I love the Polar Express book and thought it would be fun to make a bell shaped card with the word "Believe" on it. This card went together so quickly!
The bell is from the Christmas Solutions cartridge. I cut two of the shadows at 4 inches. Then scored a line about 1/2 inch from the top of one of the shadow cuts and folded on the score line. I ran a line of adhesive above the fold and stuck the two shadows together. This makes a card base that folds at the top. (No Gypsy or welding needed!)

I cut the bell shape and layers at 4 inches from this fabulous gold paper from a DCWV Christmas stack. I inked all of the edges with a metallic gold ink pad then used dimensionals to pop the center layer of the bell up a bit.
The stamped "Believe" is from my new Merry Christmas stamp set. I used Cranberry Crinkle Ribbon for the bow and a button from my stash. For the tag, I stamped the sentiment on cream paper, inked the edges with gold, and then matted it with gold paper. I had to ink the edges of the gold paper to so that it would match everything.
Overall, a pretty easy card to make. Have a great weekend!!
