Memory Box Jingle Bells

Hi all :-) I am here with a card for the new ABC Christmas 'B' for Bare Essentials Challenge.

This week it is Samantha's turn to host the challenge and she would like to see cards/creations made using the  bare minimum of embellishments.

We are sponsored by Care 2 Stamp  and the prize is a fabulou $15 voucher to the shop :-)

I received a lovely Christmas card from our teamie, Wilma, and I used it for the inspiration for my card. I loved the CAS design of this :-)

I cut our the Jingle Bells text on the Silhouette Cameo and used some tape and glitter to cover the blue card underneath that would be visible. Then adhered the white card over the top, I bought the Memory Box Jingle Bells die specifically for this card, and so glad I did, aren't they gorgeous!

This is Wilma's Card, isn't it gorgeous,,,

 I love the CAS design of this and will be making a few of these ready for next year. Nice and thin for posting :-)

Thanks for looking, the DT have made some gorgeous cards so please hop on over to see them and join in with the challenge :-) It is better to keep making cards all year through and then you will have no last minute panic ,,, you know it makes sense ,, haha :-)

Creative Creations ,,,, Less Is More

Hi Lorraine, what a great idea, love the cutted words and the finish with the twine and the bells.

Marion noted already that you unfortunately joined too much challenges simultaneously, but there is another topic, there must be something stamped on your projects.

We are very happy that you take part at the Cards und More Challenge. To participate in the draw of the prize and the Top 3, you have to follow the challenge rules. I am so sorry. We would be delighted if you join in again next time :-)

Hugs Claudia
