Belles Are Ringing

Because we're still making cards that feature bells at Jingle Belles! Here's what I made this week:

journal card: simple stories; patterned paper: echo park; cardstock: bazzill; ribbon and trimming from my stash; holly brads and star sequins: eyelet outlet; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape, nuvo deluxe adhesive 

I love that so many paper companies include journal cards in their paper lines and I tend to snap them up, because they're the perfect "kickstart" to a card design. This one hails from Simple Stories' "Claus and Co" line from a few years ago. I added a little handstitching, a pair of Eyelet Outlet Holly Brads and a scattering of EO Star Sequins (attached with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive, perfect for the job) to the journal card, matted and added a few trimmings et voila! An almost instant A7 holiday card that's flat and mailable, but still has enough texture to be interesting!

Hop over to Jingle Belles to see the growing Readers' Gallery and Stephanie's beautiful card, then link up one of your own!
