Christmas Baubles (posted by Judith)

Hello everyone, Christmas is edging ever closer, as we are constantly reminded by TV adverts and social media. I don't know about you, but I am always wishing that I had more of my cards made ready to send for the Christmas season. I have made a relatively quick card to show you today that could be made up as a batch card, using some of your left over paper scraps.

I made a background using watercolour paper and Distress Inks, and then added further colour with a stencil. I chose a palette of green and purple, one of my favourites. I stamped the ivy flourish from the Beautiful Baubles clear stamp set across the top of the background using green ink, and added the sentiment across the bottom. After drying the background thoroughly, I stamped and embossed the chains and baubles using Versamark and gold embossing powder. I stamped the baubles again onto some scrapbook paper and decoupaged them onto the background. Some dark green card completes the card.

The possibilities are endless with this card layout, you can mix and match the colours that you use, or change the flourish that you use at the top. It really is a versatile stamp set and I hope that you have as much  fun creating cards with it as I have. Thanks for stopping by, Judith xx
