I’ll Be There with Bells on!

I'll Be There with Bells on!
I’m so excited to attend another shoebox swap with my SCS stamping buddies in Laurel, MD today! This is the card I designed for the occasion, using some of my new Stampin’ Up! goodies. It’s a Tent Topper card (I just love making these) with a Chocolate Chip base and a Cherry Cobbler Top Note topper that is attached with dimensionals. The base is covered with a Snow Burst-textured vanilla panel.

If you are wondering how the mini jingle bell was fastened to Dasher’s neck, here’s what I did: I pierced two little holes on either side of his neck, threaded a piece of bakers twine through the little hole on the mini jingle bell and used a needle threader to pull both ends to the back of the card stock where they were taped down.

Thanks for stopping by!

    It was good seeing you, and that was one of my favorite cards of the day! By the way, how do you photograph your cards so well?

    Love this card! Can you explain how you made the two layers of the top note die? Did you cut one out by hand? I can’t visualize it. Thanks!
