Bells and Boughs

I took advantage of the recent Stampin' Up! special and purchased the lovely vintage set Bells and Boughs.  I'm so glad I did; it makes such pretty cards.  It is also well-suited to heat embossing which is what was done on this card.  

After the image was embossed in gold, color was added with Cherry Cobbler and Always Artichoke Stampin' Write Markers then layered onto Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  Hard to see in the picture but a tiny Pearl was added to the bell clapper.

Over a Cherry Cobbler card is a layer Whisper White cardstock, the top half of which was dry embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder.  The Christmas greeting was heat embossed in gold on the lower right side.  A strip of Deck the Halls Designer Paper which was treated with the Scallop Border Punch plus a sash of Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding center the card, then the focal image is layered on top.

I was inspired by a lovely card made by Selene Kempton.  Thanks, Selene!
I hope you are making progress toward your Christmas celebrations!!  

Thanks for dropping by!  Have a joyful holiday!
