Red and white Christmas

Just a quick post from me showing the card I made tonight. I had another look at this week's TMS sketch and instantly knew what I wanted to create.

I cut off a corner from a piece of red cardstock and adhered this and several strips of cardstock onto a sheet of printer paper before die cutting with a SSS stitched rectangle die. I stamped the sentiment and jingle bell onto a die cut tag and did some very basic colouring using pencils and then used my clear Wink of Stella on the bell. Some baker's twine and foam tape was all that was needed to finish things off.
