mat Square dies. Then I cut an Instant Camera Die and and used patterned paper to add a little interest in the colors I was working with. I cut five jingle bells from Christmas Bit Die Set and ran them through my xyron and coated them in different colors of glitter.
Aren't the bells realistic? I strung the bells on some jute twine and added those cute bows, also from Christmas Bits Die Set. The final touch was the cute die cut sentiment...Joy Word Die, also from Lil' Inker. I know I sound like an infomercial for Lil' Inker today, but that's what happens when you have so much to work with! Hope you all have a fun day with a little time to get "crafty" and also time to get outdoors and enjoy the beautiful Fall weather. Don't forget to turn your clocks back tonight!
I am entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge...Anything Goes.
Fantastic and festive Cathy. I love the glitter and twine! I need to used my new dies this week too.
This is so fabulous. I love all the cute dies you used--those little bows are darling, and I love your patterned paper. But, I must say that those jingle bells totally steal the show with all that glitter.
This is very cute! I love the jinglebells! Thanks so much for playing along with us over on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!
Wow...those bells do look real and what a card, just so festive and makes me want to sing a chores of Jingle Bell Rock! Your fabulous layers are amazing and that paper is fun.
Oh this is so fun Cathy! I love the collage look the fun string of glittery jingle bells is awesome - especially that one flipped up like they are ringing.
