Jingle Bells

Halloween is right around the corner, so that means Christmas isn't too far off, right? Well, I've been busily making Christmas cards and I have one to share with you today. It features two new finds for this month: Joyful Jingle and Jingle Bells Stencil.

I used some Christmas paper I had in my stash to cover the base of the card. I pressed a Versamark pad through the stencil onto a piece of cardstock and embossed it with. a glittery gold embossing powder. I trimmed that piece down, added some ink with a blending brush, and attached a burgundy cardstock mat. I added that to my card base. I then stamped the sentiment on another piece of cardstock, once in black and once with versamark, and embossed with the same powder. I also added ink to that and a burgundy mat. On the back of that I added some foam tape and a cut of twine. That was attached to the card base, along with a couple of gold embellishments to finish off the card.

Now, just in case you were really hoping to see a Halloween card, here is one I made last year using Howl-o-Ween. Still a favorite of mine.
