Gold Xmas Bell Tag/Ornament - New Look/Makeover

Created this Christmas Bell Tag and now I gave it a new look/makeover. 

You can click here to see details of former Tag.

Former Tag:

New Look/Makeover:

Made Bell more dimensional by cutting 2 pieces: top using gold glitter cardstock & 2nd piece using gold foil cardstock. Attached a jingle bell brad to gold foil cardstock piece and then used foam adhesive to put the 2 bell pieces together. Recycled some gold twine. Made the bell removable so it can be used as an ornament. Inked the edges of the tag. Stamped the Hero Arts sentiment tag & fussy cut out sentiment tag. Inked edges. Stamped sentiment on sentiment tag.
