Christmas Bells

Marlene is the host for this weeks Winter Wonderland challenge and she has chosen 'Show us your Gold or Silver' and 'An Embossed Background' as the themes.

This week we are sponsored by Crafts and Me who are giving an £8.00 voucher, A Day for Daisies who are giving $12.00 to spend in their store and Crafter's Companion who are giving a £10.00 voucher to spend in their store.

I have chosen both themes for my card and have used 'Christmas Bells' digi from A Day for Daisies. I am entering Christmas Card Challenges 'Anything Goes', The Craft Barn Two Weekly Challenge 'Clean and Simple' and Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra where 'Anything Goes as Long as it's Christmas'.


Card blank: 7" x 5" white silk
Stamp: A Day for Daisies 'Christmas Bells' digi
Embossing: Creative Expressions 'Sparkle Squares'
Colouring: Promarkers, Sakura Gelly Roll 'Clear Star'
Card: Silver mirri, white silk
Other: Wink of Stella

I embossed white card, trimmed it to size, layered it onto silver mirri and attached it to the card front. I resized the Christmas Bells digi and printed it onto white card, this was trimmed and layered onto silver mirri.  I coloured the bells and bow with Promarkers and added a Wink of Stella, before attaching the panel to the centre of the card.  To finish I added a dot of Clear Star to the bell clangers.
