Tutti Designs - Nativity Bell

Happy Monday, my friends!

I'm here with a new Tutti Designs DT share!

This beautiful die is called Nativity Bell.
As soon as I saw it, an idea popped into my head. 
I didn't know if it would work out but I knew I'd have fun trying!
It ended up working out very nicely! :o)

Here's what I made:

Here's the die I used:

Here's how I did it:

I began by cutting the die four times.
A solid paper will display the intricate details best.
Also, both the front and back of the paper will be showing, 
so keep that in mind when choosing your paper.
I used a solid red shimmer cardstock.

Next, score the die right down the center. 
Do this two times with the right side up,
and two times with the wrong side up.

Here's what all four die-cuts look like:

Using a glue pen, and matching the die-cuts up carefully,
adhere two of the dies together.
Repeat with the other two dies.
You now have two pieces that look like this:

Here's what it looks like so far:

Now adhere these two pieces together, and it looks like this.
I used a makeup sponge, and inked the ornament edges with gold ink.

It's a little early to have my tree set up, so I improvised! :o)
I added a metallic gold ribbon to the top for hanging.

Materials Used
Papers: Recollections - Holiday Shimmer Cardstock;
Die: Tutti Designs - Nativity Bell.
