Christmas Bells

Hi, this is my card design for the current  52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown

This week it is a theme challenge of bells






After checking through my crafting stash, I could only find this one Waltzingmouse Stamp of Bells. I used it as the main focal point of my card, stamped twice in traditional red. I then masked off a central panel and stamped using Clarity Stamps Holly and Ivy as a background. Plenty of Distress inks for shadow. I drew a wiggly line around the central panel with a fine marker pen, twice and coloured in with red. Finishing off with my sentiment "Merry Christmas" from Waltzingmouse Stamps again, and a red mount.





Thank you for visiting and reading about my card design

  4. That's ONE layer?!? You did such a fabulous job with the masking, coloring, and sponging that it really looks like there's a separate panel with the bells adhered over top of the leafy background. I am totally impressed!
    Thanks for sharing your wonderful card with us at 52{C}CT! I hope you'll join us again soon for another challenge.
