What is Christmas without bells? Well, that was me....no bell stamps to use darn it! So I had to improvise. Here's the challenge for this week at Merry Monday:
And this is my bell card using "Punch Art":
The only stamping I have on this card is the sentiment from the Good Greetings stamp set. Here is a close-up of my bell using Gold Foil and the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder:
And this is how I made the bell:
- Body of bell: Ovals Framelit Dies with Gold Foil embossed with the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder. Punch a small hole at the top. Once bell is assembled at the end, snip excess oval.
- Mouth of the bell: Wide Oval Punch in Gold Foil and Whisper White Cardstock. Layer with only a small portion of the white showing, glue to the front of the body of the bell.
- Clapper: 1/2" Circle Punch and a small sliver of cardstock about 1/4" wide. I used a Stampin' Dimensional to pop the circle.
- Add a small punched circle at the top and add a bow!
