Today's card features the super cute Bella and Friends stamp set. After I created this card, I had been waiting to get a chance to get Bella ready for Christmas and when I saw this I knew I had to make the time! I had a few new supplies to play with so the timing was perfect! 

Bella and Friends stamp set, Stampin Up, Handstamped Christmas card by StampingJo.com

How To Make It: 

This card started with a base of Wild Wasabi cardstock.

Then, on Whisper White cardstock I stamped the cute dog from Bella and Friends with the Archival Basic Black ink. I allowed this to dry (or you can speed it up with the Heat Tool). Then, using the Aqua Painters, I used Crumb Cake ink to watercolor the dog's fur and then the Smoky Slate ink to add a little grounding under the dog. 

The oval Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies were then used to die cut the stamped dog image. 

Then I used the 1/16" Handheld Circle Punch to add a small hole to each side of the dog's neck. I used a needle threader to thread a piece of the Real Red twine from the Candy Cane Lane Baker's Twine through each hole so that it could be tied in front of the image. I used the needle threader again to add a Mini Jingle Bells to the twine and tied up. Such a cute collar!!

The Jolly Hat Builder Punch was used to punch some Real Red cardstock and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper to create the Santa hat- the pieces were assembled using Mini Glue Dots and added to the top of Bella's head on the oval die cut using Mini Glue Dots as well. 

The sentiment from the Hang Your Stockings stamp set was stamped with Real Red ink on Whisper White cardstock. Then, I used the Classic Label Punch to punch each line out seperately, being careful not to punch the other stamped lines. 

Each punched sentiment strip was then adhered to one of the large silver Metallic Foil Doilies

The Silver Satin Ribbon was trimmed and added to the card front using a strip of Tear & Tape Adhesive to hold it in place. Then the Metallic Foil Doily was adhered on top of that and then the stamped oval ensemble was adhered as shown.
