Christmas Baubles (by Julie)

Hello, hope you are enjoying this hot weather. However in craft world it is Christmas so here goes  a couple of Christmas cards...

My first card is stamped with Pears and Baubles and Robin the Spruce.
I stamped one of the baubles onto the base card with a teal dye ink and glued a silver bow to the neck for added detail. I then inked up the foliage stamp from Robin the Spruce using a lighter green ink to start with and then added in a few dark green branches for contrast. To finish off I stamped the second bauble onto spare card. I inked up the stamp with the teal dye ink as before but added sparkle embossing powder to the stamped design before it had chance to dry and then set it with a heat gun. Using scissors I cut out the bauble, glued on a silver bow and then attached to the front of the card with foam pads.

My second project is a DL card. I created the background by stamping the Christmas Tree from Pears and Baubles onto black card using a metallic Brilliance ink. I cut the card to DL size and then using a ruler and gold metallic pen I outlined the border, before attaching to the card blank. I stamped the sentiment onto separate black card and attached to the front with foam pads. The baubles were stamped and clear embossed onto white card-stock which I then cut out, attached bows to each bauble and then attached to the card with foam pads.

Thank you for stopping by. Please call back soon for more design team inspiration.
