Christmas Kickstart Challenge!!

I always like to try and take part in Jo's Christmas Kickstart Challenge if I can , but this fortnights challenge is "Jingle all the Way".  Unfortunately I don't have any stamps with bells on and couldn't find any digital ones that I really liked.

I found in my bits and bobs draw some mini metal bells so decided to make a card and add these as decoration.  I already had a bunch of these cute reindeer from Clearly Besotted stamped and coloured ready to go.  I created the background by making a stencil using an oval die and then distressing with Cracked Pistachio and Salty Ocean Oxide ink.

Next I added the snow with a Simon Says stencil called "Falling Snow then adding the small village die cut and highlighting this with Nuvo Glitter paste.  The Sentiment die is also Simon Says.

Next I layered up the image onto a red card blank, adding the gingham ribbon and my miniature silver bells.

We are having another wet day here and its really miserable, so I am snuggled up in my craft room having fun!!

Hope you are having better weather where you are.

Another sweet little Christmas scene, Sally! Love that you attached real bells to your card. I did try this, but it really didn't work out as I'd planned. Thanks for playing at The Christmas Kickstart Challenge again, Jo x
