Outside the box uses for Gingerbread Dies

Shimmery Bells Card Tutorial

Shimmery Bells Card Tutorial

Going outside the box with the Stampin Up Gingerbread Dies from the Gingerbread & Peppermint Suite. From holiday bells to birthday, sympathy or wedding card, this fits a lot of occasions. What do you think of when you see this Shimmery Bells Card Tutorial?

I used the Stampin’ Up Shimmer White cardstock so it has shimmer. If you can believe it, this card has 7 items on the supply list and that includes the die cut machine and adhesives. Talk about simple beauty. 

I have more details and easy to follow, printable instructions for this card below.


Shimmery Bells Card

I love taking products “outside the box” and creating something totally different then what is expected. These bell dies are from the Stampin Up Gingerbread Dies. They were created to make “gingerbread” cookies but they have so many more uses. 

Card Tutorial

The bells are 2 parts. A solid bell and an outline design. They can be used together to create this style of look, or individually.

I liked it without words but you can easily add them. Simply changing a greeting will make this card design good for any occasion.
