The Outlawz - 12/4

Such a beautiful Christmas picture Laurian chose for this week's challenge at The Outlawz.  Along with the twist, it is perfect for the holiday season.  I decided that my Silhouette was not doing me any good sitting on the closet shelf, so now is the time to use it.  I have not used it very much since I bought it in late summer.   I searched "bells" in the store and found this die.  So far I haven't discovered how to separate the parts of a die to not have to cut the whole thing for each part, so I cut one in each color.  I might try to see if I can make use of the extra parts even though they are in different colors for a bell.  I used cardstock from my stash and after a few false starts, finally got the bell to cut.  I embossed the white background with a Sizzix die I've had for a couple years.  The die cut of the bell is popped with foam tape.  The sentiment is from Stampendous Tis the Season set, which reflects my feelings.  I put Glossy Accents on the berries and it wasn't quite dry when I took the picture, so it looks cloudy.  It did dry clear.
