Joyful Jingle Bells

Let's shimmer and shine!


I think I got a bit carried away with the Glimmer Paper.

But sometimes a little sparkle is the order of the day.

is looking for GLITTER.

The inspiration photo at
looks like a good fit don't ya think?


And don't forget that
is looking for bells this week.


I found that my 3/4" circle punch was a perfect fit behind the jingle bells and punch silver and gold foil paper to put behind the Lil' Inker Jingle Bells.  It seemed to ground the bells a bit.

The bow is made with some fine, covered wire that I found at Michaels.  
I love how I can curl the tails.

This card is very heavy and will have to be handed to someone.

LOL! It's so front heavy that it doesn't want to stand up.

I think I need to put some bells on the inside too!

I was so excited to see that I won an Honourable Mention


She has put all the tags on a Pinterest board for easy viewing.


Thanks for the visit.

Enjoy!

These are very pretty and glittery bells Bonnie. I love the white embossed layer and the embossed lines you have added to the card base and the silver wire looks great curled around. x

Liz said...

Gorgeous sparkly card. :-) I've also sometimes made the front too heavy, so the card topples over. LOL!! Could you add a piece of card to the back to make the back a bit heavier, so the card stands up? xx

What a joyful card--even the bells look like they're smiling! I had to laugh when you told how heavy the card is. Maybe you could put an easel on the back so it can be displayed. After all, there's no such thing as too much glitter ;)
