28 Days 'til Christmas!

Good evening and Happy Thanksgiving to all you American readers.
I'd just worked out out that there are only 28 sleeps left until Christmas! Arrgh!!!
So here is another card for my stash.


I do apologies for the quality of the image, the light went before I could photograph it in daylight and mirror card doesn't photograph well in artificial light!
I used the layout from The Paper Players for this card, using two of the stamps from STAMPlorations Vignette: Christmas Bells. The white and gold tag were cut using a Sizzix thinlet die, the top one being stamped then embossed in gold and set at an angle to the first. I stamped then embossed in gold the bells from the set, adding some Copic colour to add extra interest. The banner is a strip of vellum and the base card was embossed with a Cuttlebug falling snow EF. Red and gold ribbon, from my stash complete the card.
I'd like to join in over at -

  3. Thanks for that Julie!! Actually as I was riding back up the lane this morning it actually dawned on me that we are four weeks away...eek!! This is such a lovely card, love the Cuttlebug embossed background, it was the first EF I ever owned and came in the "starter kit" I got with my bug many moons ago!! The gold accents looks wonderful too xx
