A Variation of a theme - Christmas Bells

Hello friends, thank you for stopping by today.  I have another Christmas card - it is a variation of a theme using some of my left over kits from interstate Workshops to get them happening faster - and of course my Spellbinders Dies.  You can see the full instructions HERE the original gorgeous Joy Fold Card - with a twist!

1. Cut green card base to 11cm x 16cm - score at 11cm
2. Cut patterned paper to 10.5cm x 15.5cm, the second piece 11cm x 4.5cm
3. Cut a third square of patterned paper to 7cm x 7cm
4. Adhere the patterned paper using E-Z Runner - adding lace across the lower panel.
5. Cut red the card to 7.5cm x 15cm - score at 7.5cm.
6. Adhere to the center of the card base using E-Z Runner Permanent Adhesive on the back. Make sure the fold of the smaller flap is facing down
7. Stamp the sentiment onto a white card insert 7cm x 7cm and adhere to the red card stock.

8. Cut/emboss one (1) Art Deco Fairmont Labels #1 (#1 being the smallest).
9. Pop up onto green card stock, trimmed to the size of the Art Deco Labels, pop up onto the front panel using 3D Foam Squares.
10.Adhere the Bells sticker to the centre of the layered Art Deco Fairmont Labels and small red pearls to each corner of the patterned paper.
11.Cut one small circle in patterned paper and one the next size up in red card
12.Attach the smaller circle to the larger one using double sided tape.
13.Attach 3D foam squares to the lower portion of the circle and adhere to the lower corner of the card slightly over the edge of the smaller flap to keep it closed. Embellish using a recycled button. 
14.Attach layered card front to the pre-cut card base using Fairmont Labels and white card stock.
