Steps:

  1. Score the light purple marbled cardstock to create a card sized 5.6" x 4.1".
  2. Add additional detail to the purple colored handmade tissue paper. Use the bronze pen to color the stamp, put it on the paper and press down. Repeat to add random stars to the paper. Then, add some squiggles, broken lines and dots with the white, magenta and black pens.
  3. With the fold at the top, centre and glue the handmade paper to the front of the card.

  5. Use the bell cookie cutter and the pencil to trace three bells on to the light purple cardstock, and cut the bells out. Use the Giotto bronze pen to add detail to each cardstock bell.
  6. Use the semi-circular needle to thread a piece of embroidery floss through the top of each bell. Make a nice bow with each piece of floss and cut the ends shorter to make the bow neat.
  7. Add the bells to the front of the card. Use glue for the bells on the left and right, and use self-adhesive 3D foam squares to affix the bell in the middle.
  8. Use the paintbrush and the gold dusting powder to add a gold shimmer to some areas on the card.
