Bells & Boughs

I created quite a few Christmas cards for my mom’s StampinUp business. These two I’m posting today are both done with Bells & Boughs (so happy this set made it to the big catalog!).

This first card, while it may seem similar to other cards I’ve posted, this one is actually the first one I created – and it is also my favorite Christmas card I’ve created this year!

The greenery on this card was created with the pines from Lovely as a Tree. The bells are watercolored, cut out, and popped-up.

This second card needed to be a quick and easy card for stamp camp.

I started by stamping the Sahara panel with the holly image. I sponged around the edge of the panel to help pop it from the card base. The rest of the card should be fairly obvious – a little embossing, some ribbon, and a die cut.

Thanks for taking a peek!
