I decided I needed to make a really 3-D card and I had bought some mini bells recently - just in case I might need to use them - so here's what I came up with...
I started by making my background. I used a soft grey card and embossed with a Tim Holtz/Sizzix folder. I made my base card out of a darker grey and used some of the scraps to embossed the sentiment in white. It's a sentiment from Hero Arts Color Layering Wreath. I made a wreath using some green Altenew inks and the layers in the set. I die cut with the matching die and fussy cut out the centre. I wound the tinsel around the wreath and then using some thread and a needle sewed the bells onto the wreath. I used some dimensional tape to add it to the card.
I must admit to really liking this card. It turned out exactly as I envisioned it would.
I'm going to be busy for the next few days as I got an order to make some cards.... the lady went through my Flickr page and chose a few she want to to make with a few modifications. 2 down - 8 to go!
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend all.
