52 C.C.T. Theme Challenge




The challenge over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown this week is to make a card using the theme of bells.


                                    

The retired Stampin' Up set Bells and Boughs is perfect for this challenge and I decided to make a suitably vintage style card to complement these lovely stamps. I have used a Crumb Cake card base with the Thinlit Circle Card die. I coloured the bell design with markers and added champagne Glimmer Paper stars and rhinestones coloured with Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities. I do hope that you like my card and that you will join us over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown for lots of festive inspiration! April x

  4. I've recently discovered swing cards. They look impressive but are not that hard! It's a lovely card and I particularly like the self-colour stamping on the brown.

    1. Thanks Alison! They're even easier when you use a Thinlit!! (I am a lazy crafter) :-) Xx
