tis the season..

Hey A Jillian Vance Design fans!!  Its Rosemary here for my second post this week and this time I'm sharing a Christmas card I made using the Big Christmas Greetings stamp set and the Jingle Bells and Holly & Swirls dies.   My inspiration for this card is this week's Merry Monday challenge to use purple, silver and white so I will be posting this to their gallery. 


As I was tiding up my little work space and trying to figure out what I would make I came across a silver jingle bell that I had made for another project.  The bell was created by die cutting some self-adhesive fun foam, peeling the backing off the sticky side and then applying deco foil.   Originally I was only going to use the one bell, but decided that two would look better with the holly swirl.  The little bows come from the Jingle Bell die set and those were also cut from self-adhesive fun foam and foiled.  The holly swirl was die cut from purple cardstock.  To be honest I wasn't sure everything would work, but I do think the card turned out quite nice!  The white panel was die cut using a Polka Dot Rectangle backdrop die and the purple panel was cut using the largest rectangle backdrop die.   After stamping the sentiment I layered all the elements and adhered to my card base.
