The Bell Rings

Today's Christmas card is another Beccy's Place image, Silver Bell. I have to admit it feels a bit odd posting her image when it's not for a certain letter.  I so very much enjoyed her 30 days of Christmas card Challenge. 

I love this image sized large to be the focal point of my card. 

 I sized the bell to just over 3" and added one of the sentiments from the same package to the right.  After printing, I used Copic markers for coloring and then die cut the decorative edge with Gina Marie Designs Labels Two.

I cut the red mat 1/8" smaller than the A2 white card base and secured it.  Then I selected the light gray matting with coordinating multi colored dots, cut it 1/8" smaller than the red mat and secured it to the base.  

Before securing the colored image, I thought it needed something to separate the white/gray combo so I took my Copic B66 and carefully colored the edge of the fancy die cut. Then I secured it to the center to complete the design.
