Muse #94 + PS Sparks Nov 16-22 Anything Goes + Merry Monday #135 Christmas Bells


I was playing around with the die cut technique used in Marion Vagg's card for Muse #94 today.



With Anything Goes at the Paper Smooches Sparks challenge, I pulled out my Fresh Snow stamps to use, along with a sentiment from Christmas Sampler.






The snowflake was stamped first, then "peace" die cut from the panel and the rest of the sentiment selectively stamped.




The "peace" was die cut several more times from scraps of white and aqua cardstock. These are adhered together, with the stamped die cut on top, before being inset back into the stamped panel.




Wink of Stella adds a bit of twinkle to the die cut and a trio of bells is dangled from one side of the stamped panel before it is adhered to the card base.

I am also going to link this card up to Merry Monday #135 Christmas Bells.



Thanks for stopping by,

Jacquie
