I so love this card. I just know that some little person will get a big kick out of it! Best of all, since it is all DP with no stamping, it was real quick. About 20 minutes, including printing the template and digging through my stash for the paper and the bell.
This was a real stash card. The green holly DP is I think the first paper I ever bought from CM - back in around 1998. I have no idea where the bell came from. It was floating in my wrapping paper stash, it was so old, it pre-dated my card-making stash.
The template cam from the Waltzing Mouse site here. It is really for a gift card holder but I adapted it for a card. I saw the template last year and am so glad that I'm finally using it. This was again prompted by the Hope You Can Cling to Challenge. We are to make a shaped card. This is the second challenge I've had to make duplicate cards because I can't give it away without friends/family seeing.
