Day 9 of 25 Days Christmas And Year ‘Round

25days2013-day9
Hello crafty friends, So sorry today's post is super late. Bright house had to come out and get our internet wireless router replaced!  So now that I am back online, here is my project for today. I created this card with some DCWV Die Cuts With A View Bella Armoire Stack Paper. I also colored my bell in with some Copic Markers and some CTMH Markers.

Here is a view of the inside of the card. The Christmas blessing sentiment is an svg cut file from the PCW Christmas Blessings CF Set at PCW. All it needs is my personal note and it is ready to be sent off.

Here is a closer-side view of the bell. It was a PCW digi stamp. I colored it in with various Copic Markers and also the Cranberry CTMH Marker.

All of the paper, I used for this card came from one piece of paper in the DCWV Bella Armoire Stack

Quick Tip
punch frame-480
The white scalloped frame was created by using an EK Success border punch. I started with a 4.5” square of white cardstock. I measured to find the center of each of the four sides. Which was approximately 2.25”. I used my pencil to create a line. If using a scoring tool, then you only  have to measure two sides to draw a line. The most important thing is to start your first punch right in the center in the line.
