ODBD November New Release Blog Hop

Good morning!
I'm so excited to show you these new stamps for Christmas!
My first card features the new Jingle Bell Time stamp set.
Today I've done the bells in silver remembering my favorite Christmas song from the radio when I was a kid growing up, "Silver Bells."
The card I did for the pre-release had golden bells (you can see that one below).



I used the Fancy Fold card, Tri-Fold for this project, along with the new Snow Crystals die, Squares, Lovely Leaves and Snowflake Season Collection paper.
I stamped my image and sentiment then color my image with Copic Markers and die cut.  I cut my Snowflake Season paper into pieces to fit the card and cut a darker red mat for each then glued them to my card and proceeded to decorate.
I glued my image/sentiment to the center and made little foliage bundles for the top 2 corners with red bows (like I would do at home for corners of a mirror or window).  The red cord I have is 3 strand and when untwisted it makes a nice curly cord, I used this to "hang" my silver snowflakes.
When your recipient receives this type card, they can display it the whole Christmas season for all to enjoy.  It folds flat to 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 and can be mailed in a regular card size envelope.


This next card features the new Merry & Bright set.
I decorated the 3 panels inside and out with the Snowflake Season paper and red card stock, glued the borders to the top and then die cut all my snowflakes and leaves (it took a lot of leaves).  
I stamped, die cut and colored my lights and then stamped and embossed my sentiments on separated pieces of white card stock and die cut.
Now I'm ready to decorate.  I attached my sentiments and then started working my foliage like a braid, white leaves, then pink and green pine branches down the card like a stair banister.  I then glued my lights to the foliage and added the little red bows.  I added the white snowflakes to the center red panel to bring it all together.
