New Year Bells by Julie Lavalette

Hi Cheery Lynn fans, it's JULIE here hosting the blog and today I am showcasing some more dies from our fabulous new release on my Festive card. In Scotland as the time changes from one Year to the next at midnight we associate this with hearing bells and fondly name it "The Bells". So I decided to combine the Happy New Year with The Christmas Bells onto my card.

My Happy New Year was layered twice for a shadow effect adding on my party hats which had been embossed with Red Tinsel Embossing Powder. Finishing with some snow accents using a Snow Writer pen and Glamour Dust for added sparkle.

I sprinkled a scattering of Frantage on my Holly Leaves, shaded my Berries with Distress inks adding Glossy Accents for a realistic look. My bells were shaded in two colours of Gold Pens adding a little Archival ink to give them an aged feel. I layered up with foam tape for some extra dimension. I also think the bells would look amazing on a Wedding card.
