Green Bauble Card!

Hello and welcome to my blog!  Thank you so much for visiting me - I really appreciate it!  I was panicking a bit as I needed to make some quick Christmas cards to make up the number I needed and its not long till I have to post them!  I remembered a card I saw on the Fiskarettes UK Facebook Page, and I came up with this much simpler version which was perfect for what I needed!



I started off with a piece of Sheena stamping card and a couple of shades of green Brushos and gold Pixie powder.  I sprinkled the powders over the card then sprayed with quite a lot of water and picked the piece up and moved it around till it looked how I wanted.  It was very bright and very wet so I laid another piece of card on top, pressed down, which gave me two green and gold A4 pieces and I let them dry naturally.  The gold really glimmers but I am not sure how well you will be able to see in the photo.  I  punched out loads of circles with a circle punch then die cut lots of red bows from Stamplorations die set Gift Builder #2 - it cuts like a dream!  I drew the 'string' with a sparkly gold pen then glued the circle and die cut ribbon to the card base.  I am not sure what size the card base is, I have had them for ages!  I got them from QVC years ago and haven't used then - I still have lots!  They are smaller than DL.  I used my Misti to stamp the sentiment, I can't remember the set it came from.  I didn't add anything extra to embellish as I needed these to be as quick and clean and simple as they could be.  I love how they turned out though!  I did over twenty in this colourway and four in purple and silver but I haven't taken a photo of one of those yet.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

That's Crafty - Green With Envy.

CutPlorations - Photo Inspiration - I used the red and green tree ornaments for inspirations.




Stamplorations CAS Challange - Anything CAS with the optional colour twist of Gold.



Country View Challenges - Christmas with the option of Red, Green and Rust.

Time Out Challenges - Photo Inspiration - I took inspiration from the hanging red and green stockings.



Thank you again for visiting and I hope you are having a fabulous week!  Take care! Christine xxx

This is a lovely inky Christmas bauble card. I love the colours you obtained here. I enlarged it to enjoy the depth of the colour!
I too have to batch bake so to speak, but had two more crowns done today. Five hours in the dentist chair was about 4 hours too long if you ask me!

Natch baking starts tomorrow...

Fab card, I've been looking for some inspiration for cards I can do that are not too fussy. I'm behind yet again but have resolved not to go and buy cards so need to get a move on!
