Holiday stamp a stack, part 1, project 4

Hi stampers!

Sometimes, just to switch things up a bit, I like to make 3 x 6 cards.  They are easy to make if you have 12 x 12 card stock on hand because all you have to do is cut the c/s in quarters and fold.  Viola!  You have four cards.

For this card, we used two different designer papers.   I used different papers than the gals used because I had just enough paper for them - needed to make the model out of different paper.  The ladies were given the option of either making the accordian-folded medallion in the middle or simply use the flattened scalloped circle.  Some chose to fold the medallion, others didn't.  The folded medallion is made from two scalloped circles that are scored and accordian-folded and then the ends are attached to each other.  Behind the bells you will see the punched ornament - it turned out to be a great backing for the bells and was way quicker to cut.  We used two different shimmer paints on the bells.

This is the papers the gals used with the flat scalloped circle.  Popular card!
