This was then cut with the  Circle dies. I matted it on maroon card stock. The top layer of the bell has been raised with foam tape to give 3D effect. I cut a card panel that is a little smaller than A2 card front and used blue ink spray on the card front. . I adhered my stamped die cut on this . I added a strip of two card stock at the base with the Jingle all the way sentiment also from the same stamp set. The card was finished with some sequins.

My Second card has the Snowflakes Sky die.



For this card, I used the Center Step card . I have used the beautiful pattern paper from the new release Snowflakes Season Collection. For my card front I have used the Snowflakes Sky die CBD229 . I applied Gel medium on the die cut and applied glitter to give it a glittered look. Other snowflakes are cut from the Snow Crystals Die CBD 230 and also given a glittered. For the sentiments, I have used the Merry & Bright stamp set . This was stamped on the die cut from
Layered Lacy Oval Die. I added some pearls on the snowflakes to finish the card.
