Christmas Bell

Hi bloggers!  The Christmas Bell die set is another one that could easily be used outside of Christmas.  Think anniversary or wedding for this one and you have a really versatile die on your hands.  I have cut two of them here to create the look of a pair of Christmas bells.  The beautiful bow works well at the top of both of them too for a super simple elegant card.  You just need to get your comment on this post to be entered into this drawing.  The last post of the day will be here at 6pm tonight.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue

What a gorgeous card. It’s using one of my favourite 3D embossing folders too. I remember showing you a photo of a card I’d made using it at Ally Pally. Now on to the new die set. What’s not to like. It’s lovely. I am biased, obviously, me actually being a Bell!
Seriously though, a beautiful die that could have so many uses. I love it.

Love Helen xxx

Calling it Christmas Bell was smart because we might not have thought of it for Christmas. Just the bow makes this set worth the price. Can't wait to see how the twiggy bits would be used. What a winner, all around!

Jomada-Dawn said...

Oh my, another beauty! Five dies, so I'm guessing that one is the outline of the bell and another the intricate pattern within. That's always a bonus with your dies - adds versatility and makes it so much easier to layer up different colours. And, with the little heart in the pattern, this would be ideal for a wedding/anniversary card.
