Jingle Bells

Hello crafty friends,

Today's card features the Whispers Retro Jukebox die from the October 2015 release.  This die is truly a fun one to work with.


I started, by stamping a music sheet background onto white card stock and distressing it a bit.  I didn't want the background to stand out too much, so I stamped it with Old Paper Distress Ink and used the same ink to distress the paper once it was cut to size.  I used a green piece of pattern paper I had in my scrap pile as a mat.  Next, I die cut the jukebox twice, once from black card stock (bottom layer) and once from green card stock (top layer).  I got rid of the music bars from the green die cut and backed it with a piece of black card stock.  I added dimensional foam behind it and mounted it over the black die cut piece.  Then, I attached the green and black jukebox element to the card.

Next, I reached for one of my most used dies during the Holidays... the Complements Holiday 1 die and die cut the words "Jingle Bells" twice from green card stock.  Just so you know, whenever I die cut words from this or any other small word die, I always back the card stock with some kind of double sided tape.    


I hope you liked today's card. I found the new Whispers Retro Jukebox die very easy to work with and I'm looking forward to creating other projects with it.  Thanks for stopping bye, leave me some feedback or links to your projects using some of these die.
