Jingle Bells, clean & simple Christmas card

Good morning everyone!
That's another weekend over...I hope you had a good one :)
We are continuing with the Christmas Countdown at Creative Craft World
(the DT have made festive projects for every day of November)
and it's my turn today.
I have made a clean & simple Christmas card which is based on the theme at Less is More this week.
It's to use 'hardware' on your card.
I bought the little bells from Meiflower at the craft show on Thursday and couldn't resist using them on my card today.
I cut and scored a white card blank and then cut another piece of white card and embossed it with snow dots embossing folder (not sure of the proper name but it's by Cuttlebug!)
Then I pierced holes on each side of this card for the brads.
I made jump rings from silver wire, put them on the bells and threaded them on the beaded string.
I tied the 'string' around the brads and then inserted them in the holes securing at the back.
The sentiment is computer generated using MTF Sweet Cheeks font, which I cut into a tag and tied a bow at the top.
I then layered it all on the base card with foam pads.
I hope you're enjoying our festive projects and I hope you'll come back tomorrow
when I'll have the link to Lou's blog for her project.
Thanks so much for popping in!
I hope you have a lovely Monday :)
Take care,
Sarah xx
