Another early Christmas card

Here is another Christmas card I put together trying to use just a few pieces.  The layout is not too complex but I just love how it turned out. 

The hardest thing about this card was making the bell gold and still have the bell’s ribbon red.  I didn’t have a gold marker, so I cut a small circle out of an index card and used that to mask the Jingle all the Way stamp except for the bell.  Then I inked it up with my gold Encore inkpad and removed the index card.  At that point, I could go to town on the stamp using markers to color the words and the ribbon.  I seriously don’t know what I would do without my marker set…best purchase ever!  The rest is just straight forward cutting and layering of paper.
