Outlawz Wednesday Sketch Time

 Happy Hump Day! Time for the new challenge at Outlawz Wednesday Sketch, sponsored by Anne's Digital Art
My design team sample make guessed it, another Christmas card! I'm trying to stay on a roll here, lol. I chose Anne's digi image Christmas Bow & Holly which I colored with Promarkers. I tried out my new Spectrum Noir Glitter Pens to color the image's berries and I colored all of the berries on the patterned paper gold, too!
At left is our current challenge sketch. I had a few of these Crafters Companion Create-A-Card Stacey dies already cut with Kraft card (I used one of them in the previous post here), so I used another one for this card. 
I cut Paper Studio Rustic Noel bells and plaid patterned papers with the dies for my layers, a strip of bells backed with Kraft card and two punched bells backed with Kraft. The plaid scalloped oval behind the focal image was cut using a Spellbinders Labels 6 die.
A shot of the back and front to show the continuity. I've used this paper collection before and have scraps so I used a scrap of another plaid in the collection along with a scrap of Kraft and more die cut plaid for the back along with a stamped and punched siggie.
This angle hopefully shows the glitter of all the tiny gold berries on the bells paper that I colored with my glitter pen. I checked 3 times so hope I didn't miss one. 😊 
And final view.  Another Christmas card made, yes! I'm hoping to make a dent in my goal total before mid-year creeps up on me. I would love it if Christmas In July leaves me feeling empowered for once instead of in catch-up panic! 🔑🔒🔓🔑
Have a great day and get your craft on if you can! XOX

I chose top row across: 2+ layers on base/glitter/red
Christmas Red and Green
I used an Anne's Digital Art image

Thanks so much Aimeslee for creating a 2nd entry to MTTCC's bell theme challenge!!! This one is super festive and the shape of the base, especially the top curves remind me of some bells with their top curves. The traditional reds and greens with the plaid and touches of gold certainly make you think of a festive Christmas! --Becca/DT

Aimeslee this is gorgeous!!! I've never made a tag card from scratch - just bought the pre-folded card (which I've never used).
