Bells for 52CCT

This is the second card I've created for the current bells
themed challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. I drew bells onto golden rod cardstock, then added highlights with colored pencils and fussy cut around them. I matted the bells on a piece of cardstock that started out as cream color, but I inked it with tan ink so that it would look similar to the background in the bell patterned paper. (Don't you just love that patterned paper?) I finished by adding some punched holly leaves and berries and used red to mat each layer.


  1. Brenda, it's an absolutely perfect card for our 52{C}CT theme this week! You've done a marvelous job matching your hand-drawn bells to the ones in the designer paper. Thanks so much for sharing your work with us! :)

  2. Love these bells - they look so 3D - thanks for playing along again this week at 52CCT - Jacqueline xx

  3. Another fabulous card. I do like the background paper, it goes perfectly with the focal bells. Thanks so much for playing along with 52CCT this week!

  4. Super colouring on the bells, and love how they match the paper. Thanks for playing again at 52 CCT
