Ringing in the New Year

New Year Greetings!!!These cards were an exercise in how to use a die that was too big for the small scraps of paper I had.  I decided I wanted to go with the theme of ringing in the new year.  The only bells I had were the Gleaming Bells die no. 98949.  The silver mirror paper I wanted to use was cut to bookmark size.  So I ran the bells through the die cutting machine three times and then cobbled them together with glue dots to get the look I was after.  Don't be afraid to cut apart your die cuts and rearrange them to fit your card design!

These are the dies I used:


I used black cardstock and silver mirror paper and Dove Gray notecards.

And these are the finished cards:



I just love the Party Music coming out of the bell...I just tucked the G Clef end of the music staff into the bell and taped it in place on the back.  

My hope for you in the New Year is that you have plenty of time to create and lots of Memory Box dies, stencils and stamps to play with (as well as Poppystamps and Open Studio products, too)!

Happy Crafting!


Fantastic cards.

Those are striking! LOVE.

Awesome cards.
