One of my favorite Christmas Carols is "I Heard the Bells." I love Michael Burgess' version. I got my inspiration for this project from the Lil' Messages Vellum Holiday Cheer Messages by American Traditional Designs. I had saved a sketch from Create With Connie & Mary challenge#178 and didn't have time to do the project. So here it is anyways.
I cut the card at 6 1/2" x 5" from the Soda Pop Recollections cardstock. The red mat is cut at 5 1/2" x 4" and is from The Paper Company Starburst Translucent red line. All patterned papers are from Recollections Bright and Jolly paperstack. This is an amazing stack filled with a lot of cute, child like designs. And I love the colors. There is something in it for everything! The small strip on the side is cut at 6 1/4" x 1 1/2". The green strip is cut at 6" x 2".
I used my Cricut Sweethearts cartridge for the bell. The bell is cut at 3" from silver cardstock from Bazzill. I added a red bow to the top instead of using the bow cut for this bell.
I also added 3 red blings!!!
