25 Days of Christmas Crafting Day 13 – Bells and DCD Bells Will be Ringing

The theme for my 25 Days of Christmas Crafting today is Bells to coincide with Die Cuttin’ Divas’ challenge, Bells Will be Ringing!  Jingle bells, Christmas bells, sleigh bells, you name it.  This is the pillow box I had so much trouble with awhile ago.  How frustrating!  But I finally got it done.  One.  I was going to make four but I decided to quit while I was ahead.

p1130464My Jingle Bell is from Miss Kate’s Cuttables.  It was a freebie a couple of weeks ago.  I had some trouble cutting it out, so I omitted the white layer, which didn’t want to cut on my machine that day, and used a white gel pen instead for the “highlight.”  I also was not successful cutting out the little sprig of greens, which would have looked so pretty.

The pillow box I originally wanted to use was from My Scrap Chick – Ho Ho Ho Pillow box, but it got stuck to my mat and I got mad at it

    Don’t you hate it when that happens! UGH! Glad you used a gel pen instead – still gives it that look and I like the embossing on the box! Have a great day! 🙂
