Jingle Bells Card

This is an idea I had a couple of years ago, I even located the die in the US, but when it arrived it was put in a drawer to gather dust.
Well today I finally got it out and I am so pleased with how it’s turned out and now wish I had used it sooner!

The die is Sizzix – Shadow Box Upper Case J No. 38-0457
J die
I am sorry there is no name on the paper I have used. The bells are taken off a fancy bit of trimming I’ve also had for ages and the writing is my own.  Simple and cute.

Love these cards. I want a sissix thing! Can you recommend yours? I don't know what to get.

I love the hand writing. I was watching a program on QVC probably and the lady did some amazing things just by writing.

LOVE these 'J' cards and your writing ...may have to use the idea and have a go at the writing too. I tried it once but it looked like a drunk spider had put her leg in an ink pot lol

Hi Sam

I had a cuttlebug for a couple of years and loved it, but I sold it on ebay to fund a Bigshot because I saw the fantastic XL Boxes Sizzix were bringing out and needed a bigger machine. The bigshot is great and takes all my dies (not that I have a lot)

Having said that I have asked santa for a Sizzix sidekick for my small dies just as it would be more convienent when working at my desk.

My big regret - selling my cuttlebug alphabets!!!

Hi I popped over to your blog as I noticed someone had visited my blog via your blog.
Next time I update my blog list I will add your one to it.
I love the Jingle Bells cards you have made. Also like the triangle tree ones.

Love it and I have some of these little bells. Never thought to use them like that.

Thanks Helen, I think the Big Shot it is for my first machine. Seems to be more versatile and robust from reading lots of comments online.
