12 Days of Holiday Projects - Day 5



We’re a group of online crafty friends who love being creative. We're now on Day 5 of a 12 day event to provide you with tons of Holiday-themed inspiration. We're making crafty projects using products we like and some of us are even offering prizes! Check each blog for information about what prizes are being offered and when the winners will be announced on that blog.

This card is a CASE of this card by Deanna Jean here. As you probably guessed, this one was made (24 times!) as part of my Church Christmas project, for my mom's church, to help support her handbell choir. 

The bough is from Old Island Stamp Company, the dies for the bow and the bells are from Papertrey. I added some dimension to the bow with a red Copic marker - next time I'll choose a slightly darker shade! And the sentiment is from Hero Arts.

Don't forget to check out the inspiration from the rest of The Crew:

Another stunning card! I love the pretty pine bough - it sure looks great with the red bow (BTW, I can see some shading in the bow).

Your mom's pals are going to treasure this card :)
