I want to show you a card I made with Crissy Armstrongs Jingle Bell Ride stamp - the sentiment comes in a set with the image!
I coloured the image with Copic Markers and cut out with Nestabilities labels. The papers are from Crate Paper Snow Day collection, sponged with Vintage Photo distress ink and stamped with Newsprint Definitions background stamp in Antique Linen. The effect is very subtle and doesn't really show in photos well but adds lovely depth irl.
The ribbons are all from my sash, as is the lace. The flower is from Petaloo, adorned with a snowflake sticker and a Dew Drop on gold.
And the card actually JINGLES, I tied some tiny bells on with gold cord. Believe me, it looks and sounds adorable!!
I punched all the corners with a Fiskars punch I've had in my stash forever - I must say I love the effect!
