Christmas in July

And it’s Saturday again! This week our theme for the Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Hop is to make a Christmas card.  I absolutely LOVE all things jingle bells so when I saw the AWESOME jingle bell dies in the holiday mini I knew a set was coming to my house to stay!

This is one of those that it is almost IMPOSSIBLE to get a good picture of it.  I wanted to capture all the shiny foil paper so the Whisper White looks darker than what it is.  Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, run through the Dainty Diamonds Embossing Folder, add to card front
  • Silver Foil – cut out the two largest jingle bells
  • Green Foil – cut out 7 of the pint boughs AND the holly on EACH of the two largest bells
  • Red Foil – cut out the little dots AND the lines for the two largest bells
  • Layer everything together and add to card front – smaller of the two jingle bells is added using dimensionals
  • Red Satin ribbon – tie 2 knots, add to top of each bell
  • Whisper White – stamp greeting using Real Red, cut out, add to card front using dimensionals

Isn’t this just a happy Christmas card?

And now for our latest collection…
