Surprise: another New Year bell card style

2012-2013 winter holiday cards

Sneak peek at inspirations for trying another bell-theme card:

Tiny Crafts' has a glitter foam sheets with adhesive backing that I discovered out shopping yesterday. They have a pastel color combo set and a bold color combo available. The bold blue glitter foam sheets were used as the theme and color inspiration for this other bell style holiday card.

To get inspiration for the layouts I merged 2 ideas from a purchased book on different techniques to use for card-making (see photos).

Here's the series of photos:

layout inspiration for crazy quilt effect

book cover photo: both layout pages are from this book
bell shape traced and cut out for each card's front and slightly enlarging bell shape so that the glittered foam ones on inside will not fall inside the opening when the cards are closed
