FF137 and MM290 I Heard the Bells


Happy Saturday, peeps!  I have a Christmas card for you today, using the Fab Friday sketch and the Merry Monday prompt of "bells":

        

This is one of those cards that seemed more attractive in my head; once I started to make it, it didn't quite match up to the image in my brain, LOL!  But I'd already started, so I pushed through:


My upper panel used a piece of sheet music I printed from an Olde Design Shop digital image; I  "aged" it a little, trimmimg it to fit my Crumb Cake mat.  I added diecuts of a gold bell (Lil'Inkers) and some greenery (Tim Holtz), and adhered them to the music:


The main portion of the card was stamped with a little cabin image from Altenew and the tree from Kaiser's Frosted Christmas Tree set...don't they go together nicely?


After sponging the edges, I mounted it on a piece of the new Merry Merlot....a nice maroon color....and finally, added a few of the little stars from the bell diecut around the greenery and a Cherry Cobbler baker's twine bow!  Another card for the stash!  Thanks for popping in today!  

Miss Cookie Face:


Enjoy your day and be blessed!  Come back tomorrow for a new Paper Players' challenge too!

What a great idea to use the music score on your card, LeAnne! I love it with the jingle bell and the subtle stamping on the bottom of the card is perfect!

Beautiful card LeAnne. I love the rustic scene at the bottom of your card. The sheet music is the perfect accent for the lovely bell and greenery. Thanks so much for joining us at Merry Monday.

Oh, the bottom of your card is so nostalgic for me. This is a beautiful Christmas card. How many do you have in your stash for 2018 now? I've got to get busy making Christmas cards. It'll be here before we know it!

Congrats on your win, LeAnne. I had to come see how you did the kraft panel on your card. I have that Altenew stamp and never knew what to do with it. Thanks for the inspiration. It gives a vintage feel to the aged music and wonderful swag of greens and bell.
