Christmas, Bella Style!

Happy Monday!!! I'm doing my best to stay on track with my Christmas-card-a-week and for this week's card I used my new JingleBella image from Stamping Bella. Isn't she just so cute in her little Santa suit?!?

I stamped JingleBella with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Bella's Bestest Cream Paper and coloured her with copics. I added sparkly berries with my red Spica glitter pen and gave her furry trim with white liquid applique that I sprinkled with Glamour Dust before heating. There's also a little sparkle on the tree thanks to yellow and pitch black Spica glitter pens. The layout for this card is SSS54, an older sketch from the Sweet Stop blog and I used the mirror image of the sketch.

The patterned papers are from my much loved October Afternoon Good Cheer 8x8 pad...I've gotten a lot of mileage from that pad of patterned paper lately! I ran the sentiment circle through my swiss dots Cuttlebug folder to help it stand out a little because I didn't want to layer it with another colour. I'm really happy with the embellishments on this card...the ghost snowflake topped with a marble Bella Dot and the groupings of three ruby red Bonbons add just the right touch, IMHO.  :)

Don't forget to play along with this week's Bellarific Friday challenge...For the Boys/Men. Create a masculine themed project using Stamping Bella images and email your submission to Em by Thursday evening to be included in the Friday round-up. You might win some Bella Bucks just for playing along!

Thanks for stopping by!

At least YOU are keeping up with your Christmas creations. I told myself to do that this year and I have zippo done! This card is wonderful. I love the fur trim and can't wait to get out of work to go home and give it a try!
