Double D - It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

Dear Ones~
This time over at the Double D Challenge Blog IT'S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE CHRISTMAS!!! We are to use red and white with maybe just a pop of green. Here is our beautiful Mood Board for inspiration:

 Here's my card:
I have to say I'm in love with this card. Those wonderful jingle bells are a stamp set from Sunny Studio called Holiday Style. It is a multi-stamp image and I think it looks so real. After I stamped the bells in the appropriate colors, I stamped them again with Versamark and clear heat embossed them. That beautiful snowflake edging is from the Stampin' Up Thinlits die set called Swirly Snowflake. I added those cute little green bows that I die cut from the Stampin' Up die set called Balloon Pop Up Thinlits.  I think the thing that really makes this card pop is the red and white. LOVE those colors together, especially for Christmas.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Red Hot and White Card Stock

Cheery Lynn Allison's Ribbons Die
Sunny Studio Holiday Style Stamp

  4. Those Jungle Bells are everything! WOW! How real they look, they're amazing! Oh and I do love how you have done those fabulous layered snowflakes! This is a winner!!! Merry Merry!

  5. Oh My Goodness! I love everything about this card. Those bells certainly take center stage, you are so clever to do them with clear embossing powder. Then the added snowflakes on the side, you make the most beautiful cards.

  6. Like you, I am in love with this card. The bells are perfect and the bow the perfect size. Giving them shine by using embossing powder is the perfect finishing touch. The Cheery Lynn Allison's ribbon is the perfect way to define the two parts of the card. It just went onto my wish list. Is the white panel under the snow flakes part of the snowflake die set of did that border just happen to fit the snowflake?

  7. Oh Judy you are so right about those bells - they look soooooooo very real. Love this amazing layout with those dies. Such a beautifully made card. Stunning!

  8. That panel down the side looks like embroidery, Judy. I love it with those wonderful red bells.
