Jingle Bells Christmas Card

This is an 8x8in white easel card. I have matt and layered the top and bottom with red and white embossed card. I embossed the white card using a Tattered Lace embossing folder. I printed the manuscript that I found on the internet. I tied red ribbon around the paper and added a bow. I die cut  the musical element using a die by Yvonne Creations. I cut the main element in black and added the green on top for the holly and brown for the robins. I added Tonic Nuvo drops for the berries. I die cut the poinsettia with Tattered Lace dies. I cut the Jingle Bells with a Tonic die in green and red and created a drop shadow while attaching them to my card. 

On the bottom of my card I have attached die cut rectangles with foam pads so they will act as a stopper. The white rectangle will include a personalised sentiment closer to Christmas. Finally I added carol singers that were  cut with a Brittania die.
