Below is my post for today at Classy Cards 'n Such!

Hi, Diane here with you today on the Classy Cards 'n Such blog.
Do you have your Christmas cards done yet??  I am still working on mine.
I made a simple, fast, but "classy and pretty" card to show you today.
Embossing on plain white card stock, I added an intricate bell from
Cheery Lynn Designs "Bow and Bell".  Not only do you get the bell die,
but the bow as well.  Being the delicate die it is, I recommend using the
cuttlehug when running it through your die machine.
Now, I have to tell you about the bow.  You know the red velvet ribbon
you see sold on rolls for your outside wreaths?  This is what my "bow" is
cut from, giving a "velvet" texture to the card. don't you love the look of it?
I also added a sentiment from the Flourishes set "Country Time Christmas".
I added a real jingle bell , but for easy mailing purposes you might want to add
one of the "Jolly Jingle Bells" from Memory Box.
I hope you have enjoyed todays post and will be back again soon.
