Silver Bells

I love a 5 minute card- the time taken to make this one for 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown, although I do admit that thinking about the design took a lot longer. It would be great for a set of cards too.
The cue for my card ( and yours, if you choose to join in with the challenge, and I hope you will!) is...

I think this is the first time we've done bells and I had to dig deep into my Christmas crafting stash to find a small bell punch. The washi tape is new, though,

I would have put the tape lower, just using a third of the White space, but then the bells didn't fit and you can't have them upside down, can you! The clappers were cut off and replaced with small gems
You can see better on this picture.

As the card was so quick to make I even made a matching envelope. This CAS style really is my favourite style of card to make.


  1. Absolutely love it! Clean, simple and just a touch of sparkle too. Louise, I think it's fabulous!

  2. Such a lovely, stylish card Louise! Love that washi tape, April Xx

  3. très sobre et si élégant Louise, les clochettes sont très belles, biz

  4. Great job Louise - those sparkly bells are gorgeous. Gill xx

  5. Wonderful CAS card, Louise! Using the gems for the clappers was a clever idea that works perfectly with the sparkly silver bells.

  6. LOVE the tiny silver bells! Such an elegant card. I don't think I've ever managed a 5 minute card much less a 20 minute one that looks this good!


Thanks for leaving a comment. I love reading them all!
