Cut a large Circle and decorate with a floral stamp and emboss with gold embossing powder and a heat gun, then ink over with  a Tim holts 'Red brick' Distress ink pad and glitter randomly to give a  silver and gold frosting to the 'bauble'. cut out an aperture in it using the floral doily die then cut an apeture in that using the spellbinders die Classic Scalloped circle. this makes a frame for bella to sit in.  cut out 2 silver flourish dies in silver card and mount your coloured and cut out 'Bella' onto it. I used promarkers on her and added some clear sparkle glitter to her hat.

Cut an aperture using the spellbinders die Classic Scalloped circle  in a square white base card and add acetate to aperture cover back with patterned paper from the Annabelle Christmas paper pack edge front and back with silver peel off stickers. add Bella to acetate using glue and cover workings on inside with a disc.

Add 2 cut ribbons using the Spellbinders ribbon banners die and place your sentiment to the front of your card. I cut mine in silver and red. Add a bow to the top to finish front of card



Inside the card, cover the back with matching paper from Annabella Christmas paper pack and cut a Triangle from a contrasting paper and add to make pocket. I decorated mine with an edger punch from my punch collection ,the stamped image of Bella again, some paper buttons and a 'merry christmas' sentiment stamp.  add a bookmark or substitute gift. This was an easy card to make and Bella was a joy to stamp. Why not check out this stamp and other Bella stamps in the wild Rose Studio collection at the J & C Creations Website
