Bells and Boughs Card

Ok, ready for the next installment of some absolutely fabulous Christmas cards? Well, I promised that you wouldn't be disappointed, and I'm pretty sure that is very true. What?
You don't want me babbling on??

Just get on with the card?
Is that what you just said???
My goodness, some of us are getting just a little impatient there, aren't we? All right, here's the 2nd installment of some fabulously awesome Christmas cards. This one was designed by Phyllis Dahlstrom. She almost always has some cut-out layers on her cards that really make them a 'cut above' the rest.
Anyway, it's lovely, isn't it?
Stamps: Bell and Boughs
Cardstock: Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler, and Very Vanilla with Deck the Halls Designer Series Paper
Ink: Stazon Jet Black, Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, Crumb Cake, and Soft Suede
Accessories: Aqua Painter, Wide Oval Punch, Always Artichoke Grosgrain Ribbon, Sponge Daubers, and Dimensionals
I love the vintage feel of this card. All the colors and images are working together to make it just gorgeous. And that fabulous Deck the Halls DSP - wow - really makes this card look rich!
Cutting out the bells and ribbon was a bit of work, but so very well worth the time. Having them popped up over the holly sprig really makes them stand out.
If you like the vintage look, consider getting this stamp set, and absolutely get the Deck the Halls DSP! It's a 'must-have' on my list for making cards this Christmas!!!
Ok, are you ready for one more fabulous Christmas design? Come on back tomorrow for the last of the awesome, gorgeous cards we made last Saturday. Have a terrific evening...
